One amazing sunset ago in Dubai πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ
β €
β €
I hated cropping this picture so I uploaded the full version of the photo as well. I wonder if Instagram will ever let us post full 3Γ—2 pictures... what's your thoughts on that?

These African sunsets will always remain in my memories as the scenery was one of a kind! It just had a vibe of it's own that's difficult to put into words unless you have experienced them πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡ΏπŸŒ
β €
β €
Zanzibar was one of my first travel destinations back which I went to back in 2017. I asked on my stories to guess where I went and as promised, S/O the first three people that guessed correctly: (@moritz_vo / @charlotteanthonissen / @akshootss ) give them a follow!

Let's play a little game called: Did he drone this?
β €
β €
If you think this is taken with a drone, then mention what drone I used. If you think I shot it with a camera, then mention which (exact model) camera I used for this shot.

"A question opens the mind. A statement closes the mind."
β €
I am not one to put a so called life inspirational quote on photos, but, when I heard this today in a YouTube video, it made me pause and think about it. I thought it's worth sharing with all of you :)

Some more shots of the Peugeot 508!
β €
β €
Honestly, I haven't done a proper car shoot before but I am quite happy with the results I got from this car! I will definitely be doing more cars in the near future 🀟🏼
β €
β €
Let me know which one of these photos were your favourite down in the comments!!
β €
β €
*You might notice on the last photo that the speed is 150. We were on the road after Abu Dhabi where the legal speed limit was 160 so we set the car on cruise control at 149 which you can notice it in the photo in green light.

I find it difficult to write about this photo. Photos invoke emotions and sometimes, it can be difficult to put them in words.
β €
β €
With this photo, I feel like I have seen it in a magazine or something, sometime in my life.
β €
β €
The perfect glow of sunset against a silhouette skyline with the canal under it. This is a special photo for me.

Perhaps my favourite sunset time lapse I have shot till date!
β €
β €
Took this video back in January at one of the coolest lounge I've ever been! It's an active helipad that turns in a crowded bar after working hours!
β €
β €
Since most lounge or such don't allow tripod, I used @jobyinc 3K gorillapod which honestly does such a great jobs! (Not sponsored). I found myself using it a lot! Especially when travelling πŸ‘ŒπŸΌ

In honor of Malaysia's 62 independence day, here are nine photos of their iconic skyline:
β €
β €
1- Kuala Lumpur fireworks for new years eve of 2019! I wanted to do a unique edit so I did a color splash!
β €
β €
2- I thought the sunset would be dull that day but boii I was in for a surprise!
β €
β €
3- The sky was just the perfect blue that day! It was so beautiful and perfect!
β €
β €
4- Same as the previous one but from a different angle!
β €
β €
5- Taken from KL TV tower which is the second highest skyscraper in Malaysia! (I waited 2 hours for my turn in the glass skybox to take this picture)
β €
β €
6- This shot was taken from the KL TV tower as well. I somehow managed to give the photo this de- saturated blue sci-fi look which I was really digging!
β €
β €
7- Taken from Traders Hotel Sky Bar which offers the best view of the city centre! The bar has some nice cocktails available with a happy hour offer as well!
β €
β €
8- Petronas Twin Towers with the KL TV Tower framed in the middle! Got to love Kuala Lumpur's skyline scene!
β €
β €
9- Lastly, and perhaps one of my all time favourite photos that I've taken! I love it because it gives a early 2000's tumblr city vibes which is a photo I had in the back of my head for the longest time!!
β €
β €
Comment below your favourite photo out of all! Once again, happy independence day to all of my Malaysian friends! πŸ‡²πŸ‡Ύ

This is the result of when you take three espresso shots right before you edit! πŸ˜›πŸ€˜πŸΌ

Took this shot in January with the Nikon Z7! The Z7 has such a good dynamic range unlike it's lil bro (Z6) which sometimes struggles, if I'm honest. However, both cameras are absolutely fantastic and I couldn't think of a better camera to travel with!

Adventure with homies
β €
β €
Gathered a bunch of homies last weekend and we went to an island far away. So far that it was closer to Saudi than Abu Dhabi 🀣
β €
β €
We started at 11pm and reached at around 4am. Then we slept for a good hour or two in the car as we were waiting for sunrise. β €
β €
We saw the first light on the island is it looked so amazing! I will be posting more photos from this adventure in the near future! I had a blast with my friends!

This is a photo I had stuck in my head for a long time and I am so happy that I could finally bring it to life!!
β €
β €
I have had the Peugeot 508 for a few days now and I have been really loving it! The design of it inside and outside are insane! I am writing this as I'm very comfortably sitting in it! I will post some interior shots of the inside soon!
β €
β €
Watch my stories to see me editing this shot with before/after!! πŸ˜›

β €
I really haven't shot cars too much before. I consider this to be my first proper car photo! What do you guys think? More car shots on my Instagram?

Sri Lanka was my first destination and the beginning of my adventure this summer!
β €
β €
Landing into Colombo was so beautiful! I got lucky that my flight timing was changed (without me being notified πŸ‘€) which meant I was landing at night, but, at day light!
β €
β €
Here's a clip I took on that flight where I got to see a rainbow twice!! Very grateful πŸ™πŸΌ

Istanbul from gorgeous golden sunset to stunning blue sky at night! πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡·
β €
β €
Turkey is a destination that I'm sure I will visit many times throughout my life! With so many photography opportunities, lively and amazing atmosphere, plus everything is cheap and/or reasonably priced! (Especially now with the excellent currency exchange rates!)
β €
β €
It has never been a better time to visit Istanbul and Turkey than now! I might hit this country again in winter so I could finally see snow for the first time in my life ❄

Above Beirut πŸ‡±πŸ‡§
β €
β €
I like this photo a lot and I find this photo to be special. I think it's a very story telling image. An airplane flying over a dense middle eastern city at sunset. I can totally imagine this photo being a poster of a movie or a b-roll sequence in between scenes in a movie. I like Beirut because as much as it's fairly modern, it's also a city that gives a very nostalgic vibe. I call Beirut the "Havana" of the middle east!

Winter sunsets in Dubai! Can't wait for the weather to drop to 25° so I can start wearing a jacket again 🀣
β €
β €
I'm thinking of hitting a winter destination later in the year as I've never seen snow in my life! (Seriously, never). Any destination suggestions? β €
