California Dreaming

Our road trip through the United States ended with a drive along the west coast, visiting both Los Angeles and San Francisco for a few days. I was really astounded by the drive through Santa Ynez Valley, a part of California that is world famous for being the set for many movies. The rolling hills […]

Sierra Nevada

As I had mentioned in my last blog post about Death Valley, we had planned on a longer break from traveling during the summer months and enjoyed a quiet time in our home in Ireland this year, followed by a trip to New York City in September. That was a long break and I’m really […]

Death Valley

I still remember the day when my friend Elan Cohen from Richard Photo Lab asked me if I would like to attend WPPI this year and do an interview at their booth. I felt incredibly humbled and excited, and I instantly jumped on the opportunity. I couldn’t wait to meet their team in person and […]

A Winter in Maine

For Christmas and New Year my wife Rebecca and I traveled to New England in the United States to spend time with our family. We were really looking forward to experiencing a real winter again after so many years in Ireland without snow and ice. We didn’t know much about the area before we left […]

Visiting Norway earlier this year as part of our six week trip through Europe was one of the most beautiful stops of our journey. Rebecca and I flew to Oslo and met up with our friend Atle Ronningen, who showed us around the city before treating us to a wonderful dinner in one of the […]

Andalusia (Hearth Magazine)

Andalusia is located in the south of Spain, east of the Atlantic Ocean and north of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar. Being at the very southern tip of Europe and only an hour away from Africa, Andalusia has a very interesting mix of European, African and Arabian influences. You see traditional Spanish […]

Metering for Film

The most common questions I receive in regards to shooting film are usually about metering and exposure. I have covered a lot of other topics in the blog posts Film is not dead and The secrets of Richard Photo Lab, but I wanted to share a dedicated write-up about metering as this subject often seems […]

A perfect Sunday

A perfect Sunday

Sunday is my favorite day of the week. I love the mood of slow days at home, ideally started with a delicious breakfast and a good conversation with my wife. Maybe followed by listening to music, reading a book or taking pictures together. Something I also wouldn’t want to miss on a Sunday is a […]

This was our first trip to London together and we really enjoyed every minute […]
