  1. The Mother City

    20 Feb 2017

    I’ve worked in over 50 countries on every inhabited continent in the world. The journey has taken me about 8 years to complete and has led to countless of unforgettable adventures and experiences. Despite having seen most of the world’s most popular attractions, I was never able to name my…

  2. Edinburgh Guide

    20 Mar 2016

    Every time I visit Edinburgh, I consider moving there. It’s a magical city, one of Europe’s finest, so it was extremely gratifying seeing Expedia publish the guide that I filmed for them below I’ve also included some of my favourite images from the shoot.

  3. Geothermal Wonderland

    21 Dec 2015

    After experiencing some of New Zealand’s most beautiful beaches, it was a refreshing change to experience the inland wonders - in this case, the geothermal activity of Rotorua and Taupo.  These two lakeside locations are about an hour apart, with geothermal attractions covering the area between them. After visiting Iceland,…

  4. Iceland Guide

    09 Dec 2015

    The worst question to ask a frequent traveler is “what is the best place you’ve been to?” I can’t possibly answer “best”, but I can tell you what the most picturesque country is - Iceland.  I visited Iceland for the 3rd time in June, 2015 to shoot a guide for…

  5. The Coromandel Peninsula

    28 Nov 2015

    I’ve seen coastlines on 5 different continents. Up until now, I’ve been convinced that the Wildcoast region of South Africa is untouchable as best coastline in the world. As a former Saffa, I’m a bit dissapointed to admit that it has been bumped down into second. The Coromandel Peninsula now…

  6. Whangarei

    23 Nov 2015

    I’m going to leave the North Island of New Zealand with one major, unexpected impression - that of picture perfect beaches. The kind of beaches you expect to find on famous beach islands, like the Maldives.  If empty, perfect beaches appeal to you, the area around Whangarei in the Northland…

  7. Auckland

    21 Nov 2015

    Twenty five hours is a long time to fly. It is even longer when you have two under 3s with you! To recover, we booked 3 days in Auckland. Whilst we weren’t there to do photography, I couldn’t help spending a few hours shooting.

  8. The Czech Republic

    05 Jul 2015

    When the former Soviet countries opened up to the west, Prague was the first city to be recognized as a world class destination. Since then, tourists have been thronging its streets. What many of them don’t realize is that the rest of the country is just as interesting and beautiful…

  9. Iceland - the North

    25 Jun 2015

    In the second leg of my Iceland trip (part 1 here), I explored the north east of the country. This area is less pretty but more dramatic than the more popular southern end of the island. For this reason, it is extremely popular for film sets. Akureyri, the main city…

  10. Gdansk

    25 Apr 2015

     Gdansk was the last city I visited as part of my Poland trip for Expedia and what a great way to end! Gdansk is an interesting mix of Amsterdam and Brugge with a slight Swedish influence on the architecture. It is a fascinating city, rich in stories, both ancient and…

  11. Poznan

    23 Apr 2015

    Poznan was the fourth Polish city I visited for Expedia after Warsaw, Krakow and Wroclaw. Unfortunately, I only had a short time to explore the city (half a day), but the time was enough to convince me that Poznan is a world class city, well worth visiting Interior of the…

  12. Wroclaw

    22 Apr 2015

    The Bishop’s Palace on Cathedral Island. Cathedral Island as viewed from the Cathedral Tower. The main bridge leading to Cathedral Island.  The bridge still has bullet holes from WWII. Students enjoying the view of the university from Student Island. There are hundreds of these gnomes spread throughout the city. The…

  13. Warsaw

    19 Apr 2015

    Poland has some great, trendy options for eating out. This was one of the first suspension bridges in Poland and featured in many of the rom coms made in Poland. The National Stadium, built for the Euro tournament. The public transport system is excellent in Warsaw. Most of the museums…

  14. In Retrospect

    05 Aug 2014

    For the first time since February, I’ve got a few days off. It’s basically half way through the year, so I picked out some of my favourite images since February. I try do this as often as possible as it make it shows me where I need to improve and…

  15. Bologna - Authentic Italy

    28 Jun 2014

    I had a spare couple of hours in Bologna, so I decided to walk around with my camera without any ideas of what and how I should photograph. One of the features of Bologna that I’ve loved is how full the old town is of locals, living, working and enjoying…

  16. Switzerland - Geneva

    09 Jun 2014

    I’ve spent a couple of days in Geneva, enjoying the Swiss, summer sun. What impresses me most about Geneva is how much the locals seem to enjoy outdoor life. Whether its an outdoor picnic at night along the banks of the lake or a long distance swim, everyone seems to…
