The gear I used for all my photos: Nikon D800 with a Nikon 14-24mm  (most of these are shot with my wide angle) and a Nikon 24-85mm.  A MeFOTO tripod and a wide-angle is a must. I edit all my images with my Lightroom Presets download them and give them a try.

These are Kerala’s Best Photography Spots

1. The Villages. When you are in Kerala the first thing you will notice is the beautiful smiles all around you. From kids to adults everyone is smiling in Kerala and it is very contagious. Walk the streets to get some epic street photos.  Lens I recommend is the Nikon 24-85mm Lens.

Indian Fisherman

Indian fisherman are amazing. They wake up way before sunrise to set everything up, then work their asses off. Its quite sad to see all the efforts they put into their craft often for nothing at all. I watched them and talked to them for a while, they said more times then not, they go home empty handed….

Faces of India


Death, its the only thing we all have in common and by that I mean all living things. Sooner or later we are all going to face it. I consider my self lucky because I faced it (besides a horrible car wreck I sat behind a desk wasting away for years) and realized that in the blink of an eye it can all be over and eventually will be over, and then non of this is going to matter.

I say do what you want, when you want, never look back and wish you would of followed your heart, your dreams, its not easy but you should say fuck it and go live it up, after all you don’t have much time.

I shot this in Kerala India, this was in the morning and I watch this man open up his store, it was located between a few other businesses selling coffee and fruits. What a thing to sell right a comfortable palace to rest when you actually don’t need one…I want to be burned to ashes…

People of Kerala India

People of Kerala India part one in no particular order.

As promised here is part one of my People of Kerala India series. What can I say without sounding like a broken record? I truly fell in love with this place, everyone is so happy, a sincere happy, all the smiles are sincere you can feel it, and I love every bit of it.

I had it in my head to create a series about the people before I got there, but I was going to make it black and white. The truth is I did not see Kerala in B&W, I saw it colorful and full of life, nothing gray about it. I quickly realized this and started taking lots of photos with a big fat grin on my face, I couldn’t help it, no matter where I pointed the camera there was always a smile on the other side of the lens.

I will have a small series in B&W, but I saw India in full vibrant color, and I think its a fair representation of all the people that make this such a great place. I can’t wait to go back. All this photos were edited with the preset I made and gave all my readers you can find it Here for free.

Kerala India

First week in Kerala India has been amazing, where do I start? I feel really fortunate and honored to be here. I am with the coolest group of people in a really amazing place. Check out to meet everyone.

As soon as I got here I fell in love with the people, they are so nice, always smiling always hanging out, the women are beautiful, and the kids are just so cool. Everybody is so welcoming and their smiles are contagious. I think in order to understand a place or even start to like it you must first like the people, in this case I love everyone here.

I have always heard about this place, nothing I say will do Kerala any justice, you just have to put it on your bucket list and come check it out…
