Hello to 2014 and welcome to the first blog post of the new year.
This year is looking like its going to be an incredible life adventure, but before 2014 gets in to full flow a quick look back at the last amazing adventure of 2013.
Before christmas I had the incredible opportunity to be invited along by Antony Turner (Antony Turner Photography) to second shoot a huge 3 day wedding in Goa, India with him. This wedding was an amazing event which I will hopefully be able to share with everyone soon, but in the mean while I thought I would share a few of the travel photographs I shot while we were out on our adventure in Goa. We managed to visit Baradi Church, Cabo De Rama, Agonda Beach, Palolem Beach, Shanta Durga Temple, Mangueshi Temple, Old Goa, Panjim and the one of a kind abandoned Hotel (Hotel Seema) which we found in Agonda. Goa was such an amazing place with so much vibrancy and colour I didn’t know what to shoot first, from the temples to the markets and the churches to the epic beaches, it was all jaw dropping.
This was such an amazing experience and also the perfect chance to test out my new Fuji x100s camera (which I took out on most of our adventures, except the abandoned hotel), which for the record was a beauty to shoot with and being more than half the size and weight of my 5DmrkIII it was the perfect for street photography. The only thing I would add, as a bit of a note to self, is to recharge the batteries before you go anywhere and don’t trust the battery read out on the screen! half full is not half full!
