Can´t wait to get a … Continue reading Last Trip to Sumatra
Met Phil in 2010. I remember this skinny guy with a great style and a beautifull surfing line at Asu. After that I got to shoot him in the water at big Lagundri Bay in Nias, got a good one. Just a week ago in the Kingfisher Bay Resort he told me it is still … Continue reading The Luckiest Photog In The World
