Bags packed

Fuji X-Pro1 + Zeiss Touit 12mm/2.8 @ f/4 ISO 400 1/340s

Like the song goes, all my bags are packed and I'm ready to go. I have a routine when I go on a photography trip as far as packing is concerned – check passport validity (you'll be surprised how […]


A few more days to my Siem Reap photosafari

_DSF0226 copy copy

That will be from October 12th-16th. I will be there a day earlier in preparation for the participants to have a fun and fruitful time. All the participants have gone through a 2-day intensive course on my post-processing workflow. Now they will have a first-hand experience on how I go about getting my type […]


Photosafaris to Bali, Siem Reap and Bagan (Myanmar)

I’m pleased to announce the photosafaris for the rest of the year. There will be two big changes over the usual photosafaris I used to organize. Firstly, I’ll have 2 days of intensive post-processing sessions at a convenient date prior to the respective photosafaris. Those who have signed up for the photosafaris […]


One morning in Bali

Whenever I have photosafaris I generally prefer to shoot in the early mornings and late evenings when lighting is amazing for photography – I like the warmth and the interesting shadows cast during this hours of sunlight. Allow me to share with you some shots taken in the morning during my recent Bali photosafari.


The Bali Photosafari – September 5th-9th, 2012

Another fun and enjoyable Bali photosafari! This time was very different from previous ones – we had very different shooting opportunities and we stayed in one of the best villas in Ubud, the Tepi Sawah Villa. The format however was the same where we shot during the day and had post-processing sessions at night. The […]


Semporna, what a lovely place!

I have always wanted to go to this place after […]


Bali, here I come!

I have planned an interesting program for this safari. If anyone of you is […]


Hanoi-Bac Ha-Sapa photosafari Part 3

This is the final installment of this photosafari – to Sapa town. All shots were taken with the Nikon D800 unless stated otherwise.

We left Bac Ha town after lunch that Sunday afternoon. On our way up the hills we dropped by Ta Phin village, a village for the Red Hmong tribes.

A […]


Hanoi-Bac Ha-Sapa photosafari Part 2…continuation

Last 2 weeks were eventful ones for me – I changed the most important lenses of my life i.e. I finally had my cataracts removed and have them replaced with monocular lenses. Suddenly the whole world brightened up before me and I (presently) do not need glasses, not even reading ones. I may be exaggerating […]
