I am back

I know I have been 'away' from this site for more than a month now – I just could not find the inspiration to write. This was compounded by the fact that I did not shoot much. To get back my inspiration I went back to some of my old files and found, to by […]


My photosafari plans for 2013

I actually do not have any fixed plans yet but what I am certain is that I will be going back to Semporna, Sabah.


I foresee a lot of traveling this year, mainly private photography trips, which will include Myanmar, Bali, China besides Semporna. I mentioned 'mainly private trips' […]


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!

Both for relaxation and photography. Situated in the Tawau Division, in the east coast of Sabah, Malaysia on the island of Borneo, the majority of the population are Bajau, many of whom live in sprawling stilt villages over the water on the outskirts of town.

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


Bali, here I come!

It is photosafari time again. This time I will be going to Bali from September 5th-9th in conjunction with Kuningan Day (the Balinese Divawali) celebrations. This means there will be lots of festivities and temple celebrations – lots of shooting opportunities!

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 […]


My impression of the Fuji X-Pro1

I seldom blog about my opinion on any cameras. However I must share with you my impression of the Fuji X-Pro1 simply because my search for a lighter, more compact camera has finally ended. Will this replace my ever-trustworthy Nikon D3? Unlikely. Will I use it for some serious work? You bet! […]
