Around Rabat in Morocco | Photos

A couple of weeks ago I shared some photos from Chefchaouen, an enchanting little city. We got there driving from Casablanca, during the 2017 Digital Photo Mentor Moroccan tour. It’s a long journey, but interesting, and of course we made some stops on the road, to photograph some iconic and well-known places around Rabat. The […]


Casablanca to Chefchaouen via Rabat | Photos

It was a long day of touring from Casablanca; the route was curvy, passing Rabat, some small villages, and some mountainscapes.  Our guide announced that we would make a 15-minute stop in a scenic spot. We went down, crossed the road, and there she was, perched beneath the Rif mountains, surrounded by high peaks: the […]


Jodhpur in Photos | India

The mighty fog awakens a sea of blue rooftops. It is past seven a.m., and the day-star is already high in the “Sun City.” The mist is so dense that I barely notice it, but I am having chai on the terrace of a restaurant and enjoying photographing panoramas of the city below. This is […]


Casablanca in Photos | Morocco Photo Tour

A modern city, a mythical kingdom, Casablanca is not as evocative as other cities in the country; still, for someone like me visiting the nation for the first time, it’s an essential place to explore. I was here as the co-leader of the 2017 Digital Photo Mentor Morocco Photo Tour; as such, I wanted to be here […]


Machu Picchu in Photos | Peru

Getting to the iconic Machu Picchu proved to be daunting, mainly because a regional protest around the archeological sites against privatization of the parks stranded me in Ollantaytambo for a couple of days. Parks were closed around the Sacred Valley, and the main way to get to Aguas Calientes, today renamed as Ciudad Machu Picchu, […]


New Delhi in Photos | India

Smells of powder and smoke invade the air, and firecrackers are exploding everywhere. Today is one of India’s biggest celebrations – Diwali. It’s nighttime and I am walking the streets of Delhi trying to find a place to witness and photograph some this tradition. I finally settle on a temple near to the hotel in […]


Peru with the Fuji X-T1

I am back from an almost three-week-long journey to Peru. While this was not my first time traveling and shooting the Fujifilm X system, this trip kind of served to show that I am embracing it more than ever. Although I started shooting Fuji about two years ago and I made the full switch just […]


Tuscany’s Landscape in Photos | Italy

Away from Tuscany’s historic capital and palaces, there is a land that seems to be blessed by the creator. Never mind that the central region of the Apennine Peninsula hosts a myriad of World Heritage Sites; never mind that it was the birthplace of the Renaissance. Think about a land dotted with villas surrounded by […]


A Night in Florence | Photos

The sun just sits behind the hills surrounding the historic city known as “the Cradle of the Renaissance,” turning the sky into an orange palette that perfectly contrasts with the blues of the bluff. The old town begins to glitter as the lights switch on. This is Florence, and I am one of the privileged […]


Fuji X-T1 Twins Go to Iceland 

It was a tough decision, but I finally made up my mind – after all, I am preaching “Carry Less – Photograph More: Elevate your Travel Photography” – and so, in a couple of days I’ll be jumping on a plane to Iceland with just two Fuji X-T1 bodies and Fujinon lenses. I know I […]


Halong Bay in Photos | Vietnam

A refreshing breeze coming from the Gulf of Tokin is the perfect accompaniment to the breathtaking beauty of the over two thousand limestone islands emerging from its emerald waters. This is Halong Bay and I am relaxing and enjoying myself on the top deck of a typical junk boat exploring this mythical place. Halong is […]


Switching to Mirrorless: Embracing Fujifilm X 

I am just back from a three-week trip from Vietnam and Bhutan, and although I’ve traveled with only Fuji X cameras in the past, this was the first time I totally relied on them for a long journey. Tired of carrying gear when traveling I was on the lookout for a compact camera that could […]
