Photo documenting your love-life’s moments is not just for Valentine’s day, engagement, or anniversary – however, it’s often when people remind themselves about how lucky they are to have found their loved one.

Lifestyle building with mini habits – and how to beat your internal resistance

Posted on January 31st, 2018

I hope everyone had a good start of the new year. Since it’s the last day of January, I dare asking how are all your new year’s resolutions going? This time last year, I had a bullet-pointed list of things to do for the year ahead. As far as tasks, responsibilities are concerned, we’re all busy making sure that the expectations are met, while we forget about our lifestyle changing promises. To get in shape, to stop procrastinating, to quit smoking or get more sleep… you know your shortcomings. Looking […]

I just came back from giving a talk to Stylist Live on how to take the best travel photos with your phone.

You can read my answer to this, along with other tips featured on the magazine website: http://bit.ly/best_travel_photos_with_phone Remember, learning about your camera is the best investment you can make before your travel.

Tips for Taking Great Smartphone Photos of Plants

Posted on August 30th, 2016

Even though I consider myself an urban photographer, I recently found myself obtaining a great deal of pleasure from photographing plants. I’ve been fascinated by plants for as long as I remember, but this has grown on to a whole different level when I got my own place and started buying tropical looking plants for decoration. As a visitor, I’ve always found botanic gardens and parks very therapeutic to explore. They also provide an opportunity to photograph the versatile textures and colourful details of our green environment. Luckily, since the [...]







Posting now regularly

Posted on March 31st, 2016

It’s the end of month, so here I come again with a new post. Let me stop you right here, as I just can’t help thinking about this ‘end of month – new post’ thing, and how it developed in the first place. It’s funny how significant we can get about deadlines, but there is more to why I post at the end of each month than just a ‘dead’ line. I’m sure you figured it out already that you’re not reading yet another avid blogger’s site, but a photographer’s website, which explains [...]

Looking back on 2015

Posted on December 31st, 2015

Recently I’ve been trying to buy my own slice of London pie. Whilst wading through loads of viewings, I came across some shocking places, while the nice properties were snapped up at a mind-boggling pace. New apartments are springing up in London all the time. Sometimes I wonder who these new homes will go to and how they will add to the great story that is London. What are the key driving points for people when choosing their location? London’s alluring features have created this city’s infamous property market. This [...]







If you could buy a better habit, how much would you spend on it?

Posted on November 3rd, 2015

I want to share a story that inspired me to break a bad habit recently. I was sixteen when I first visited UK and I remember a conversation with a family friend telling his story about how he quit smoking. He was a smoker for fifteen years and like many other smokers, he tried various ways with little to no success to give up smoking. One day he heard of a local course that was advertised for smokers to help them quit with fairly high success rates, running over six [...]
