The moon (Musandam, Oman)
 

Is unreal.

So much so, that I was rendered speechless for basically the whole trip. I was so in awe with everything, that I couldn't really think of worthy words to say. About anything. (Also, my mouth was very dry because it's dusty).

Glorious barren mountains, fjords and endless sea. All sorts of dolphins, whales, goats and donkeys and not so many humans.

Anyhow, If you want to see some insane landscapes that make you feel like you're on a different planet, and/or your vocal chords need a rest, I highly recommend going to there.

MILA ZOVKO A/W 2017

Earlier this year, I had the honour of shooting another look book for Mila Zovko.

The autumn/winter collection is SPECTACULAR.

Incredible cuts, colour palette and textures, for which Vancouver's Queen Elisabeth Park provided some rad backdrops.

And although it was cloudy and rainy every other day; the sun graced us with it's glory on shoot day. And I am eternally grateful.

Here is a look book drive-by + a couple of outtakes!
I will add the full shoot to the main site sooon.

Thank you super team - Sandra Zovko, Paula Lanzador, Annapurna, Natalia Grosner, Hunter Somerville!

CLAUDIO'S TERRACE(S)

These terraces are two of my favourite places in the world.

They belong to my dearest dude Claudio (and his roomies) and are located in Barcelona - right on top of each other, directly under the sun. 

Every time I visit, a LOT of my time is spent sitting on one of said terraces and debating which one I love the most. Sometimes the bottom one, because of the hammock and other times, the top; because of longer sun exposure. Difficult to decide, a true cerebral labyrinth.

In conclusion, sitting in the sun is the best.

(ꈍᴗꈍ) like so.

Here are some terrace images from a couple of weeks ago.

UAE Pt.2 DUBAI!

And here are a few images from the civilisation of Dubai!

It's much like the desert; but instead of sand dunes there are shopping malls and the camels are fancy cars!

UAE Pt.1 DESERT!!!

Over Christmas and New Year's, a hundred billion years ago (this past year), my Mom and I went on a ladies trip to Dubai.

We had the privilege of being hosted by some dear friends, who showed us all kinds of things that the double-decker tour bus doesn't offer. (Although I have to say those buses are better than I expected.)

For NYE we went camping in the Sweihan desert with said wonderful friends, and I finally fulfilled my childhood dream of visiting a proper desert.

The kind that you see in cartoons and children's encyclopaedias.

Glorious sand dunes, crazy skies and CAMELS!

Camels are dope.

They smell bad, but make up for it by being generally hilarious. They don't really tell jokes, but you know in your heart that they're into stoner comedies or something.

One pro-tip I learned: A desert is the WORST place to wake up hungover. Seriously, so dry. The driest?

I took an overwhelming amount of photos throughout the whole trip that I will eventually put together into a story… But for now, here are some 🐫 s!

MILA ZOVKO

Sandra Zovko, is the founder of the insanely beautiful Mila Zovko knitwear brand and one of my besties / muses for life. This past August, she commissioned me to shoot the Mila Zovko Spring/Summer 2017 look book, in Dubrovnik Croatia.

This was one of those magical, rare jobs. When your client is a close friend, the sun shines, the clothes are stunning and your model is as interesting and charming, as she is beautiful.

Although it required a lot of planning and setting of alarm clocks, It never really felt like work. We had a lot of room for spontaneity, laughing/frolicking and rosé in the evenings. 

In conclusion, collaborating with friends is the best! Because even when it gets stressful, or too hot and you run out of fizzy water, the heart is all smiles.

Thanks Sandra, Eve and Darius for being a rad team and Importanne resort for making our lives easy. And the awesomest - Natalia Grosner, for designing a badass layout for the look book.

Here are a few shots and outtakes!  I'm in the process of redesigning my entire website, so I will add the whole look book soooon!

L.A.

Kalifornija.

Recently I had the pleasure of visiting L.A. and frolicking about with some of the finest of humans!

A brief summary:

-I spotted the only celebrity I needed to spot : Christopher Meloni. He was drinking a coffee, just like a regular person!

- Ate so many delicious foods that I had a serious fight with my jeans at the end of the trip. 

  Seriously tho, the food. 

- Got to hang out with some of my best friends in the universe. 

  Friends that have made L.A. their home, and friends who came from NYC, Vancouver and the Canadian North, just for the super awesome  hangouts.

- Reaffirmed the fact that we are a bunch of extremely lucky people. 

  Lucky to know each other, lucky that we get to choose where to call home, and lucky that  despite the enormous distances, we still    manage to see each other and maintain beautiful  said friendships.
