I travel, a lot it feels like sometimes. For work and pleasure my adventures span the globe. I’ve shot a documentary on a tiny island in the Indian Ocean, attended the biggest film festival and tradeshow in the world in France and snowboard every year in the Swiss Alps. Here’s a few select photographs I took. I’m not a spectacular photographer but I enjoy it. I’m using a Sony a7sii as my main camera or just my iPhone if that’s all I have with me. You’ll see way too many pictures of my dog if you follow me on Instagram.
