The Sandy Feet

2016 has gone off to a great start and so far I’ve been on the road every single day this year. Which is why I’d like to introduce you to my latest, ongoing project: The Sandy Feet. A platform where I’m sharing


What’s In My Camera Bag?

I’ve been on the road since August and couldn’t be happier with the choice of camera equipment I’ve packed. Back in 2014 when I switched from a Canon 1D and range of heavy lenses my goal was to reduce the weight of my camera gear to under 10Kg (22lb) as I knew I was going to be travelling for a long period in 2015.

It’s really all about removing as much as possible and reducing the packlist to the ultimate minimum.

To further reduce the weight of my equipment I also switched from a fully upgraded…


Paragliding Big Sur

Social Media is a strange thing. Sometimes it feels like you’re fighting for likes, shares, comments and numbers, then other times it becomes the very best platform to connect and link up with the best people possible.
Last weekend was one of those occasions where it proved to be the gateway to something new and exciting!.

I stumbled across a comment by Cromac O’Brian saying he’d be flying in Big Sur this weekend. I got curious and got in touch with him and it turns out he’s a passionate adventurer and paraglider. After a short conversation it was obvious I was going to be going to Big Sur for the weekend and shoot whatever was going to be happening there. If I could score a ride paragliding over California’s most impressive piece of coastline that was a bonus of course.


The Underwater Model Shoot

Shooting models underwater was something I had never tried before. And it was definitely a challenge!
Follow along on this special photo story and find out about the difficulties and problems we encountered, what equipment was used and how we edited the images to create an ‘out-of-this-world’ feeling to them.

We were camping at a place that had this long pier across the shallow reef which lead to a much deeper section of the ocean. And as we went snorkeling around Raiatea – an island in French Polynesia – we immediately noticed the clarity was beyond…


California Road Trip

Did you know that in California, with 8 free days and a fully decked out van it is frowned upon to not go on a road trip.

And so I did.

Inspired by the amazing imagery I’ve been seeing and working with at Chris Burkards studio over the past month I set out to capture my own version of the Californian epicness that Yosemite, Death Valley and the connecting roads have to offer.
With my trusted E-M1 and a couple of lenses the hunt for breathtaking views, golden light and empty spaces was on…


Billabong Pro 2015 Tahiti

In August 2015 the World Surf League took over the famous surf spot Teahupoo in Tahiti for a few days to hold one of the most exciting surf competitions on the planet, the Billabong Pro.
I made a selection of 40 images of the WSL Billabong Pro 2015 in Tahiti for you to enjoy. Have fun watching!


The Road To Teahupoo

Come and enjoy a short film of my journey to Teahupoo during the month of August. From getting lost in the dense bushes of Moorea all the way to pounding waves at world famous surf break at Teahupoo – French Polynesia has tons to offer and this is my attempt to do it justice. Sit back, relax and enjoy the ride.


Backpacking in French Polynesia

French Polynesia may not ring big bells in most people’s ears. Situated in the middle of the Pacific Ocean halfway between Sydney and Los Angeles, not even a dot on the world map it’s quite a remote and exquisite location. And if you’re not a big sailor like captain Cook or a lucky retired person searching the oceans of the world for a place to anchor your boat you might never think of going to this tiny dot on the world map. But if you are…
