Exhibition at Dimbola museum and galleries

Last week we visited the Island of Wight for a very special occasion.
I was one of the jurors for the “photographer of the year” awards, but I also was there to open a solo exhibition in the Dimbola Museum and Galleries about my work.


It’s always an honor to have an exhibition but this one is very special because it’s my first UK exhibition and also the first one in a place like this. As you all know I’m a huge Queen fan and it makes it extra special that Brian May was one of the exhibitors in 2011 in the same museum with his stereo photography. Other names include Paul Armfield, Carinthia West, Norman Parkinson, Chris Gabrin, James Dore, Larry Ellis, Ken Russell, Mary Weinberger, Nurit Yardeni, Patti Smith, Man Ray, David Bailey etc.
As you can see an impressive list and I’m more than honored to be part of that list as you can imagine.

Some information about Dimbola :
Dimbola Lodge was the home of the celebrated Victorian photographer Julia Margaret Cameron. It is now a Museum and Gallery dedicated to her life and work, which also showcases contemporary exhibitions from photographers around the globe.


Some the images shot during the opening and just before.

Brighton pier

Today some images I shot on the Brighton pier while driving back home from the Isle of Wight.
Now always remember that these posts are done to show you guys just some of the sights we visit. While traveling we mostly have just a few minutes or maybe an hour to visit something so I don’t have the luxury to wait for the perfect moment…


So just enjoy them as they are 😀

Don’t take it too easy

We all know that photography is taking pictures…. However is it just that or is there more….
Well when a blogpost starts like this there is of course more, right…
During our travels we often also visit landmarks and to be honest I always find these challenging, not to shoot them but to create something that hasn’t been done before, because let’s be honest everything has been done once or twice at least. As soon you realize that one burden is actually lifted… pff we don’t have to be unique…. but at least lets try to do it slightly different.


The easiest shot is always from the what I call “Kodak point”, you can find these at some sights and the only thing you have to do is point your camera in the “general” direction and shoot, and in all honestly you’ll end up with a good shot of the landmark…. but if you try to move around, zoom in, shoot from a very low or very high angle, shoot it with an extreme wide-angle or even fish eye you will actually get something totally different. You could even use your “selfie-stick” to get some stunning shots that you would normally not get (so we finally found a good use for that stick).
In the end it’s all about one thing…
As a photographer it’s not enough to just see the landmark, treat like you would treat a model…. and ok it doesn’t listen and you can’t pose it, but you can still wait for the light, change your own position, zoom in to show details or leading lines, add something in the frame to make it funny, or weird… when you think about it the options are limitless.


Even from the “kodak point”.
