another month has flown by, therefore another newsletter is in your inbox! A bit late, but better late than never! The past month has been an incredible one, where after 3 years I left Europe for 2 weeks to travel around the Yucatán Peninsula & Quintana Roo area of Mexico with 5 other photographers. It was a bit of a spontaneous trip, but an unbelievable one! When I got back, I got hit quite badly with a stomach bug. It wasn't pretty, hence the delay on this newsletter!
As I am writing this, I am a few kilometers up in the air returning to Europe. With the current turmoil going on in Europe, I feel extremely grateful and privileged to have been to Mexico. To be honest, it felt very weird to be sharing a lot about my trip on social platforms knowing a few countries over from home people were fleeing and fighting for their freedom. It is heartbreaking to see what reality Ukraine is going through. Together with the 5 other photographers I was with, we read up on the situation a lot and also discussed this feeling of privilege. We agreed that this trip could be an escape from the darkness and negative news for many following us. Thankfully, we got a lot of positive reactions from this and were also perceived this way.
Together with 5 other photographers, we decided to do a trip to Mexico. It fitted very well with very similar expectations as all photographers; waking up early, chasing the best light, and photo. We travelled around Yucatán & Quintana Roo for two and a half weeks by car. We had a few partnerships lined out with hotels and tourism boards. Below, I shared our itinerary and some more trip details! If you would like to go to Mexico, shoot me a message and I can give you some tips!
This trip has certainly made me realize how much I have missed travelling, meeting new people, experiencing new cultures and foods, and being amazed every day by different practices.
As mentioned, March is going to be filled with many projects. There will be a couple of bigger video productions going on, smaller and bigger photoshoots which include a bit of travel and doing the creative producing for Bonusrun for two projects. The project for the vfBB is also ongoing as well.
Furthermore, in April, we are off to Iran! Another big adventure, so a lot of preparing to do this month!
