Passeite | Organic olive oil in Portugal

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…

Table Magazine – Vol 4

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.

Flydoscope for Luxembourg Air Summer 2019 | Travel Photographer Lisbon

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…

Lisbon | Portugal

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

Quinta de Sant´Ana

These images are the culmination of a year long project documenting the day to day activities of the Quinta de Sant`Ana, a wine estate just north of Lisbon. The idea of the project was to capture the year of a wine farm, following the seasons and recording all the elements that influence the time-line of small scale wine production. The quinta recently updated their website with some of these images, which you can see in the screen-grabs above. And the photos below are some of my favourites from the year long project… as well as a “behind the scenes” shot…

Ilha do Farol Algarve Portugal

Ilha do Farol | Algarve

The Ilha do Farol is probably one of my favourite places in the Algarve, at least from what I´ve seen so far. This southern stretch of Portugal has unfortunately (but quite deservedly) made a bit of a reputation for itself as being cheap, trashy and full of drunk Brits on holidays… you don´t need to spend more than 5 minutes in Albufeira to know what I´m talking about. (Quick tip… don´t ever, ever go to Albufeira.) But the Ilha do Farol is none of these things… this long thin island off the coast of Olhão is only accessible by boat…
