TANZANIADar Es Salaam - Feature Photograph
The vibrant sun calls me from my slumber and declares “I am back again, just like yesterday and I will be back tomorrow” I arise wiping sleep from my eyes and upon opening the curtains I behold the immense beauty that is my privilege to embrace. So glad that very near the city you can find beaches like this to nurture your soul and rest your body. – Paul M Hansen
Lonely Planet describes it like this. “Over the last century, Dar es Salaam has transformed from a sleepy Zaramo fishing village into a thriving, striving, smoke-belching metropolis of over four million people (and growing). Straddling some of the most important sea routes in the world, it is East Africa’s second-busiest port and Tanzania’s commercial and cultural hub.”
THAILANDPhuket - Feature Photograph
One of my favorite evenings in Phuket. I stumbled upon a whole school of young monks who were taking in the sunset. My heart beat as I ran trying to capture some images before they left and was glad to catch this young boy beholding the beuaty of this gorgeous sunset.
Travellers who think that Phuket is all beaches and no culture may be surprised to find that there’s more to Thailand’s most popular Andaman isle than sun and sea. Ditch your beach towel and head to the island’s east coast: cultural capital Phuket Town will whizz you right back to the island’s roots. – from Lonely Planet
A little encouragement with a few clips shot mostly by Lisa on her iphone 6 (1st, 3rd & 4th shots), a drone sunrise and a sadhu from pashupatinath with theD600 & 50 mm.
You are invited to purchase a digital image below
Camera gear is expensive! Traveling is Expensive! But don’t worry Im addicted and wont stop. If you would like to help in a small way and keep the images rolling go ahead and buy a print you love to hang in your office or on your home walls. You will have some cool art on your wall and I will have hope that I can muster more than oohs, awes and facebook likes 🙂
Welcome To My Travel Photography
One of the most fantastic things that ever happened to me was the rare opportunity I had to travel to India at the young age of 16. Thus begun the wanderlust and travel photography that has led to exploring and adventuring through 5 continents while actually having the privilege of living on 3 different ones – not at the same time! I love to shoot travel photography that captures the beauty of the landscapes, light, culture and people of Asia.
Despite living next door for a couple of years my first trip into Nepal was only in 2012. After my first visit to Katmandu, Pokhara and some other areas of Nepal I was truly disappointed that I took so long to make it to Nepal. Its time to make up for lost adventures! We have just returned (Nov 2016) back from an amazing trip! We have continued building a partnership with Mitra Nepal an NGO that has changed forever the lives of 16 children rescued from the streets and a life of abject poverty. Plans are underway and the first homes foundation has just been laid to rescue another 25 children. An additional home will be built on the same property to take in an additional 25 children after the completion of the first house.
