China: The Last Eastern Frontier

“What you play?” says the 26-year-old passenger, eyeing the card game we’re engrossed in with wonder. “Is it higher or lower?” comes the next question, the same broken English accent making the situation feel instantly awkward. We look at her, try to explain it isn’t what she thinks it is, before giving up, exclaiming, “yes!” […]

Filming The World’s Largest Sand Island

Fraser Island (south coastal Queensland, Australia) endures the constant hum of off-road 4x4s. Along its seemingly endless beach highway, tourists and travellers tear up and down at 80km dodging freshwater creeks, dead whales and dopey visitors.

Northern Myanmar: Land of 1960s Travel

The eyes are upon me. Everyone is watching. As I walk down the street, people turn with varied inquisitiveness. Some throw subtle glances; others prefer the long-stare. Some smile, some giggle, but everyone looks without fail. I feel celebrity-like, more-so than I ever have done in my short life. It should feel weird, odd or […]

Photographing Buddhist Clarity

When you travel you have lots of thought-provoking experiences and much of what you read, can at times, resonate with your character in a way you didn’t think was possible. It’s through these broadening of horizons that we become better people. While staying in Chiang Mai, Thailand, I came across a garden full of Buddhist […]

Face to Face with Dead Monks: Hidden Temples in Bangkok

He scuttles past, murmuring under his breath, “come, second floor, beautiful view”. This little old man with his wrinkled forehead and beaming smile can be trusted, right? After all, I’m not at a tourist trap temple. It’s a local place of worship, far from scammers and chancers. “Come, come,” he repeats, drawing me in with […]
