Lonely Planet - Brač, Croatia
I have travelled around Croatian islands in the past, in the south, but this was a first trip to the island of Brač, which sits above the arguable more famous Hvar. An ancient limestone island with Roman history, bustling with boutique hotels and home of the famously instagrammable Zlatni Rat Beach.
Lonely Planet - Finland
Visiting Helsinki was a first for me, I really liked the city. It’s easy to get about this smaller, compact European city, but there’s lots to explore. The key to happiness and the motto of the Fins seemed to be a good work // life balance, and just “keep it simple”. After the city we headed to the far north into the arctic circle to discover some summer-time activities … in the rain.
TUI - Menorca
Great to be working with the team at TUI again, this time in Menorca, Spain. A new set of hotels with a different atmosphere. The busy hotels make it challenging but quite fun working out the spaces and the angles.
Lonely Planet - Salzburg, Austria
I recently travelled to Salzburg, Austria, loosely to mark the 55th anniversary of the Sound of Music but also as it’s a beautiful, small city to showcase. Walking tours, puppet shows (that’s Maria Von Trapp) and, naturally, beer gardens all on the agenda. Feature to be released soon in the October issue of Lonely Planet Magazine.
TUI Group - Tunisia
I was recently commissioned by TUI Group to photograph for brand in Tunisia, shooting at one of their Sensimar (Adults only) hotels. There was a range of areas to focus on in the brief, mixing hotel interiors and more still life setups gave the shoot a really nice feel and good diversity.
Lonely Planet - Mauritius
I had a very nice commission recently, spending a week in the tropics of Mauritius. The trip featured climbing mountains (third highest in Mauritius at 812m), beautiful hotel visits and a great opportunity for some drone shots for new perspectives - I was really happy with the results.
At the top of Le Pouce mountain we had the company of this little guy, a monkey who took great interest in trying to get the snacks in my camera bag. Fortunately he had no fear and it was fun to get some up close and personal shots
A departure from beaches and sand, snow mountaineering ! I just shot a days hike to the Tre Cime (Three Peaks) in the Dolomites. A long and exhausting day, but absolutely worth it ... with light all day long. See more here.
In December I went to Mexico for the first time, to the Yucatan peninsular. A particular highlight was Isla Holbox, a large nature reserve in the north. It’s becoming an increasingly popular destination to include in any trip to the region.
And of course no trip to Yucatan is complete without a swim in a cenote; a natural underground ‘cave-pool’. See more here.
Sanctuary Retreats - Egypt
I recently travelled to Egypt for Sanctuary Retreats, shooting promotional for their Nile Cruise packages. Travelling between Aswan and Luxor on Sun Boat IV we shot a variety of interiors, experiences and excursions available.

Audi Magazine - Tel Aviv
Commissioned by Northstar publishing for the Audi customer magazine, I shot a feature in Tel Aviv about the (relatively) booming popularity of veganism. A week spent exploring different areas of the city, particularly the bustling promenade. Very pleased to feature on the cover of the magazine too.
Sunday Times Travel Magazine - Istanbul
Istanbul is one of my favourite cities to visit and photograph; I always get carried away shooting on and around the Galata Bridge. Before this I was there over a bitterly cold winter; this time the height of summer. I visited new areas around Balat distrcit as well as some familiar sights which always promise great shots …
Lonely Planet Magazine - Sri Lanka
This is the second time i’ve been to Sri Lanka, and I loved it as much as the first time i visited. I headed to the lesser-travelled northern province to the city of Jaffna, stopping along the way at the hugely impressive temples at Anuradhapura and Mihintale.
Lonely Planet has named Sri Lanka as the top destination of 2019 so it was great to feature on the cover.
Lonely Planet Magazine - Tokyo
Tokyo is a city like no other i’ve been to, and it’s brilliant. This was my second time there and I spent 8 days moving around the city seeking out the weird and wonderful, and often uniquely Japanese, and had a fantastic time. Robot restaurants, cat temples, maid cafe’s … Godzillas on rooftops.
Sunday Times Travel - Ireland
For some reason I had never made it to Ireland, until now. Shooting for Sunday Times, it was a great introduction driving the Wild Atlantic Way, 2,500km along the west coast. It has so many dramatic highlights, like the Cliffs of Moher and Slieve League, but my absolute favourite was and the end of the Dingle peninsula. These 3 images were taken about 1km apart, a moment where nature largely did my job for me; the light, landscape and weather was phenomenal.
