I’m continuing to work on my many projects here in Sumatra and Our Urth is just one of those. This is a new conservation minded clothing brand made in Sumatra to help fund our conservation efforts through our NGO Berdiri.
I’m working on getting back into the groove of creating videos and films and telling stories again. After all that was my original plan. I have so many simultaneous projects on the go here in Sumatra and it would be a literal crime if I did not share the journey I am taking trying to fulfil these projects, from the day to day challenges and the travel and of course the incredible culture I am surrounded by here in Indonesia. Unfortunately I have allowed a few distractions to get in the way of that plan and fall into a funk, […]
I’ve been exploring Sumatra for four years. Traversing the landscapes and photographing the wildlife, nature and culture that sums up the beauty of Sumatra. But I’m on a new exploration in the Indian ocean now and have a new meikon housing to go with my a6000. It sure did the job and it wasn’t difficult to get the hang of it. I found Nemo and his family only 20 meters in from the beach, the very beach I now call my own in the remote Indian ocean. So in actual fact this is technically my back yard. Not a bad […]
I’ve been so busy project wise that I haven’t been able to update or add new available prints online for a while. Time to make the updates. I have added 5 new prints to my Indonesian canvas prints shop. Indonesia is a spectacularly beautiful place and i’m happy to be able to bring it to you through my eyes and now you have the opportunity to have prints available on your wall in your home or office. Click on the images below for size options or head directly to my online shop here.
The tours have a limit of 10 people so get in while the spots last. Here is the initial list of workshops within Indonesia and the Philippines, with the possibility of adding more in the coming weeks before the end of the new year. With south east Asia being so accessible these days it’s the perfect time to mix a holiday with a photography learning experience.

I’m always on the go these days and if i’m not working with the elephants of Sumatra i’m usually fulfilling another personal photography project or even new conservation project. My latest chapter to being is some new adventures on the Indian Ocean exploring the beautiful Enggano Island and the surrounding islands. It’s a truly beautiful part of the world and I will be a more regular visitor now the family has invested in a small slice of this paradise.
I’m fighting off leg infections I picked up exploring the remote Enggano Island, but that didn’t stop me from a day touring the area of Kepahiang about 1.5 hours from Bengkulu. It truly is a beautiful spot. A little bit of water has upset my infection and I am back on antibiotics but I think it was worth it :).
It’s been more than three years since I made a move to Indonesia and as this move was never really planned to be permanent I haven’t really spoken officially about it. A lot has happened in the past three years. More then I could have ever imagined. It’s amazing what happens to your life when you step outside your comfort zone and walk into the unknown not knowing anything about the outcome. Takes courage but we all have it inside us, we just have to trust ourselves and take the step. I relish those moments as that to me is […]
I have been wanting to tackle the Philippines for 5 years now. Atleast that was my plan before my life changed and I ended up in Sumatra. But the beauty of it now is I am based in south east Asia and getting to and from these amazing countries and cultures has now become less of a hurdle. This is my first foray into the Philippines and it is honestly the first of many and also my first trip taking the drone abroad. What a great combination for my landscape photography to have a drone to capture the new perspectives. […]
Only a 40 minute flight from Bengkulu by light plane and you will find the island paradise of Enggano Island with two beautiful neighbouring islands of Pulau Dua and Pulau Marbau as well. These two islands are simply stunning to visit and the remoteness of the location means we had this paradise to ourselves. It’s been my goal for a while to come back and photograph the beauty of this place with the drone and I finally managed to do it and the weather did not disappoint either. I’ve decided that I want to create a specialised project by focusing […]
