08/11/2022 - Cap d'Or Moonrise
To calculate where the moon will rise from the sea is easy, but to know when or where it will pop out of a mountain is another thing. Thanking my astronaut friends for waiting patiently and posing beside the tower...
Make sure you check out the video of this moonrise as well: vimeo.com/770828098
29/06/2021 the Umbrella Man project
My initial intention was to have someone blowing bubbles underneath the umbrella, simulating rain (upside-down). However, as we got into the sea, we were surrounded by these stingers... well that became jelly rain instead of bubble rain.
Thanks to Michele who managed to swim upside down and into position while wearing my old suit!
25/06/2021 Full moon paddle
The full moon did not rise directly from the sea as there was a little layer of clouds at the horizon. It wa still worth the paddle. Thanks Elvi for paddling out there and for listening patiently to my directions over the phone (left, right, no... further!)
06/06/2021 Upside down Lewis
This is the first time I tried out my new LiquidEye waterhousing with my recently repaired Canon 7DII. I asked lewis to stand upside down in order to create this surreal effect. He did a great job, a natural waterman
26/05/2021 Moonrise over Cap Prim
I wanted to capture the full moon rising out of the sea touching the Cap Prim with the 100-400mm lense. However, it didn't show itself until 15 minutes later due to the clouds. It was still worth it, with great company and a fresh beer ;)
17/10/2020 Mediterranean cave
For months I had this cave shot in mind. Finally on a sunny flatwater day I managed to capture the above & below of this beautiful place with the help of a very patient diver ;)
26/09/2020 SUP Yoga & submarine
After many years I decides to use my EWA waterhousing for my Canon 7DII again. It certainly beats the GoPro in clarity and colors. Here are the talented Vero and Westley filling up the scene at El Portet beach, fun & great teamwork!
26/03/2020 Freedom vs. corona virus
Spring is starting and the colors are becoming more intense.Two birds photobombed my camera while shooting a timelapse while we are in the middle of the corona crisis, symbolical for the freedom of movement we all are craving for now.
I borrowed the Canon 1DX + 400mm x 1.4 converterfor a couple of days in order to shoot the moonrise over Ibiza , that however did not work out as planned (mist & location). This was my plan B... Thanks to the TPE app I knew the full moon would rise exactly over the lighthouse of the Cabo de la Nao if I would shoot from Cala Moraig. It was very exciting to catch the first glimpse of this massive full moon!
The waves that day were too messy to surf so I grabbed my camera instead of my board. I polished the wave into a smooth one with a 0,3 second exposure (ND8 filter).
07/11/2018 El Portet
Dramatic & scenic views after sunset with Joe just finishing his surf session. Panorama of 3 vertical 11 mm photos (15 sec exposure)
07/11/2018 El Portet
IThe photogenic views from El Portet never get bored. This photo was taken with a ND8 filter allowing me to do a 3 second exposure causing the waves to appear blurred.
13/10/2018 'Costa Blanca'
It was quite tough reaching this place at night by the sea with heavy Waters, but so much worth it!
In order to light up the sea I attached a strong flashlight to a little anchor. A big thank you to these 3 brave girls!
I won't expose te exact location as this place has already been heavily instagrammed by 'influencers'.
05/10/2018 El Portet/Moraira
It is hard to see the stars and even harder to spot the milky way at the light polluted Costa Blanca. This is a 5 image panorama inbetween El Portet and Moraira (15 sec exposures)
05/06/2018 'Costa Blanca'
This half open cave is only accessible by sea. We call this place a priceless 1000 star hotel!
23/05/2018 Ecuador, Quilotoa
The hike around the entire crater at Quilotoa was breathtaking, both due to stunning views and the lack of oxygen at these heights (almost 4 km altitude)
Ecuador is a good alternative to Peru if you don't want to be sharing beautiful locations with some mass tourism.
Here we had a refreshing break at the Taxopamba waterfall.
14/04/2017 Sri Lanka
Sri Lanka was an amazing experience, culture and landscape wise. Here is a sunset shot with 0,3 sec shutter speed near Bentota.

08/12/1216 Cauma reflection
One of the few lakes in Switzerland with tropical blue colour relections
07/09/16 SUP training
These dudes never stop training for the long distance races no metter he conditions. Happy to see them win some serious battles this year
22/06/1216 A night at Benagil
We paddled to this cave right after sunset... with right amount of food, beer and candles to light up this cave.... it was magical..
04/01/16 Great start of the year!
Wishing you all a happy new year!
It seems that this year started off really well compared to the passed months... for us surfers obviously!
Good winds and rough seas to play with, and some great rewarding sunsets, good times...
26/12/15 Cova del Orguens
A great cave to visit at the Cabo de a Nao with a cathedral like entrance.
Best time to visit off-season in order to avoid large crowds of jetskiers and enjoy the peace...
26/11/15 The elephant's eye
This place is known as the 'eye of the elephant' or 'Cova Ampla', a hole in the Montgo mountain with several caves within.
I had to take multiple shots and blend them together in order to capture the magniture of it all, stunning views..
08/11/15 Falla del Moraig
My friend Juan Hernandez and I paddled through a very narrow entrance into the Falla del Moraig where there is cold sweetwater flowing from an underground river, an epic place where the sunlight only shines for one hour max... awesome views and great fun!
18/10/15 A fun & scenic surf session
I went with my buddy surfers to check out a new spot that only has good waves under certain conditions. A tricky place with very shallow rocks to surf around but the scenic settings are superb! (secret spot;)
28/09/15 When the tourists are gone
I visited Lago d'Orta, a small lake town with magnificent views in northern Italy, then I saw this sunset light shining through a narrow alley on an ancient street. I wanted to capture that perfect light moment but there were too many tourists around, I was about to give up but then there she was...
08/09/15 After the storm
After some heavy rain days (Gota fria) it was nice to come out and paddle and enjoy the first rays of light at sunset...
Summer is all about enjoying mediterranean outdoor life, paddling and cliff jumping.
03/09/15 Electrical storm...
I saw the electrical storm passing over Denia and thought the top of the Cumbre del Sol would be the place to capture it.
A kind of risky spot for capturing lightning but well worth it!
02/09/15 Paddling Cap d'Or
It has been years since I last paddled with my friend Jack. Great time catching up with scenic views.
20/06/15 Selfie time!
I borrowed a GoPro for the weekend... Although I am against selfie sticks, thought it could be useful in this case
31/05/15 Granadella paddling
Some peaceful paddles in the Granadella area (Jávea) just before the jetski & speedboat infested season starts...
25/04/15 Circuito SUP Race Mediterráneo
Great conditions for this 10 km SUP race event in Denia.
Manually over exposed to get this snow-like shot ;)
05/15 Video of a Photo Shoot
I joined my friend Juan Hernandez at the Cardamom Boutique photo shoot with model Esther Blasco Marzo and decided to make some video footage on the side. Portrait photography is not my usual thing but this model was just asking to be captured on full HD video ;)
02/15 February action...
Here is a small gallery of some February action, some surf and windsurf.
Thanking my friend Eva for taking some shots of me as well while SUP surfing and windsurfing...

25/01/15 Just... one more wave
It's freezing cold and the sun has set... You rode a couple of good waves today but you want to wait for that perfect one to ride you back home again
09/01/15 A weekend of star chasing.... (3 photo slideshow)
Night visits to the Cova de les Sendres and to the Falla del Moraig with a spectacular moonrise reward...

Punta Hidalgo (Tenerife)
A great surf spot in Tenerife. This photo is one of 200 I shot for a timelapse sequence, which I finally never published.
1 second shutter speed, after sunset surf
VIDEO - Timelapses part II
I spent quite some time on this 2nd timelapse movie, always being alert about atmospherical changes, clear starry nights, upcoming sunsets.... Finally the over 8000 photos I shot resulted in this video where the post-production efforts shouldn't be underrated. Best views at 720p (HD) or 1080p (full HD).... enjoy!
Jump & Reflect
Sunset with an 11mm lens stuck on the floor in front of a small 1-2 meter wide puddle, the effect can be amazing.
Sunset SUP surf
Dude Lewis surfing the beach break and me upto my waist in the water holding the camera without waterproof gear so I can use the flash, tricky!
