Inside Peru

I spent most of September, 2014, traveling in Cusco Region of Southern Peru. Following an old personal dream to explore and photograph various parts of this region, I stepped way outside my own comfort zone and into another mysterious world as the ancient perspective of Inca unfolded before my senses. From Cusco to Pisac, Calca, […]


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.

Hooked on Yoga

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 […]


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 […]


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 […]

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.
