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 […]

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 […]

I’m happy to finally unveil a selection of images created for my latest client – beautifully designed Wellness Center at TAO Inspired Living development in Riviera Maya, Mexico. In the next post I will share photos of private residences, exteriors and golf courses that comprise the rest of the project.


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.


GlamRocks Jewelry Spring/Summer 2013

Earlier this month I had a wonderful time shooting new look book images for GlamRocks Jewelry Spring/Summer 2013 collection. I want to express an enormous thanks to Kristen Davis Molenhouse for trusting me to capture the beauty of her lovely designs, to Mariam Dedyn for her glow and inspiration, and of course to the beaches […]


End of the World Kite Story

If you’ve been following my blog, you may already know that I often hang out with local Tulum kitesurfing friends who flock here from all over the world during winter. The guys at OceanProKite love to put on a show when I bring my camera just as much as I love shooting it, which over […]


Return to Sian Ka’an Lagoons

From the streets of NYC straight into the tangled jungles of Sian Ka’an biosphere… Admittedly, the transition was rough at times, but in the end came relief of knowing I can handle my extremes. And for that I’m grateful.


JOSA Tulum: Jashita Hotel Shoot

Josa Tulum Shoot at Jashita Hotel

Have I mentioned lately how much I enjoy shooting for JOSA Tulum? Not only am I a huge fan of their beautiful dresses and caftans, but when the shoot itself takes place at a location as gorgeous as Jashita Hotel – I do admit I forget that I’m actually working. Add to the mix collaborating […]


Don’t Say Cheese, Say Belize

Finding myself recently on the island of Caye Caulker in Belize, I spent a perfectly active Caribbean day in great company doing some sailing, snorkeling and exploring a small section of the Belize Barrier Reef. Located slightly offshore, the entire length of this coral reef system is roughly one-third of the 900-kilometer-long (560 miles) Mesoamerican […]


JOSA Tulum: Jungle Store Launch

Last month I was delighted to shoot the opening of JOSA Tulum – a fashionable little addition to Tulum’s budding boutique lineup. Headed by Joanne Salt and Ana Cabello, JOSA Tulum is a perfect fusion of Tulum and New York City. The goal and concept of JOSA is to provide women with dresses that can be […]


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 […]


Tulum Sunsets 2011: Quintana Roo, Mexico

Tulum Sunsets 2

When I first moved to Tulum, I couldn’t stop shooting sunsets. Now, two years later, I’m still shooting them. To mark the second anniversary of my tumultuous relationship with Mexico, I want to share this second installment of Tulum Sunsets series. And here is the first if you’d like to revisit.


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 […]


Introducing Masha Osipova

Masha Osipova

What happens when you put a photographer in front of the camera? Well, very good things. Especially when the subject is a documentary photographer Masha Osipova. Born in Moscow and grown up in Amsterdam, this talented young lady moved to Mexico with a heartfelt mission and a unique perspective. Among several intriguing projects, Masha’s long-term […]


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.

Caro Montes: Girl with a Guitar

Caro Montes is beloved in Mexico. Originally from Monterrey, Nuevo León, this gifted singer, composer and performer makes music that is fusion of electronic sound with pop, soul, rock and a touch of experimental. As part of jazz/rock group Aguamala (first band of her professional career) Caro is a regular performer at several international music festivals […]


Beachside Ashtanga

This Ashtanga yoga practice session with Julia in Tulum, Mexico, left me (and everyone on the beach) in awe of the sculptural beauty of human body held in balance by breath. Namaste!


Caribbean Storms

The annual hurricane season on Mexico’s Caribbean coast is thankfully long over. Quite the opposite, as my friend Marcos from Chiapas just informed me, the entire Yucatan peninsula is now well-immersed into the season of ‘secas’ or droughts. Nonetheless, lately I find myself missing the heavy storms and weeklong rains passing through. Perhaps my recent […]


Kitesurf Magazine: French-Mexican Adventure

Kitesurf Magazine from France is the first kitesurfing publication in the world, having been in circulation since late 1990’s, when this new extreme sport first went mainstream. Every year Hugo Badaroux, the magazine’s editor-in-chief, chooses a different country to conduct new kiteboarding gear tests and to explore new international locations suitable for riding. For 2011, […]

Tulum and Ocean Pro Kite welcome kiteboarding riders from Fun & Fly and Kitesurf Magazine from France to the sunny beaches of Yucatán Peninsula. As we enjoy the soft white sand and turquoise Caribbean waves, we mostly hope that Ik, Mayan god of wind, will bless us this season with a consistently strong breeze without […]
