I will always remember 2014 as one of the most important years in my career, as this is the year when I moved to photography as a full-time profession. Being able to combine my passion for photography and travel is a dream come true. I’ve put together a post of all the images that a) I feel made me a better photographer and b) that I feel really capture the essence of the places that we’ve seen and the people that we’ve met.
This shot gave me nothing but happiness. I was cycling around Siem Reap trying to catch the sunset when I stopped in a field. Before I clicked it, I knew it was a money shot.
Taken at the UNSECO World Heritage Site of Angkor. If you haven’t been, you should put this one on the list.
I clicked this on the second day of our trek in Sapa. These kids were playing with their sticks but the moment they saw me they started moving away briskly. I hope this picture shows you their innocence.
This Baba ji was a funny character. He was posing for an American tourist in Udaipur, India while I clicked this. Baba ji wasn’t happy when I walked away without paying him.
We used a bus to get from Dalat to Nha Trang in Vietnam. The views from our seat were beautiful. This one is my favourite from that bus ride.
The Taj Mahal has been a photographer’s inspiration for centuries. It swept me off the ground when I first saw it. Life would have been incomplete without this one.
Po Nagar temple in Nha Trang, Vietnam is a very, very old Hindu temple. When we were here, we were fortunate to witness a local folk dance done by the Cham people. I took this while they were resting post-performance.
These two are some of the cutest kids that we saw in Vietnam. They were trying to cross a busy street in the Hoi An old town. I clicked this while the kid was waiting for a scooter to pass.
If you’ve been following our blog, you will know that we were totally overwhelmed by the sunsets on the island of Koh Lanta in Thailand. This view brought me to peace – peace that I’d been looking for most of my adult life.
There are two ladies in my life that I love like no other. One’s my mother and the other is the one in the picture. She inspires me, gives me strength to move on and the courage to stand up when I’m down
