Keeping up with life

It has now been a while since I posted something on the blog. Honestly I have been busy, but I also took some time away, to think some things out…


I have not been shooting that much and it did feel good at some point to take a break, but only to realize that what I needed to empty my head was to go and shoot! Being lost in some countryside, by myself or with a group of students, looking for the light and the next photo to take, is to me the best way to clear things out. There is nothing else that comes pollute my mind. It is just me and my quest for photography.


Also I just ended another amazing photography workshop in central Vietnam, focusing on people and landscape. Once again I was blown away by the dedication and motivation of my students, which fills me with some sort of infinite energy. The more I teach photography to people who are actually achieving something out of it, the more it fulfills me with inspiration and dedication.


The rest of the year will be filled with a few weddings, some commercial work and some resort photography. But I really can’t wait to be running my South East Asian tours, that will give me an amazing energy and inspiration. Be sure to find plenty of new articles on this website in December!
