Few days well spent at Casa Maya Ka’an

My recent production in Tulum, Mexico, was a dreamworld scenario – I had to stay at Casa Maya Ka’an for a few days and photograph the house and the wonderful Mayan family of staff who take care of the property. Best part – Casa Maya Ka’an is located on my favorite stretch of Mexican Caribbean coast […]

Hanal Pixán 2013 – Abandoned Hacienda Expo

Hanal Pixan 2013 Cholul Expo

Couple of weeks ago, during Mexico’s Day of the Dead weekend I was visiting my two photographer friends – Masha Osipova and Mauricio Palos – in Merida, Yucatán. We decided to play a 24-hour game. The objective was to: 1. Conceive of an idea for a photo-shoot using historically or culturally significant location We scouted Merida’s incredible abandoned haciendas left over […]


TAO Inspired Living Residential Community

For the TAO Inspired Living project I was hired to create a library of images that showcase values of connection, inspiration, creativity and compassion upon which this development was built. Located in a stunning jungle landscape along Riviera Maya’s Caribbean coast and designed with elegance and simplicity, TAO is a community of residents who share a common desire […]

Hooked on Yoga

In the beginning of 2013 I took my previously sporadic yoga practice to a much more disciplined level of focus and consistency. It changed my life. I would like to share a few recent images marking my progress.


Maya Sky

I spent the night of December 21 doing what I love most – shooting the sky. Completely impromptu at 1am, I drove with a friend to the nearby archeological site of Muyil, 25 km from Tulum, Mexico, woke up the sleeping Mayan guard and convinced him to let me shoot the deserted pyramid in the […]


On Maya Space and Time

The much hyped about date of December 21, 2012, is a couple of days away. Since I live on Yucatan peninsula, land of the Maya, many people ask me what I think about the Mayan calendar and its prediction of the end of the world. The truth is, since I make the choice to live […]


Good Night New York

Like a migratory bird, I recently flew south to Mexico for winter. But before I switch to posting images of sunny skies, turquoise waves and pre-columbian cities, I want to share these last few night-time photos of New York. To everyone I dearly miss in my favorite concrete jungle – I say goodnight and sweet […]


Urban Landscapes: New York City

I continue my urban image series with these soaring landscapes of New York. Encompassing day and night, earth and sky, light and water, this is my humble homage to the city that knows the secret to remaining beautiful and energetic despite continuous lack of sleep.


Fifty Shades of Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of my favorite cities in the world. Having explored this northern European urban jewel several times in the past, it was only recently during a very brief summer trip that I felt like I finally saw its true colors. Maybe because this time I was visiting a dear friend and got to […]


Liège-Guillemins: Train Station by Santiago Calatrava

To visit any space designed by the famed architect Santiago Calatrava for me is always a spiritual experience. His train station in Belgium’s third largest city of Liége was no different. Expansive, soaring and brilliantly light, the building sent shivers down my spine as I literally had to contain myself from dissolving into the structure […]


Welcome to Playa Azul

Playa Azul Tulum

For my latest assignment I was hired to shoot Playa Azul Hotel in Tulum, Mexico. It happens to be one of my long-time favorite establishments in the area, so I was thrilled about the opportunity to play freely on its beach turf. Playa Azul has all the trappings of what Tulum has become famous for […]


Venice Reflections

In September, the ancient and beautiful city of Venice, Italy, inspired me to begin including cityscapes to my blog’s current photography repertoire. It often seems like another life, but before relocating to a small town of Tulum on the Caribbean coast of Mexico, I had always been an urban dweller. As such, the experience of […]


COCO Tulum Experience

As I write this post on my Apple MacBook Pro at a friend’s apartment in Brussels, I am delighted to relive every moment captured during my September shoot at Coco Tulum Hotel. I love Europe so dearly, especially the brisk October weather up north, yet this particular slideshow makes me realize yet again that more […]


Tropical Exteriors

Oceanside living in Mexico’s tropical climate inevitably means developing a symbiotic relationship with nature. Blurring the line between ‘inside’ and ‘outside’ space, the exteriors of these boutique hotels and private residences along Caribbean and Pacific coasts showcase the beautiful equilibrium of design when human beings work in collaboration with mother nature.
