A set focused on the Skies of Mallorca during the month of November and December 2015. Most are taken at dusk or sunrise, however a couple are taken during mid-day with clear blue skies.
A completely renovated apartment in the centre of Lloseta featuring an extra glass bedroom in the upper floor which originally was used as a storage area. Assignment commissioned by Interior decorators D’Oliver Mobiliari i Complements in Palma de Mallorca.
If you happen to be travelling through Bulgaria, you will rarely find yourself with Zlatograd on your immediate to-do list, yet this magical little town has plenty to offer. Fancy a mountain hike? Plenty of mountains around. Feel like a swim? Cross over to Greece and head to the coast. Feel like relaxing? Stay in town for casual strolls along the stone paved streets, tasty local dishes, souvenir shopping, and of course – lengthy naps at all the totally inappropriate times.
Quick snap around the Mercedes Museum in Stuttgart, Germany. Compared to the Porsche museum, the Mercedes museum is bigger and has a wider selection of rooms, including old prototypes from the 19th century and special vehicles reserved for V.I.P.s such as the Queen, the Pope, and numerous rock stars. Missing is the exterior of the Museum which wasn’t ready to be photographed due to the weather.
Photography assignment completed for Kartingmania™ during the span of 3 days. This project was interesting because photographing sports commercially is more challenging then it looks.
This year springtime in Sofia came with a special flower twist – thousands of tulips in some of the most popular locations in Sofia, Bulgaria. The Nishava entrance of South Park has been a home to colourful tulips for several years already, but this year the tulip craze has spread also to the centre – even the spot of the old mausoleum is covered with 22,000 Dutch tulips.

There are very few occasions when a camera ceases to work. One is physical damage. The second is temperature. Welcome to the Moscow set: a series of images captured in the midst of the Russian winter. One has to admire how Muscovites and Russians in general handle such intense weather.
Return to this annual fair held in Mallorca every spring, except that this time the gear used was completely different. This set was entirely shot with the new Olympus EM5 Mark II, and features images from an upcoming review of this little marvel of a camera. The long exposure shots were taken on the diminutive Manfrotto PIXI tripod which complements the size of the gear perfectly. All other shots were shot handheld and with a variety of lenses.
Bulgaria is a place of many contrasts. Beautiful nature contrasts with poor infrastructure. High end malls and restaurants are surrounded by public spaces in desperate need of renovation. These extreme contrasts can be a great source for street snaps but proved challenging for travel photography since there was always something (or someone) in the frame which looked completely out of place.
A beautifully renovated, bright and spacious top floor apartment in a frontline community, enjoying direct sea and beach access. Photographed for First Mallorca during the summer of 2014.
As far as top of the line countryside fincas goes, this one is an absolute favourite. Located high in hills of Calvia yet with immediate access to nearby amenities, this spectacular finca has everything going for it. Panoramic views from all rooms to the tramuntana mountains, a large swimming pool, manicured gardens and complete privacy. The finca is built to the highest quality, and tastefully decorated. A perfect home in the mountain. Photographed for First Mallorca.
A set dedicated to the emblematic Alexander Nevsky cathedral in the heart of Sofia. Most of the images were taken with a variety of cameras near dusk, with varying weather conditions. Although access to the cathedral is easy, it is unfortunately surrounded by a car park which is almost always full – making taking a clean shot almost impossible. The stadium lights which illuminate it during the night are orange in colour, and as a result most images online are tinted orange.
A collection of images taken back in 2008 while exploring Madrid. The (ex)telefonica building was shot from an adjacent balcony at peak dusk hour. The well-known Metropolis building scene was taken from a bus stop across the street, and is the most popular post-card image sold locally.
A small collection of images from a stroll around Palma during Christmas. This years decorations were mostly the same as last years, so some images were shot slightly different. The main shot was taken right after a heavy storm.
Theory4 wishes everyone a prosperous 2015!
Christmas in Germany has always been a unique experience. The streets glow with lights, the shopping malls are decorated lavishly and inebriated Santa Clauses roam around freely. Each corner hides a miniature Christmas market with ornaments, mittens, and of course plenty of Wursts, Crepes, and Glühwein. Shot once again on a mirrorless system.
In the past, there have generally been two ways to photograph fairs. The first is the annoying “I’m-not-gonna-have-any-fun-tonight-at-all” professional way, with a top of the line ultra wide lens and lugging a solid tripod. This method guarantees maximum quality with minimal amounts of fun. Awesome.
What to shoot on a particularly wet, cold, grey and dreary autumn day? Macros and details of course! A quick walk through South Park provided plenty of tiny objects to focus on – all fresh from the rain for an extra splash of moody water drops.
Bokehlicious Valldemossa set featuring the famous cyclamen bicycle and other decorative objects you may encounter while walking around its narrow streets. Most local postcards of Valldemossa don’t feature this bicycle – a shame considering how many artistic opportunities it creates for avid photographers – and what wonderful postcards they may be.
So you think photographing a fair is easy? Lets have a look at the other side of the “creative” photographic opportunities fairs can bring, starting with ride times…
A few sunsets of the Santa Ponsa coast area in Mallorca. Some required the tripod to be set in the water while balancing on wobbly rocks.
