Torre de Palma Monforte

Monforte | Alentejo

Last summer we spent some time in Monforte in the Alentejo, where we discovered the beautiful Torre de Palma Wine Hotel a short drive from the town. This is a stunning part of the Alentejo and an area that I hadn´t yet explored… it´s a bit off the beaten track but well worth a visit.

Food Photographer Lisbon Portugal

Taqueria Pistola y Corazon

A few weeks before we embarked on our crazy European road trip (and my access to the internet was reduced practically nothing) I was contacted by a Taqueria Pistola y Corazon, a Mexican restaurant in Lisbon, to shoot some images for their site and branding. I loved this place, their food is SO GOOD and unlike a lot of “Mexican restaurants” that aren´t in Mexico, their food is the real thing… the best I´ve had since I was last in Mexico… which was a very long time ago. These are a few of my favourite images from 2 days spent…

The Van Voyagers – on the road

For those of you who follow me on Instagram, you will already know about our latest (and so far, greatest) adventure… we are currently travelling though Europe in a camper van. We are planning on being on the road until the end of the year and will be visiting Spain, France, Italy, Slovenia, Croatia, Romania, Greece and possibly a few other spots, if we have the time (and/or the budget) and depending on the recommendations we get while on the road. We have been planning and dreaming and saving hard for this trip for almost 3 years and are super excited…

Nazaré | Portugal

A few images from a trip up the west coast to the fishing town of Nazaré, famous for big wave surfing and bad-ass old ladies who wear loads of skirts (all at the same time). I didn´t get any photos of the ladies, but next time I will.

Alcaçovas Alentejo

Alcaçovas | Alentejo

Most of my husband´s family is from the Alentejo and half of them still live out there, in various towns scattered across the countryside. This works out perfectly as we are always visiting one house or the other and the Alentejo just so happens to be my favourite part of Portugal. This is Alcaçovas, where we spend our Easters.

Travel Photographer Cape Town

Mr Hudson | Cape Town City Guide

Mr Hudson is a recently launched travel blog and I am very excited to be on board as one of their contributing writers/photographers. I recently wrote and photographed a Cape Town Travel Guide for them, see the full article HERE, as well as my other contributions.

Berlenga Islands Peniche

Berlenga Island | Peniche

Last summer we hopped on a ferry boat in the fishing town of Peniche to spend the day on Berlenga island, off the west coast of Portugal. The Berlenga archipelago is a nature reserve so the “human footprint” is quite limited… apart from a few houses at the harbour, the lighthouse and the fort, there isn´t much here apart from seagulls and clear blue seas. We only spend the day but I loved the wildness of this place and would definitely like to come back and spend a few days here.

Tiny Atlas Quarterly Travel Photography

Tiny Atlas Quarterly | West Coast

Tiny Atlas Quarterly is one of my very favourite online travel magazines and I´ve been a fan since they published the first issue in 2013, so it goes without saying that I am very stoked to have one of my images on the cover of their latest, the West Coast issue. Apart from their inspiring imagery and creative layout, what I love about TAQ is that it´s a labour of love, a personal project started by Californian photographer Emily Nathan, that has grown exponentially since it launched a few years back. What started out as a space for creative collaborations and…

Juncais - Serra da Estrela

Juncais | Serra da Estrela

Being a freelancer and  working from home has it´s pro´s and con´s, like everything else in life. Pro´s include being able to work when the inspiration strikes, whether it´s during the “real world work hours” or at 3am and conversely, being able to take time off on a Tuesday afternoon because the weather is great and you´d really just like to be on the beach right now. It also means that you can spend the entire day in your pyjamas which may or may not be a good thing… I´m on the fence about that one. The crappy part, however,…

Porto Portugal

Porto | Portugal

Every time we visit Porto I fall a bit more in love with this quirky little city. It´s different from Lisbon, in spite of still feeling Portuguese it´s almost as though you´re in another country. It´s a small, compact city, which is great because you can abandon your car and head everywhere on foot and there are so many cute little corners and tiny shops to be discovered, it´s always such a treat to spend a few days here.
