Werken in de Vineyards

Zoals jullie in mijn andere blogs hebben kunnen lezen, heb ik veel gewerkt voor Groopy Grape Tours. Een reisbureau in het zuiden van Australië. Sommige dagen waren intens, maar mijn dagtrip naar Barossa Valley was een aangename afwisseling. De dag bestond veelal uit korte busritjes,  wijn drinken en het genieten van de warme zonnestralen. Barossa Valley is een van de oudste wijnstreken in Australië. Er worden rode en witte wijnen geproduceerd en het aandeel in de nationale wijnproductie is iets minder dan...

Filming at Kangaroo Island

Two days at Kangaroo Island I can’t open my eyes. It’s again 5:00 o’clock. I assumed I got used to it by now, but my body resists each time. My camera bag is packed and ready to go. It’s a five-minute walk to my pick up location. “Shit, where is my stabilizer?” I’m running back to home. It’s not far, but I didn’t calculate these extra ten minutes. My back is sweating and I’m digging in my suitcase. “Why is this...

The humans of Mysteryland

For quite some years I'm taking pictures at festivals. Together with a journalist, I collect quotes from the visitors. These quotes are telling little stories about their personality.

How does a digital nomad lifestyle looks like?

Recently I was giving a workshop for a group media students. One student was almost to shy to ask the following question: "may I ask how much money you earn and how you invest this?" I told him right away that he should always ask these kinds of questions to entrepreneurs. It's so important to have a realistic idea about a digital nomad style. Luckily schools are putting more effort in business classes at Art Schools. But back in my days, you...

This is how I work during my travels

What kind of equipment do I bring in my suitcase? Days before I started my worldtrip I had quit some concerns what to bring. Do I need to pack my flash light? Well, most of the time I make videos, but what if I get a job in photography? Okay, less t-shirts and more equipment. I can always wash my clothes more often. After traveling for months I finally found a good workflow. I prefer to travel as light as possible,...
