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.
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.
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.
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 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!
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.
An image doesn’t always represent reality. Look for example at this set.. it looks similar to last years set. Although the island is once again lit up and decorated for it’s residents, the truth is that many people are on the brink of poverty. I don’t like pointing the lens at people’s misfortunes, so this set was made like all the others. Spain is leading the way in corruption, social inequality, and job destruction.. but there is still budget for lighting up the streets and hanging fancy decorations.
I was sent to photograph the cemetery in Soller back when I was a novice photographer. As far as creative assignments went, this one was very unusual. Especially since I didn’t even know what exactly I was there to photograph.. ghosts? As I battled my way up the one-way maze of Soller’s narrow roads, I met a little old lady walking up a very steep road. I offered her a ride, not knowing she was headed to the cemetery herself.
* UPDATED * VIEWPOINT OF SES ÀNIMES
In the municipality of Banyalbufar is the splendid Viewpoint of Ses Ànimes, crowned by a defence tower, the Torre des Verger de Ses Ànimes, on top of an impressive cliff.
Moments in Puerto Sóller bay and its surrounding areas. The Serra de Tramuntana divides Sóller and its Port from the rest of the island, causing this area to have its own weather throughout the year. The port is home to many local fishing boats, some which will take you to Sa Calobra and Torrent de Pareis.
A few quick snaps of the 1955 Chevrolet Bel Air parked in the corner of the Cool Divers Cafe in Puerto Andratx.
This last Valldemossa set is quite unique because it has been taken in winter. Aside from being late in the evening, it is unsual to see Cappuccion so empty – and open! You see this is the place to go in winter after all the tourists (and most of the locals) have left. Cappuccino remains open for those looking for a quiet place to relax and get away from the winter blues.
Possibly our favourite location on the island, we have spanned Valldemossa over 3 sets: Overview, Details, and Dusk. This first set shows Valldemossa from a touristic point of view, with the most popular areas captured. Valldemossa is without a doubt, the town with the most character in Mallorca, and we return every season to capture new images.
During the summer, street artists with a variety of talents set up camp at the base of Palma’s Cathedral, just above “Parc de la Mar”. From cartoonists to Spanish guitar duets, this area becomes a popular tourist spot for children and adults looking for paintings, drawings, music or simply pictures with human statues.
Home to local fishing boats and flocks of hungry ducks, Puerto Andratx is a port that is fondly remembered by anyone who has visited its sea-side promenade. Unlike other ports on the island, Puerto Andratx doesn’t have noteworthy beaches or nearby touristic activities.
Probably the most romantic time in Mallorca, Christmas time on the island feels a little bit like a fairytale. Dangling LED stars in every street, trees wrapped in mini-lights… the photographic opportunities are endless.
Palma Aquarium is a marine park situated on the south coast of Mallorca. Photographing the aquarium doesn’t require a tripod, so long as you have a steady hand and a good lens which stops down to at least 2.8.
