Entering Troll country. Beware!

Norwegian Road Trip

The idea all started in a cramped 50 square meter high-rise condominium, dead center of the Metropolis that is Bangkok. It was decided that we were to leave the hustle and bustle of big city and book a flight to somewhere far, somewhere that would bring joyous tears to our eyes everywhere we looked. The search for beauty and grandiose was on. There were many wonderful destinations to pick from.

Bikini Fashion Photography Workshop – Koh Samet

I went on an amazing once-in-a-lifetime bikini fashion photography mentorship on Koh Samet with the legendary Tada Varich of Vogue Thailand (among other publications) fame.

Looking Back To Africa

Ah! While looking through my Lightroom archives I always make sure to sneak a click or two in my Africa album. It was such an eye opener for me to be able to photograph animals in their natural habitat in such a faraway place. I couldn’t believe my luck when I was asked to fly (business class mind you!) on Kenya Airways to Tanzania by the Royal Bangkok Sports Club to do an article for their magazine. I got so excited and wanted to do my best, I rented a telephoto lens just for the occasion (EF 70-200mm f/4L IS …
