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 […]

Norway

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 is located in the south of Spain, east of the Atlantic Ocean and north of the Mediterranean Sea and the Strait of Gibraltar.

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

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 […]

Wild Horses (Hearth Magazine)

We live close to the sea on the very southern tip of Ireland. The weather here is usually rough, winter storms make for a wild sea and unpredictable weather from November to February. It’s usually dark and gloomy and very often rainy and foggy. It’s also a very quiet time of the year. It’s the […]

The Absence of Fear

»I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it. The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.« Nelson Mandela I’m not a brave man. And I’m usually not very much into New Year’s resolutions either. This year I wanted to […]
