- This photo was taken atop Padar Island in Indonesia. I was fortunate enough to be invited by Tourism Indonesia to visit as a state guest to capture their country through my own interpretation of how I view their beautiful country. Obtaining this photo was not an easy feat as we had to speed boat 3 hours from land to the island, followed by a small dinghy bringing us to shore, and a hike up a dirt/rock covered track (kudos to my model for doing so with a dress!) all whilst chasing the sunset light to reach the top.
- After ascending the top of the Rinjani Vulcano on the island of Lombok, Indonesia I got sick. After two days of struggling my way down from the top I reached this point and finally took my camera again to make this shot. Before I didn’t have the will to take my cam out but this landscape had to be photographed in between throwing up and struggling my way down.
- Gili Trawangan is one of three islands in the Gili archipelago. What makes this island unique is that it is completely surrounded by white sand beaches, and no motorized vehicles. Residences either walk or bike to get around the island. This leaves one question, where is the best place to find no one watching the sunset over Mt. Agung on Bali Island? The answer is to make your way clockwise from the main port of the island along the main road and right before your approach the resorts and hotels on the west side there is a stretch of beach where few people stop.
- Can anyone spot the cabin on the cliff? Hell of a place to build a house! This photo is taken from a small cliffside near Ramuh Pohon treehouse. Woke up at 4am to do the 1 hour drive across Nusa Penida to catch the sun rise. This is the view of Atuh Beach from above. We keep seeing photos of a naked cliff even though there are definitely guard rails. Not sure if it’s photoshop or it’s a slightly different cliffside a few dozen meters away. If there is such a spot, we missed it. If you go and find it, let us know!
- It’s a marvelous thing, the ocean. For some reason when two people sit together looking out at it, they stop caring whether they talk or stay silent. You get rid tired of watching it. And no matter how rough the waves get, you’re never bothered by the noise the water makes by the commotion of the surface - it never seems too loud, or too wild. More of Bali Travelogue?

- My girlfriend and I went to visit the iconic ‘Monkey Forest’ in Bali. When we arrived it was mayhem and chaos of monkeys running around, asking for attention and food. But in the middle of all the energy there was 1 monkey lying on a bench, playing and investigating a leaf. This is 4 of 4 shots where you can see how this little one investigates this leaf like he has never seen something like it before!
- Bali suffers from plastic pollution. You’ll find wrappers, bags, bottles and all others kinds of plastic wherever you go. From high up in the mountains (where the locals create piles of plastic and lit them on fire) to low in the sea. It’s a shame, since Bali is one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been. Luckily there’s still more nature than plastic. Let’s keep it that way. Or better yet: let’s ban plastic from nature. This photo makes me happy. It’s my wallpaper so I can look at it everyday. It not only reminds me of a great trip, but also to be and stay kind to mother earth.
- It had been on the list for a while. Whisked from the hotel mid-afternoon and onto a busy Balinese motorway. Unfazed local families piled up on one motorbike weaving through the traffic can be seen from the van window. We soon arrived at the temple, 40,000 IDR and a sarong tied — I entered the temple. It was a short walk through the monkey filled forest before reaching the lookout. A moment from from the edge of Uluwatu.
