When you get to spend 3 days with your photo superhero, your Mr. Miyagi, your Obi-wan Kenobi, aka the one and only @markmannphoto, it’s tough to wrap your head around the best part of it all. Was it when I got to take a photograph (with the most absurd piece of Leica equipment I’ve ever seen) of the amazing @markdepaolastudio (@depaolapictures) while discussing his latest work and anecdotes of the Paris fashion week? (Thank you sir for saying French people are actually nice) Was it discovering how Mark Mann is as respectful to you as he is to President @barackobama , as humble and true to himself with you than with any Oscar winner he encounters? Was it learning crazy lighting with Mark’s unbelievably knowledgeable and creative partner (@banaguns)? Working in a NYC full blown photo studio at @penumbrafoundation? Meeting a group of talented counterparts from far and wide? I soaked up every minute of it (coz let’s be honest it was all awesome sauce), and can’t wait to see where the winds take us from here. . . . . #masters_in_bnw #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #blackandwhiteisworththefight #blackandwhiteportrait #portraitperfection #portraitoftheday #postmoreportraits #portraitstream #portraitsociety #portraitpower #makeportraits #portraitsmag #postthepeople #portraitgame #dynamicportraits #portrait_ig #portrait_vision #postthepeople #portraitmood #portraitsociety #portrait_perfection #discoverportrait #portraits_ig #portrait_pros #portrait_drama #humanedge #portraitkillers #earth_portraits #globe_portraits at New York City, N.Y.

Heading to NYC for the first day of my workshop with @markmannphoto and @leicaakademieusa today. We were asked to bring 6 images representing our range. I got to go through my work for the past few years. Always a double edge sword exercise. Lot of cringing, memories, smiles. But mostly it reminded me of all the adventures photography has led me through so far, all the people I’ve met, lessons I’ve learned, and all the boundaries I have managed to push since it all began. Cheers to the next step. . . . . . . . #portraitphotography #portraitperfection #portraitoftheday #postmoreportraits #makeportraits #portraitsmag #postthepeople #pursuitofportraits #artofportrait #portraitgame #portraitstream #dynamicportraits #portrait_ig #portrait_vision #portraitsmag #postthepeople #portraitmood #portraitsociety #portrait_perfection #discoverportrait #portraits_ig #portraitpower #agameoftones #portrait_pros #portrait_drama #humanedge #portraitkillers #gameoftones #earth_portraits #globe_portraits

‘Look out 'cause here I come And I'm marching on to the beat I drum I'm not scared to be seen I make no apologies, this is me.’ (Keala Settle, This Is Me) . Best lyrics to fit K. She can sing them, she can dance them, she means them, she is them. Made for the spotlight. . . . . . #masters_in_bnw #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #blackandwhiteisworththefight #blackandwhiteportrait #portraitperfection #portraitoftheday #postmoreportraits #portraitstream #portraitsociety #portraitpower #makeportraits #portraitsmag #postthepeople #portraitgame #dynamicportraits #portrait_ig #portrait_vision #postthepeople #portraitmood #portraitsociety #portrait_perfection #discoverportrait #portraits_ig #portrait_pros #portrait_drama #humanedge #portraitkillers #earth_portraits #globe_portraits

In the spirit of a special week for me, I will be posting portraits. In a few days, I will be attending a @leicaakademieusa masterclass in NYC with the amazing @markmannphoto, whom I have been admiring the work for a long time. I asked this young man if he could come sit for me, so I could work on some lighting and prepare for my class. He was absolutely brilliant. Patient and such a great listener. He asked his mom afterward if he helped me go through college. My heart just about melted.💗 . . . . . . . #portraitphotography #portraitperfection #portraitoftheday #postmoreportraits #makeportraits #portraitsmag #postthepeople #pursuitofportraits #artofportrait #portraitgame #portraitstream #dynamicportraits #portrait_ig #portrait_vision #portraitsmag #postthepeople #portraitmood #portraitsociety #portrait_perfection #discoverportrait #portraits_ig #portraitpower #agameoftones #portrait_pros #portrait_drama #humanedge #portraitkillers #studiolighting #gameoftones

‘Photography takes an instant out of time, altering life by holding it still.’ - Dorothea Lange Can you hear the silence? Can you see everything holding completely and unequivocally... still. Take a deep breath in... hold it for just a second... and exhale with a big aaaaaahhhh. You’re welcome 😌🙏🏻 Feel free to reuse as necessary throughout the day for a moment of peace and relaxation. . . . . . . . #spi_travel #travelphotographer #gameoftones #thevisualscollective #spicollective #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #liveoutdoors #landscape_hunter #spi_travel #passionpassport #welltraveled #letsgosomewhere #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #wonderful_places #exploremore #travelawesome #ig_landscape #ig_exquisite #sharecangeo #worlderlust #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #fantastic_earth #exploretocreate #discovernovascotia at Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia

“Be still. Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity.” Lao Tzu . I walked into this beautiful old boathouse in Nova Scotia one day. They repair, craft boats in a traditional and artisanal way. I fell in love with that building instantaneously. I went back almost every day, taking the shot at different lights and angle. In the end, I think these 2 are the ones I like the most, for now. I’d want to see it in winter and dazzling sunrise (it was raining the whole time I was in that location). But in the end, I think what I loved the most about it was its stillness. Remote from time and movement, silent and discreet, hiding its treasures. . Here the long exposure evening color, swipe to see the more abstract BW. Which one do you prefer? . . . . . . . . . #spi_travel #travelphotographer #agameoftones #thevisualscollective #spicollective #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #liveoutdoors #landscape_hunter #spi_travel #passionpassport #welltraveled #letsgosomewhere #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #wonderful_places #exploremore #travelawesome #ig_landscape #ig_exquisite #sharecangeo #worlderlust #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #fantastic_earth #exploretocreate #discovernovascotia at Nova Scotia

What’s that you say? I’ve been posting a whole lot of horses lately? Yes, that I have. I’m happily building my collection of (wild) horses across the globe, whenever I am lucky enough to find them. And believe me I have a few more places to go and check out! There are a few things I am fiercely enthusiastic about in photography, no doubt. Black and white, visual story telling, eyes, curls and freckles, unique cinematographic scenes, empty landscapes, horses. Do they limit my range or curiosity? Certainly not. Nothing makes me happier than creating an image that is just right for me. A photograph I can look back on over and over, and get lost either in the memory or in the possibility. A shot that makes me want to share, in the hopes that it will make another heart skip a beat. Here’s my Golden Boy. . . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestofequines #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #agameoftones #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #visualsoflife #agameoftones #equestrianphotography #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #horsecrazy #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #wildhorsesofsableisland #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #dreamhorse #sharecangeo #agameoftones at Sable Island National Park Reserve

Pablo Picasso said ‘if I paint a wild horse, you might not see the horse, but surely you will see the wildness!’ People often ask me ‘why horses? Do you ride?’ I don’t. I did. And if I’m being perfectly honest I’m intimidated by them. Afraid? Maybe a little. Fascinated for sure by such a powerful creature. If I make an image of a wild horse, you will see the horse. But above that, I hope you will feel its commanding majesty and tenderness. . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #ig_shotz_bw #monochrome #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #bnw_captures #bnw_life #bnwcaptures at Sable Island National Park Reserve

A yearling I met walking on the beach as the sun was gently going down. He was still covered in baby fuzz and his older mate was helping him chew it off. He looked like a little lama. It’s fascinating how some horses decide to live in a pack, and some prefer a single partner, a buddy, to hang out with. I got your back, it’s you and me. ‘Just the two of us. You and I.’ Now let’s see how many of you end up singing this all day... . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #ig_shotz_bw #monochrome #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #bnw_captures #bnw_life #bnwcaptures at Sable Island National Park Reserve

‘May the best of your today be the worst of your tomorrow. May the road less paved Be the road that you follow.’ (Jason Mraz, Have It All) * The road less paved may be scarier at times, but it does make your tomorrow a whole lot richer. The challenge, the quest, the journey IS the reward. The effort, the work, the loss, even the pain, are part of the journey to seeing and owning your happiness. Face it all in grace, courage and determination, with nothing but the ground beneath your feet to remind you that you should keep moving forward. . Sorry, not sorry, for ‘inspirational’ banter. Felt like this image deserved substance. . . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #ig_shotz_bw #monochrome #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #bnw_captures #bnw_life #bnwcaptures at Sable Island National Park Reserve

‘I came across a place in the middle of nowhere With a big black horse and cherry tree’ (KT Tunstall) Sable Island is made of sand, grass, wind and dunes. All that simplicity of elements, yet so much happening at all times. At that particular moment, when this black horse ran down a sand dune, I was looking the other way to a caramel beauty slowly walking in the dancing tall grass atop a hill. Then this one came along curiously, making his way towards me and onto the beach. The movement of the wind in his hair and the explosion of sand under his hooves just created so much dynamic in the image, I loved it instantly. Wish y’all could see it in large format! . . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #ig_shotz_bw #monochrome #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #bnw_captures #bnw_life #bnwcaptures #sharecangeo at Sable Island National Park Reserve

‘We're coming to the edge Running on the water Coming through the fog Your sons and daughters Let the river run Let all the dreamers Wake the nation’ -Carly Simon One of my favorite shots from Sable Island last July. The fog, the blend of smooth and gritty textures, the horses stance. Almost a perfect album cover. Going up on my gallery soon! . . . . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #sharecangeo #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #ig_shotz_bw #monochrome #blackandwhiteonly #blackandwhite_perfection #bnw_captures #bnw_life #bnwcaptures at Sable Island National Park Reserve

I had quite the privilege to set foot on a place of Earth that is still in its natural and genuine state. Populated only by seals, birds and feral horses. In the middle of the Atlantic, off the coast of Nova Scotia. We landed on the sand after crossing a thick layer of fog. And we walked. We walked on no path, in the mist, in the dunes and grass of the moon shaped island until we met the ‘locals’. I felt an incredible sense of peace, a priceless moment of pure freedom, a rare glimpse of life without material existence, a unique time travel to an era when everything was this simple and beautiful. The fog created a mystical light, the wind an ideal movement in the tall grass. I could not have asked for a more special experience. Thank you to Sable Aviation for taking me there and a thought for @sableislandhorses for being in the back of my mind, I loved walking in your steps Drew (coincidentally a few months after Iceland). . . . . . . . . #horsepictures #horseofinsta #equineofinstagram #equineart #horsesofinstagram #bestofequines #bestnatureshots #spi_travel #welltraveled #travelphotographer #liveoutdoors #agameoftones #neverstopexploring #exploretocreate #equinephotography #visualsoflife #agameoftones #equestrianphotography #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #horseaddict #exploremore #horsetagram #horsecrazy #wildhorses #sableislandhorses #wildhorsesofsableisland #horsesplanet #horseoftheday #dreamhorse at Sable Island National Park Reserve

Florence at sunset, view from Ponte Vecchio (sigh)... need I say more? I’ll just say this then, a print of that series is on its way as we speak to a happy new home in Milan, Italy. I’m very proud of my work reaching new frontiers. I was doing a family shoot in the olive groves of a 200 year old house in Pian Di Sco (Tuscany) back in June, and the family asked to see my work from Italy. Before I even put my newest material on my gallery, they bought it on the spot for their newly designed home. . . . . . . . . #spi_travel #travelphotographer #agameoftones #womenempowerwomenphotographers #ig_exquisite #thevisualscollective #spicollective #wearethestreet #italygram #igersitalia #ig_italia #ig_italy #italy_photolovers #artofvisuals #streetphotographycommunity #worlderlust #roamtheplanet #welltravelled #beautifuldestinations #passportexpress #openmyworld #landscape_lovers #fantastic_earth #landscapehunter #passionpassport #goplayoutside #wonderful_places #exploremore #travelawesome #ig_landscape at Ponte Vecchio

Welcome to ultimate peace. Traveling alone has pros and cons. In my personal experience, it allows you to reconnect with your inner freedom and instincts. As a photographer, it lets me beam my entire attention and focus to my surroundings. I don’t physically exist, just in that moment. I live inside my frame. I let my intuition decide where to go. That day took me to Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia, on a kayak in the rain through a maze of basalt rocks on the Atlantic and it was glorious. . . . . #spi_travel #travelphotographer #agameoftones #womenempowerwomenphotographers #ig_exquisite #thevisualscollective #spicollective #artofvisuals #landscape_captures #liveoutdoors #landscape_hunter #spi_travel #passionpassport #welltraveled #letsgosomewhere #womenempowerwomenphotographers #openmyworld #wonderful_places #exploremore #travelawesome #ig_landscape #ig_exquisite #sharecangeo #worlderlust #roamtheplanet #beautifuldestinations #fantastic_earth #exploretocreate #discovernovascotia at Blue Rocks, Nova Scotia

The golden hour in Perugia was one of the most spectacular thing I’ve ever seen. True gold, spreading on the centuries old walls of the alleys, atop a hill overlooking endless views of Umbrian scapes. There I was, trying to capture this treasure in the heat of summer, breathing in the cooling winds rising with the end of the day, as they engulfed in the side streets. Pure happy moment. Perugia was my favorite place to photograph, and this shot is joining my gallery soon. . . . . #spi_travel #travelphotographer #agameoftones #womenempowerwomenphotographers #ig_exquisite #thevisualscollective #streetlife #spi_silhouettes #streetleaks #spicollective #ig_streetphotography #ig_street #LensCultureStreets #wearethestreet #italygram #igersitalia #ig_italia #ig_italy #italy_photolovers #streetleaks #streetclassics #street_ninjas #streetdreamsmag #storyofthestreet #capturestreets #artofvisuals #ig_street #ig_streetphotography #street_vision #streetphotographycommunity at Perugia, Italy
