Sailing Tuamotus – A French Polynesia Travel Video

After some long hours of editing in front of the computer screen, I present my newest experiment into film making. Please enjoy a true glimpse into paradise. The video was filmed while sailing across the extremely remote Tuamotus atolls. Exploring French Polynesia has certainly been an all-time favorite destination for me so far!

Tua-Lisa

For nearly four weeks I was able to join the voyage of Tua-Lisa. Maria and Modris welcomed me warmly aboard their cozy boat. Since departing from Stockholm about 2,5 years ago they have sailed their vessel through northern Europe, across the Atlantic to Brazil and then all the way around the southern end of the continent before crossing the Pacific from Chile to the Marquesas. Together with their Chilean stray dog Preta, we got to explore the beautiful island of Tahuata.

Infinite Blue

Blue as far as the eye can see. Crossing the Pacific Ocean from the Americas towards French Polynesia is the longest blue-water passage in the world. Over 5000 kilometers of deep sea without the tiniest bit of land in-between lay ahead of me. My shutter-finger is itching for the remote lush landscapes that await me at our destination.

Shaken and stirred

As desiccated Cedros Island disappears behind our stern, we’re about to make our first substantial mistakes on this trip. Although the sun is already low on the horizon and the darkness of the night about to creep in, we decide to press on to reach Turtle Bay about 28 Nautical Miles from our present position…

A Photographer goes Sailing

We’re gliding across the Sea of Cortez at a slow but comfortable pace. Deep azure waters surround us in every direction. While the spinnaker is pulling the boat gently on a downwind run, the only noise we hear is the occasional flapping of the massive sail in light winds. Tender swells seem to carry us on a cloud of fluffy cotton as we approach our last port in Mexico. But the sea hasn’t always been so kind to us since we departed the United States.

Kauri Park – The magical powers of high-visibility vests

The second part of this project takes us out of the nursery and around the North Island of New Zealand with the objective of capturing some of Kauri Park’s massive planting projects throughout the country. Apart from a road trip with great company, I got to take pictures strapped to a helicopter and visited New Zealand’s most classy golf course. Along the way an orange high-visibility vest became my greatest wild card …

Kauri Park – A comeback in photography

It’s been almost one year since my last post … Oh boy! Where to start? I’m sorry. I really am. I shouldn’t have kept you waiting for so long. But while I had to put my trip on hold for a bit, there wasn’t too much to speak about really. In order to deliver new exciting footage for you in the near future, I’ve been working for New Zealand’s biggest native plant nursery for the last seven month. Recently I was able to make my comeback from nursery worker to freelance photographer. I’m glad to present the following series to you. Welcome to Kauri Park!

One more from the road

The last voyage in our beloved ‘Dinkie’ leads us around the legendary South Island of New Zealand. Breathtaking mountain scenery, gorgeous empty stretches of coastline, starry nights and hordes of sandflies make this trip unforgettable. With heaps of new images in my portfolio, these were some of the most productive weeks in a while!

En route – A trip with my parents

For the first time in my travels, my parents were able to come over and join me on a trip of four weeks. I enjoyed having them here, especially after 16 months of not seeing each other. It’s the same amount of time that I stayed away from home on my first big journey overseas. Only this time round there is no end in sight…

Short Stories

Arriving to New Zealand, buying a new home on wheels, first explorations of the North Island and a job in an exciting local company have taken a toll on this blog. But finally I’m free again to chase the most beautiful skylines, landscapes and animals while telling you about how I got to photograph them. Here is what happened since Hawaii in four short stories!
