Marije and Gui are a Dutch-Portuguese couple producing top quality olive oil in the Coimbra region of Portugal. We have known them for almost a decade and these two are powerhouses, always up to something new and innovative. Gui opened and runs a restaurant, Taberna do Azeite, in the old part of Coimbra (closed now thanks to COVID) that focused especially on paring olive oils with small plates of food. And Marije is the chief farming lady: planting, clearing, pruning, harvesting, pressing, bottling and packaging their organic, small batch extra virgin olive oil for their brand, Passeite. Safe to say…
I have been a big fan of Table Magazine ever since they launched their first issue a few years ago. The styling and photography is always so clean and beautiful, so it is beyond an honour to have my work published here! And it’s even sweeter because the article is an interview with my good friend and collaborator on many projects, Rute Porto, of Be Aromatic. She recently published a beautiful cookbook which I also photographed (more on that to come) and I’m proud to see her get the recognition she very much deserves.
Well hi there. Only a year and a half late, but I’m just popping in to share a feature I had in Qantas Airlines inflight magazine last year. Croatia is one of my favourite countries in the world and Dubrovnik is mindblowingly beautiful. I would go back again in a heartbeat and am thrilled to have these images published. Heres a link to the full magazine, online version.
Earlier this year I was contacted by Flydoscope Magazine to be a tourist in my “home town”… its always fun to pretend to be a foreigner (well, I kind-of am a foreigner) in a city that I know so well, a travel photographer in Lisbon for the first time. Its a challenge, actually, to see a place you know well with fresh eyes but I really enjoyed this assignment and in this digital era it´s always a thrill to see my work in print, and even more exciting that it was the cover story. Bonus points, the editor who commissioned…
Some work I did a while back for Pistola e Corazon, in Lisbon. Photos by me and illustration overlays by Marta Fea, the creative genius and co-owner of this amazing taco joint… best tacos in the city! Food Photographer Lisbon
Back in Portugal, these are a few photos of Lisbon from several different trips to the city, many of them outtakes from other assignments and some just from wandering the streets… Lisbon has a very particular light that is hard to describe but wonderful to photograph. SaveSave SaveSave
From Faial we hopped on a ferry across to Pico, named for the volcanic mountain peak that dominates the skyline and is visible from almost everywhere on the island, as well as from the neighbouring Faial and São Jorge. Pico is famous for her mountain (obviously) and also for her wine. We were ill equipped to climb mountains so made up for it by drinking a lot of wine instead. Pico is known for her wines and it is mind-blowing that the first people here even managed to get vines to grow in this harsh, windy climate and volcanic terrain….
A few months ago I spent the day in Lisbon shooting the LX Factory for Transavia´s onboard publication, Enjoy! Magazine. You can see the online edition HERE or onboard Transavia over the next few months.
Last summer we took a trip to the Azores islands, more specifically the central group that consists of Faial, Pico and São Jorge. These volcanic islands are absolutely spectacular and still relatively undiscovered… and hopefully they stay that way. Faial is a stopping point on most transatlantic sailboat voyages so in spite of it being a tiny island lost in the middle of the ocean, the vibe here is super international, with the sailing crowd from all over the world in town, fixing boats, topping up supplies and just generally taking advantage of a few days on land.

Towards the end of last year I travelled out to Évora to shoot the Albergaria do Calvario, a boutique hotel inside the walls of the old town, in the historic heart of the city. These are some of my favourite images and you can see more on their website HERE. SaveSave SaveSave
