excited to have my prints back from the lab! shooting in #fes, #morocco was a dream. shot some amazing hotels/riads, as well as restaurants, for a luxury travel piece, however these shots here were for my own personal joy... shooting 120 medium format film on my beautiful #rolleiflex. can't wait to get some of these prints enlarged & framed.

i was recently asked to shoot for an amazing charity called muntada aid, who organised a challenge to climb to the summit of ben nevis, scotland (highest mountain peak in the uk). the charity was raising money for their award winning project called little hearts, which was setup to help babies that are born with congenital heart defects. all the money raised is set to go towards paying for life saving operations.

alhamdulillah the participants have raised over £45,000 so far... #muntadaaid #littleheartsproject #charity #savinglives #scotland #bennevis #mountain #fortwilliam #landscape #glens #highlands #getoutdoors #wonderlust #hiking #challenge #outdoors #trekking #visitscotland #glencoe #loch #adventure #travel #nature #lovescotland #highlandcollective #mountains #lochaber #lake #mountainlove #neverstopexploring

sulthan ahmet (blue mosque), istanbul.

luck is what happens when preparation meets opportunity.

i took this using a tripod cos the light was low. i used the branches on the right to help compose & frame the mosque & balance out some of the negative space. after taking about 4 or 5 shots using different exposures just to see which one worked best, i was pleased with the result. just as i was about to take my camera off the tripod, a bird flew into the frame. that was the image.

sometimes you can plan all you want but in photography, like in life, we all need a little luck.

Shot with fuji x100t
