I've been to shoot in this amazing place and would love to visit again! If someon's going to look for a wedding photographer in Bagan, Myanmar - I hope they bump into my work and like it enough to have me over there again!

As we roamed through narrow sand covered pathways, we could feel the cold settling in our bones. There's a distant noise of huge vents blowing air into the balloons, soon ready to set off in the air over endless Bagan fields covered with pagodas. As soon as first sun rays stretch over the sky, numerous balloons are airborne leaving a view to die for. More of this beautiful story with Hilary and Mike getting lost in Bagan with me can be found on my website today:

There's this certain smell of the misty air when you climb up the pagoda to feel the sun on your face. And not just any sun. Barefoot and freezing at five in the morning, you squeeze in with someone you love to witness on the most spectacular sunrise of them all. Bagan is a truly magical place. It combines rich history and natural beauty with kind and wonderful people. I was off to Singapore in January and wanted to re-visit Myanmar while there. And luckily Leana from The Wedding Scoop noticed and reached out. Her friend Hilary is getting married soon and wanted to do an engagement shoot in Sydney, but since they both work in Myanmar, Bagan idea hit the spot! Paired up with a dress from Monique Lhullier Hilary and Mike joined me for an adventure. Soon enough we took these shots with a little help from Balloons over bagan flying overhead. Link to this amazing story in the first comment!

No one wants to read bad content. This is the reason why I struggle to keep these texts that follow up with my images engaging as well. With rolling to-do lists and daily errands (yes, photographers actually work full time), writing doesn’t always come naturally to me. But when the content is worth sharing, there’s usually a story behind it as well. Meet Hilary and Mike. Two amazing (and beautiful) people who I had a pleasure to photograph in Bagan, Myanmar last month. And guess what…their story is ready. It’s just not up there yet, but it will be in about 6hrs. So you better go and get it!* 

*includes hot air balloons, beautiful light, lots of happiness, love, landscapes, dirt&dust and a couple of tears. All the ingredients needed for a perfect story. Check up my web in 5hrs 59min for more.

Whenever I tell stories I’m focused on the layers. Just as every person has layers, so does every place on the planet. Some of them run deep, others are really shallow. But one thing is for certain: in order to tell a story the right way, you need to start peeling. To some of you this might sound funny, but the fact is - there is no better way to transfer feelings, smells, sun rays or dust to images than to scrub off that superficial, touristy layer of a place and dig a little deeper. The reason I’m saying this is - in order to stay inspired and my our toes, I realised I need variety. I’m lucky enough to shoot all over the globe at this point of my career, and it’s proven essential to my approach. I believe few of us can stay inspired in the same place numerous times. Picture a painter painting the same landscape over and over again. Sure, it changes with seasons, but in fact it's hard and challenging. I’m not finished with Bagan, so I'll keep this post as an open invitation to anyone interested - get in touch. Hilary&Mike joined me there for their engagement shoot to witness the most amazing sunrise on this planet. Thanks to The wedding scoop for Monique Lhuillier the support! Dress by for helping out with everything! Full post online tomorrow, follow up!

New story on my website today!

In the past few months I realised how globalised our personal tastes have become. While exchanging emails with my new friend from Together Journal I came to a defeating conclusion. Most of us chase intangible goals through our computer screens. And by doing so we're missing out on real joy in life. The journey itself. Tangible things, like spending time reading her magazine or a favourite book, are what makes all the difference in the world. Having a moment for yourself should be a rule, not the exception. Nobody is born with a voice or a taste. We grow into it. It's a sum of our exposure to various art and experiences. Find out what it is that triggers your soul, filter it and get closer. Like Walter did on this image. He was waiting on his Jenny to have their first dance. There's a moment for himself with nobody around. Soaking life in, having an outer perspective, enjoying living without distractions and simply - being yourself. Meet Walter. This image describes my perception of his personality perfectly! This is what it's all about in life.

We’re spoiling our (potential) clients with wrong sets of expectations. Often stating a delivery of hundreds of photos, book pages or hours, desperately trying to numerically express our value to gain their interest while trying to book their wedding. It’s wrong. Art has no numerical value and can’t be compared. It’s absolutely subjectively perceived. Our work can, at the same time, be perceived as the best to some and as the worst to others. Numbers aren’t important in this story. We have to add meaning to the images we produce. Having wonderful shot is one thing. Having meaningful image is another. Having both is really special. Here’s a beautiful shot of Hilary&Mike who woke up really early to have a photoshoot with me in Myanmar. Being themselves, wearing flip flops along the way, having a good time and making new friends. More to come in the following days!
