Surreal landscape of Barbados

Time came for us to pack our bags and travel again! Off we go to Barbados, where we will start work on our next book “Barbados Highlights”. We will photograph there several spots, including some fine landscape and landmarks, such as an old sugar wind mill, now under care of Barbados National Trust.

Then we will visit Dominica. It will be our fourth visit to that amazing island, and we plan to photograph there picturesque Indian River, couple of waterfalls, and also Kalinago people – one of only two last remaining Carib tribes in the whole Caribbean. I am quite excited about this rare photo opportunity.

Material from this shoot along with interview by Margaret will be used for a story in Real Life Caribbean – fine lifestyle magazine from Cayman Islands.
We will also photograph amazing eco-resort in Dominica called Secret Bay. Beautiful place, we are happy to return there.

What else?  ZING, Liat Caribbean airline in-flight magazine published our story and photographs presenting fine architecture by Lane Pettigrew, known Caribbean architect.

Also another Caribbean magazine MACO used lots of my photos for their 10 page story on mentioned above Secret Bay. My photo of Secret Bay bungalow at night also landed on their cover.
Long overdue, Maco!

and last news for today: We will be publishing a fine art book of paintings by known artist devoting his work to the beauty of tiny island of Bequia. Bequia is a tiny island between St Vincent and Mustique – another fine place we visited when working on our first book, Tropical Homes of the Eastern Caribbean.
Stay tuned – you will be the first to see photos from our trip – and soon! And, as always – click Like or Share, if you like these short updates from our work! Cheers!
