Happiness comes in waves. The feature picture for this post was taken a few months ago, on my annual trip to the Bahamas. We couldn’t imagine that the entire world would go into a pandemic mode with a full or partial lockdown. And here we are. Safe... 

Ever thought of starting a blog? Or maybe you already started one but would like to get your writings in front of a larger audience. You can implement these eight practical tips right away to get into the right blogging mindset. Blog frequently M... 

Have you always wanted to travel around the world but want tips and encouragement before you take the plunge? Or maybe you are currently living abroad and need some nomadic lifestyle tips on how to live and prosper while walking down the road less... 

It’s funny how just over ten years ago no one had even heard of Facebook. Yet today we seem to experience physical stress when we’re de-friending (or being de-friended by) someone on the social network. I’ve struggled with the definition of “... 

I’m a bit opinionated when it comes to taking pictures, in particular travel photography. There are plenty of, sometimes useful, books already written that attempt to help you get the most out of your camera and take the best travel snapshots possi... 

In my photography book A View to Take Home I explored the awe-inspiring beauty of Western Canadian provinces Alberta and British Columbia by motorcycle. Today, I'm going to share some of the highlights of Canada’s westernmost province: beautiful B... 

Using a camera is very simple. Just look through the viewfinder or display, point it at the subject and press the shutter. Results however may vary. Have you ever tried taking a perfect photograph on vacation or while traveling, and after you came ho... 

I've been lugging around a big DSLR and lens kits for years on my travels, but after my recent trip to New York I decided I've strained my back enough. The technology behind cameras hasn't really changed for years - all the big players really did was... 

A while ago, a 4 year old girl came to my booth at one of the art festivals I participated in, looking for freebies. Quite excited about the free wristband in her all-time favourite colour (blue!) I gave her, she wanted to buy my book. Her mom wouldn... 

A few weeks ago I wrote about one of the mostexpensive photographs I've created so far. While not as expensive as New York City, chartering a seaboat plane in Vancouver was definitely up there in price too, but a fun experience resulting in some uni... 

My inspiration comes from traveling all over the world: I fell in love with the exceptional things I saw and the remarkable people who crossed my path. My photographic art is my way of giving some of my travel memories back to the world. Check out... 

Most photographs dont come naturally even with the most beautiful models. A good, professional photographer can give you some photo tips and guide you through a variety of model poses throughout the photo shoot. But whether you aspire to appear in p... 

In one of my photography events, someone said these days everyone calls themselves a photographer. In a way its true. It doesnt take much to head over to some big box store, buy fancy camera and call yourself a photographer. I wrote another pos... 

It all began in 2008, I was 26 at the time. Young, green, and very naive. I knew I wanted something different. Not because the life I had in Europe was so bad. It was pretty great, actually. The ability to just get in a car and drive to Paris is one ... 

This image takes me back to Paris. It was late summer of 2011 and I went back to Europe for the first time after relocating to Canada a few years earlier. I had been to Paris many times before, and its one of those cities Ive come to love. Now that...
