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. 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 […]


TAO Wellness Center, Riviera Maya, Mexico

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.


Quick Dip in Grand Cenote

Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful and truly unique phenomena in Yucatan are cenotes. A multitude of these fresh water sinkholes can be found throughout the area exposed as a result of limestone cave roof collapse. To the ancient Maya cenotes were sacred points of entrance to Xibalba, the underworld inhabited by death gods and spirits whose […]


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 […]


Urban Oasis: Summer Time in Central Park

Without a doubt, one of the best things about New York City is its Central Park. Designed by landscape designer and writer Frederick Law Olmsted and the English architect Calvert Vaux in 1858, it is the most visited urban park in the United States and an official National Historic Landmark since 1963. The park stretches […]


Ireland: West Kerry Landscapes

When life offered me an opportunity to visit Ireland last month, I jumped at the chance because I knew I would witness some incredible scenery. From our home base of Castlegregory, located in Kerry county on Ireland’s southwest coast and long popular among wind sports enthusiasts, we were able to freely explore the local turf […]


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 […]


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.


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 […]


Under the Weather: Isla Holbox, Mexico

During my recent trip to Isla Holbox, in Quintana Roo, Mexico, I was reminded just how extremely the weather and consequent mood fluctuations can tint perception of reality. From seemingly endless rain of the trip’s first half, then brilliant sunlight of the second, my time on this mysterious, hurricane-beaten island was marked by an emotional […]


In the Moonlight: Tulum, Mexico

Everything looks different in the moonlight… In Tulum the light of full moon is very special. Sometimes, when the sky is clear of cloud coverage, the moon is so bright, you can easily read by it. I like to come out at night during those times, put my camera on a tripod, and see what […]


Karuna Sky: Nayarit, Mexico

While staying true to my beloved photo-tradition of observing daily changes in the sky, I approached this project much more rigorously than my previous ‘Tulum Sunsets’ series. Namely, I treated it like a scientist would treat an experiment, controlling for all variables except my main subject – the sky. Depending on weather conditions, I narrowed […]


Baja Waves: Baja California Sur, Mexico

Sky. Desert. Ocean. All along the Pacific coast of Baja California Sur in Mexico, I was fascinated to watch the sheer raw strength with which the ocean continuously beat itself against the earth. I took my time studying the powerful waves, and the closer I observed them, the more beautiful details they revealed. From the […]


Cactus Land: Baja California Sur, Mexico

Cactus = Cactuses = Cacti. All for one and one for all, in my imagination cactus plants are like infantrymen. They live in the most difficult and desolate environments and make due with whatever scarse water resources the desert provides. In the Mexican state of Baja California Sur there’s virtually no rain fall throughout the […]


Peaks and Valleys: Chihuahua, Mexico

In the city of Chihuahua, we boarded the 6am El Chepe train. During the next several days it would take us along Mexico’s legendary, vast and tunnel-ridden Chihuahua-Pacific Railway (‘Ferrocarril Chihuahua-Pacífico’ or simply ‘El Chepe’ in Spanish,) cutting through peaks and valleys of Sierra Madre Occidental mountains to the Pacific coast. Thus I would come […]


Tulum Sunsets 2010: Quintana Roo, Mexico

A long time ago I fell in love with Tulum. Over the years, this Maya town on the Mexican Caribbean coast revealed to me a wondrous multitude of sights and sounds. Yet, when I followed an old dream of a new life by the sea, what moved me most was the drama of Tulum sunsets. […]
