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 […]

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.
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.
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 […]
In this story I’m switching gears to Central Mexico. Two months ago while traveling through Pátzcuaro region in the state of Michoacán I visited a magic little town called Santa Clara del Cobre. Since the Pátzcuaro region is mostly populated by the Tarascan or P’urhépecha people whose ancestors originally settled here in the 12th century, […]
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 […]
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 […]
During the Night of November 1-2 is Noche de los Muertos. In central Mexico’s state of Michoacan, local residents of towns around lake Pátzcuaro with fun-to-pronounce ancestral Tarascan names like Tzintzuntzan, Ihuatzio, and Chucuchucho, take their Day of the Dead traditions very seriously. With great curiosity I joined their annual pilgrimage to nearby cemeteries for all-night vigils in order to […]
Last week I was sponsored by Mexico Kan Tours, Tulum-based agency specializing in conscious travel, to visit central Mexico’s state of Michoacan for a photo-reportage of the famous Day of the Dead festivities held in towns and villages near Morelia and lake Pátzcuaro. Sharing the same values in travel with my friends at Mexico Kan […]
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 […]
If like me anyone out there is experiencing serious withdrawal pains from the recently completed 2012 Summer Olympics in London, I invite you to consider this story as a kind of an anglophile placebo. Its subject is gritty and unusual, related to England by way of forever-cool and classic English bikes. What I’m talking about […]
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 […]
Passing through Chicago earlier this summer, I was graced with a sudden opportunity to spend time on set of one of the most wonderful photographers in the world – Sandro Miller. Sandro was shooting the 2012/13 Season campaign images for the renowned Steppenwolf Theater that week and invited me to his studio to be part […]
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 […]
Last week in New York City it was my pleasure to participate in The Impossible Project’s 8×10 Polaroid film tests conducted by one of image-making world’s true visual poets – photographer Bill Phelps. This post is about how it all became possible. The Impossible Project story began in October 2008, after Polaroid announced it would stop […]
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 […]
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 […]
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 […]
