What came first, the travel or the photography? Was becoming a travel photographer your plan, or did it you fall into it?

对你来说哪个更重要,旅行还是摄影?你的计划是成为一名旅行摄影师还是你碰巧进到这个行业的?

I’ve always enjoyed design, arts and photography as a kid. Although I’ve only really gotten into Photography when I was able to afford a very good camera phone, my good old iPhone 4. The perks of having it as well was connecting with the creative community who share the same passion. This actually inspired me to learn more and to travel more.

我从小就喜欢设计,艺术和摄影。虽然我真正开始摄影是在好不容易买到的第一部老式iPhone 4才开始的。与创意社区的人共同拥有同样的热情。这实际上激发了我学习更多,旅行更多。

 

How would you describe the work you do?

你如何描述你的工作?

I mostly do Travel, Portrait and Lifestyle photography. This includes taking photos of the cool stuff I use, the pretty food I find, and of course sharing my travel adventures to everyone. I also enjoy taking portraits of people in different environments and I find joy in incorporating nature to the portraits I do.

我主要做旅行,肖像和生活方式的摄影。这包括拍摄我使用过很酷的东西,我找到的精致食物,当然还有分享我的旅行冒险给大家。我也喜欢在不同的环境中拍摄人物肖像,我喜欢将大自然融入到我的肖像中。

 

How do you think social media has changed travel? How do you think Instagram has changed the face of travel photography? How has it impacted your career?

你如何看待社交媒体改变了旅行?你如何看待Instagram改变了旅行摄影的面貌?它如何影响你的职业生涯?
Social Media has been very influential to travel. As Instagram is one of the best visual online platform, it has become so easy to get inspiration to travel. You can pretty much check it anytime and anywhere and learn something about a place. I also love the social aspect of it as you can connect to other travellers or photographers to learn more about the place or even techniques in photography.

社交媒体对旅行非常有影响力。由于Instagram是最好的视觉在线平台之一,它已经变得如此容易获得旅行的灵感。你几乎可以随时随地刷新它并了解某个地方。我也喜欢它的社交方面,因为你可以接触到其他旅行者或摄影师,以了解更多关于能够摄影的地方甚至技术。

I am fortunate enough to be able to work with different brands and organisations through this platform. I have been able to travel for free and earn a little bit more though travel and photography and it’s just amazing because it doesn’t even feel like work when you’re passionate about something.

我很幸运够通过这个平台与不同的品牌和企业合作。通过旅行和摄影,我可以免费旅行并赚取一点收入,而这种感觉真是太棒了,因为当你对某些事情充满热情时,它甚至不会觉得自己在工作。

 

As a renowned travel photographer, what do you think is the most exciting part about traveling and photography?

作为著名的旅游摄影师,您认为旅行和摄影最令人兴奋的部分是什么?

I get the most satisfaction in sharing my travels. Photography is a great platform to express all the excitement I feel about travelling. Creators express themselves with how they edit and set a certain tone to their images and this whole process is something I truly enjoy. It’s also getting to interact with the community who gets motivated by my photos.

分享我的旅行让我感到最满足。摄影是表达我对旅行感到兴奋的绝佳平台。创作者用自己的方式表达自己,让他们对自己的形象进行编辑和设置某种色调,这整个过程是我最喜欢的。它也开始与被我的照片所感染到的社区互动。

Photography equipment can be heavy – when you travel, what equipment is essential? What advice do you have for packing for your travel photography adventures?

摄影设备可能很重 – 在旅行时,什么设备是必不可少的?你为旅行摄影工具有什么建议?

At the end of the day, you have to make sure that you still get to enjoy your travels and not be bogged down with all the equipment you have to bring. On my recent trip to Hawaii, I brought with me three heavy lenses and my DSLR but I ended up just using my phone most of the time and I still managed to get really good photos. It also really depends on your style of photography. For travelling, if you really want to bring your DSLR, make sure you bring with you a wide angle lens to capture more of the landscape (eg. 16-35mm lens). There are even wide angle lenses you can get for your smartphones. I got the Moment wide-angle lens for my recent trip for my current smartphone.

在一天结束时,您必须确保您仍然可以享受您的旅行,并且不会因为您带来的所有设备而陷入困境。在我最近去夏威夷的旅途中,我带来了三个沉重的镜头和我的数码单反相机,但最终我大部分时间是在用手机,并且仍然设法拍出了非常好的照片。这也取决于你的摄影风格。对于旅行,如果你真的想带上你的数码单反相机,确保你带上一个广角镜头来捕捉更多的景色(例如16-35mm镜头)。你甚至可以为你的智能手机安装广角镜头。我最近为我目前的智能手机进行了改造,安装了Moment广角镜头。

 

What are your personal favourite travel photos you’ve taken? What’s your favorite travel photography destination? Why?

您拍摄的个人最喜爱的旅行照片是什么?你最喜欢的旅行摄影目的地是什么?为什么?

My photos from South Africa. It’s a dream for most people to be able to go to a safari adventure and that’s something I was able to accomplish in 2017. Being there with nature was absolutely life-changing and it’s definitely something I’ll never forget.

我的照片来自南非。对于大多数人来说,能够参加一次野生动物探险活动是一个梦想,这是我在2017年完成的事情。与大自然相处绝对是改变生活价值观的,是我永远不会忘记的回忆。

 

How do you approach travel? Is it something you prefer planning for, or going on the fly?

你如何对待旅行?你更喜欢提前计划还是飞了再说?

Travelling is expensive no doubt. It’s definitely something I have to save for. Booking in months in advance will definitely save you a lot of money may it be flights or accommodations. I do my own itinerary which helps out with the budget, instead of going with a package. Also, travelling with someone will make it a bit easier to plan out things.

旅行无疑是昂贵的。我必须要为它存款。提前几个月预订,一定会为您节省很多钱,航班或住宿。我做我自己的行程这帮助节省了预算,而不是拿了包就走。另外,和别人一起旅行会让事情变得容易一些。

What do you think makes for a good travel photograph and what tips would you offer to amateur travel photographers trying to improve their photography skills?

你认为怎样才能拍出好的旅行照片,以及为业余摄影师提供哪些窍门以提高摄影技巧?

First thing to do is find your style. You can easily get inspiration from social media like pinterest, flickr, smugmug and of course Instagram. Go out there and shoot as much as you can. Find things that you enjoy capturing and develop your own style of editing.

首先要做的是找到你的风格。你可以很容易地从社交媒体获得灵感,比如pinterest,flickr,smugmug,当然还有Instagram。走出去拍摄尽可能多的照片。找到你喜欢捕捉的东西,并开发你自己的编辑风格。

You do not need an expensive camera to take amazing photos. Most Instagram superstars started their photography with their smartphones!

你不需要昂贵的相机拍摄出惊人的照片。大多数Instagram网红用他们的智能手机进行他们的摄影!

Never stop learning. As with most things, it’s always good to improve on your craft and learn more techniques. Learn the basics of composition as this will help you build up your individual style too. YouTube is a great resource to learn techniques. I still watch different tutorials regularly from some great photographers around the globe. Best of all, it’s free!

从不停止学习。与大多数事情一样,改进技术和学习更多技巧总是好的。学习合成的基础知识,因为这可以帮助你建立你的个人风格。YouTube是学习技术的好资源。我仍然经常看一些世界各地伟大的摄影师不同的教程。最重要的是,它是免费的!

Finally, connect and collaborate with other creators. Not only will this be a great resource of learning and getting to practice photography, it is also a great way to get your name out there. I’ve been active on local Instagram community meetups (aka Instameets) both here in Melbourne and in Manila and I’ve met really good friends through the meet-ups as well.

最后,与其他创作者联系并合作。这不仅是学习和摄影练习的好资源,也是一个提高你名气的好方法。我一直活跃在墨尔本和马尼拉的本地Instagram社区聚会(又名Instameets)上,我通过聚会也认识了很多好朋友。

Shellebrating World Turtle Day: Top 3 Dive Spots in the Philippines | 菲律宾的3大潜水胜地

By Jeremy Bishop on Unsplash

To shellebrate 26 May World Turtle Day we are exploring our top 3 beloved divings spots in the Philippines. The Philippines is home to many of our terrific testudines and their beautiful aquatic abodes, with splendid initiatives to help conserve our marine mates too. Whether you’re a Dive Master or just want to dip your toes in, the Philippines is the perfect place to do it.

5月26日是世界海龟日,我们正在菲律宾探索最受欢迎的3大潜水点。菲律宾是许多潜蝇和美丽的水生栖息地的所在地,同时也有丰富的活动帮助我们保护海洋伙伴。无论您是潜水大师,还是只想浸在水里,菲律宾都是完美的地方。

Although there are hundreds of incredible diving spots in the Philippines, we’re focusing on more sustainable and eco-friendly locations where you can enjoy yourself without having to worry about damaging any marine marvels. Some fantastic conservation projects we recommend getting involved or looking into are PADI’s Project Aware, WWF’s Coral TriangleMarine Wildlife Watch the PhilippinesPeople and the Sea, and Sierra Madre’s Aware Sea Turtle Distinctive Speciality (for the more experienced divers among us).

虽然菲律宾有数百个令人难以置信的潜水点,但我们专注于更可持续和环保的地点,让您尽情享受,而不必担心会破坏任何海洋奇迹。我们推荐的一些梦幻般的保护项目包括PADI的意识项目,WWF的珊瑚三角区观察菲律宾的海洋野生动物人与海,以及Sierra Madre的海归灭绝意识(为我们中更有经验的潜水员)。

Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park | Tubbataha珊瑚礁自然公园

Within the diverse UNESCO world heritage Tubbataha Reefs Natural Park live an abundance of whales, dolphins, sharks, over 500 species of fish and of course, turtles! Regarded as a global centre of marine biodiversity, the Palawan located nature park stretches over nearly 100,000 hectares reaching depths of up to 100m. Spread across it’s pristine coral reefs are 17 official diving sports surrounding 3 islands.

在不同的联合国教科文组织世界遗产内,Tubbataha珊瑚礁自然公园内栖息着丰富的鲸鱼,海豚,鲨鱼,500多种鱼类,当然还有海龟!被视为全球海洋生物多样性中心的巴拉望岛自然公园绵延近10万公顷,深达1亿米。遍布原始珊瑚礁围绕3个岛屿,有17项官方潜水运动。

Liveaboards (where you live in a boat to dive) are available to access the nature park, partnering with the Tabbataha Management Office (TMO) to promote sustainability and conservation. It’s important to note that The TMO does not operate commercial trips to the Park; the liveaboard have the required permits to operate. Staying in Puerto Princesa City you may also be able to locate accredited day trips to the Reefs Natural Park, as the reefs are only 150km southeast of the city.

Liveaboards(住在船上去潜水)与Tabbataha管理办公室(TMO)一起合作推广可持续发展和保护,你可以通过坐船进入自然公园。重要的是要注意,TMO不运营公园的商业旅行;船上有操作所需的许可证。入住Puerto Princesa City,您也可以找到经过认证的珊瑚礁自然公园一日游,因为珊瑚礁仅在城市东南部150公里处。

Balicasag Turtle Point Dive Site | Balicasag乌龟潜水站点

Turtle point dive site is located on the eastern side of Balicasag Island, Bohol. It features underwater caves about 60 to 75 meters down, in which a variety of turtles have made their lairs. Turtle Point was unsubtly named due to the fact that the place is a haven for turtles. Balicasag Island is a flat island 4 kms southwest of what is known as Panglao Reef. The whole of Island can be toured in a day, but to properly absorb the serenity the island has to offer we recommend spending more time there. The Island is fringed by a reef which is filled with countless schools of fish, coral and naturally, sea turtles.

龟点潜水点位于Balicasag岛的东侧。它有大约60到75米的水下洞穴,其中各种海龟制作了它们的巢穴。由于这个地方是乌龟的避难所,因此乌龟角并没有得名。 Balicasag岛是一个平坦的岛屿,位于邦劳礁岛西南4公里处。整个岛屿可以在一天内游览完毕,但要恰到其处吸取岛屿所提供的宁静,我们建议在那里花更多的时间。这个岛屿被无数的鱼类,珊瑚和天然海龟的珊瑚礁所环绕。

Balicasag Island is one of many islands within the region of Panglao Island, and many explorers enjoy island hopping between them. Staying on Panglao Island and finding authorised tour companies to dive into the beauty of Balicasag Island is the best way to do it.

Balicasag岛是邦劳岛地区内众多岛屿之一,许多探险者都可以在岛屿之间探险。留在邦劳岛,并找到授权的旅游公司潜入巴利卡萨岛的美景是最好的方式。

Coconut – Apo Island | 椰子 – 阿波岛

Not to be confused with Apo Reef, Apo Island is located off of Dauin, 25km south of Dumaguete City. The island is home to around 1000 residents and offers truly world-class diving. Due to this, electricity only runs from 6am-9pm so the island can retain it’s sanctity. It also has an abundance of interesting marine life, including marvellous marine turtles. Apo Island is one of the first protected marine sanctuaries, as the island’s leaders introduced conservation guidelines aimed to defend illegal and highly destructive fishing practices. The Philippine Tourism Board has named Apo Island as a “Top 100 Gem”

不要与阿波礁混淆,阿波岛位于杜马格特市以南25公里的道因附近。该岛拥有约1000名居民,并提供真正世界级的潜水。由于这个原因,供电只能从早上6点到晚上9点,因此岛屿可以保留它的神圣性。它还有丰富有趣的海洋生物,包括奇妙的海龟。阿波岛是第一个受保护的海洋保护区之一,因为该岛的领导人介绍了旨在捍卫非法和高度破坏性捕鱼活动的保护准则。菲律宾旅游局已将阿波岛评为“100大宝石”。

Locally referred to as “the Washing Machine”, Coconut dive spot equally as thrilling as it is beautiful. Schools of fish often form bait balls, where they instinctually form tight formations together as a defence mechanism. Witnessing this is a once in a life time opportunity and not to be missed if possible.

当地被称为“洗衣机”,椰子潜水点同样惊人,因为它太美了。鱼群往往形成饵球,它们在一起形成紧密的阵形,作为防御机制。见证这是一生中一次的机会,如果可能的话不要错过。

Writing this up has tortoise so much, now we’re feeling inspired to go diving and help protect our turtle friends!

写这篇文章让我们感受到潜水的灵感,并帮助保护我们的乌龟朋友们!

Discover the Hidden Cool of Manila 解开马尼拉的面纱

When people picture the Philippines, it is usually the powdery white sands of island paradises Boracay or Palawan that come to mind.  In fact, many see its sprawling capital of Manila as merely a stopover. Sure, to the incurious traveller Manila is simply a concrete jungle, a network of crowded roads connecting skyscrapers and shanty towns alike.  But give it the attention it deserves and Manila opens up to reveal a developing city of excitement and leisure; one that truly deserves your full attention.

当人们描绘菲律宾时,通常会想到长滩岛或巴拉望岛的白色沙滩。事实上,许多人认为马尼拉,这个庞大的首都,是一个中途停留站。当然,对于不感兴趣的游客来说,马尼拉简直就是一片混凝土丛林,连接着摩天大楼和棚户区那些拥挤的公路网络。但给予一些关注的话,马尼拉其实很开放,能让你领略到它是一个结合令人兴奋的事物和休闲的发展中城市;一个值得你充分关注的地方。

How to celebrate Christmas in Asia 圣诞节在亚洲

christmas in asia

Christmas is just a western thing isn’t it? Well, not entirely. If you find yourself not wanting to succumb to hosting a dinner for 500, and wanting to escape any family arguments that may just escalate over who has control over the TV remote, you could always fly over to Asia for a different kind of Christmas. Right?!

圣诞节仅仅属于西方?不完全是。 如果你不想被举办一场500人的晚宴而压垮,如果你想逃离在家里因为争夺电视机遥控器而引发的争论,那么你可以选择来到亚洲过圣诞节。

Asia currently has the highest proportion of Buddhists, however, there are still millions of Christians home to Asia, as well as the East being more and more open to adopting western practices and celebrations. Whether it’s just for commercial capital or a serious sequence of morning mass, we’ve looked into how Christmas is celebrated across Asia:

目前亚洲的佛教徒比例最高,但仍有数百万基督徒驻扎在亚洲,而东方则越来越愿意采取西方的做法来庆祝活动。无论是商务活动还是大量的早晨大众,我们在研究亚洲是如何庆祝圣诞节的:
