Boston Wrap Up

This month I visited Boston, for the first time, and was pleasantly surprised.

As probably one of the oldest and most historic cities in the United States, Boston has a lot of interesting things to offer and do. While I knew beforehand that Boston was not a very large town, I was surprised by it’s town feeling. This definitely adds to the character and beauty of Boston and is also why I would suggest to visit Boston not in a short stay (2-3 days) but give yourself a week or two to really discover the city.

Niagara Falls Wrap Up

This past month I attended the Canadian Imaging Conference, for the first time, at Niagara Falls.

I had never before been to Niagara Falls before and I must admit that it both amazed and disappointed me. The falls itself are stunning and amazing to watch from close by as from afar. It is also a great walkway alongside the river and the best view is definitely from the Canadian side. But this is also the most commercialised side of the 2, although most told me that the Canadian side is the best one I can only partially agree. For me the US side is more authentic and has a more natural atmosphere.

When driving up to Niagara Falls, I made a short stop in Toronto as I said I would do in my Toronto wrap-up. Therefor this list will mainly be about Niagara Falls but will also include a couple mentions from Toronto.

Paris Wrap Up

Last week I returned from my trip to Paris, France. It was supposed to be a trip of a week, but unfortunately my grandfather passed away and I had to return home.

1. Things to see

In Paris there are lots and lots of landmarks from gardens to buildings and squares but these are the ones I always go back to:

Nova Scotia Wrap Up

These past 3 weeks, I was in Nova Scotia, Canada. A great place to go and unwind and photograph the vast nature that is still present. While Nova Scotia might seem,  to most travelers outside of Canada, as a province with nothing to do, but it is home to 2 national parks, one of the most beautiful trails in the world and the Bay of Fundy that has the highest tidal range in the world. Nova Scotia also has the highest number lighthouses of any province in Canada, which is amazing as it is the second smallest province of Canada.

1. Lighthouses to see

As Nova Scotia has the most lighthouses in Canada, you certainly have to go out and visit some of the most notable lighthouses.

3 FEP Awards

Today I received my 3 FEP awards from the hands of the FEP President, Jørgen Brandt.

I won these 3 FEP awards with my series of architectural photos in one of the most important professional photography competitions of this moment, the “European Professional Photographer of the Year Awards”. The award ceremony was held in the beautiful town of Gmunden, Austria by the Federation of European Photographers (FEP), during the “Gmunden Fototage”. Read more
