As you might have noticed, the updates on the blog have been non-existent in the last two weeks. This is mostly because I have been traveling quite a bit, first shooting in Riyadh for Ericsson and then relaxing for a week at the Red Sea in El Gouna, Egypt. I didn’t pick a camera for all this week (except for the occasional iPhone shot) and now I’m ready and excited for a couple of cool upcoming shoots.
Since I spent the last week in Egypt, I thought it was only fitting to post an image from Egypt which I took back in December while also shooting for Ericsson. There’s a funny story behind this image as I really wanted to photograph one of the feluccas (traditional sail boats) against the setting sun and when I got to this particular spot, there were none sailing. So we started chatting with one of the guys renting boats and asked him to go out and stay there for 15-20 minutes while I was taking pictures. He was slightly confused at the beginning as he didn’t quite understand why would I want the boat to go out empty, when I could just enjoy a nice sunset cruise, but in the end he really got into it and kept screaming back to ask if the spot where he stopped was good enough.
