Makeup Portfolio Shoot – Sam Steel

Posted in Architecture, People at 4:30 pm by Warren Williams

Kat was chosen by one of her fellow makeup artists, Sam Steel, to shoot his portfolio amongst the backdrop of urban Auckland. Whilst Kat was directing the models, I was taking some candids, whilst also making good use of the light reflector.

Breaking free into Goa

Posted in Architecture, History, Travel at 9:12 pm by Warren Williams

Following the awful bus experience, it was a great relief to finally make it into Goa. Despite the traffic still being rather busy, the air was noticeably clearer, and able to see distant objects, rather than thick haze. After hastily getting off the bus in Mapusa, we were whisked away in the great comfort of an air conditioned 4×4. Angus’s father was kind enough to drive us by the scenic areas, including Calangute showing off the apartment we would be spending some time in, before driving through Old Goa. One of the main features of Old Goa is the Basilica of Bom Jesus, which is over 400 years old, making it one of the oldest in India.

Car ferry to St Stephen's
Just beyond Old Goa, along one of the country roads is a small car ferry servic, which took us from the mainland to the island of Jua and the mostly Catholic village of Santo Estevam.

Under the still prevalent Portuguese Laws, the historic homes cannot be destroyed. Only passed through the generations, with more recently over the past century many emigrating overseas leaving the houses to slowly deteriorate and add a great feel.

Sightseeing London

My friend and fellow photographer Michael from Los Angeles, dropped into London for a few days, after spending some time touring south-east Asia, and visiting some of my favourite spots around Cambodia. We met up for a couple of afternoon/evening shoots around the city, showing him a few sights worth seeing.

Road Trippin’ Sardinia

Posted in Architecture, Landscape, Travel at 8:56 pm by Warren Williams

After a couple of days exploring the local flavours of Alghero, Ayla and I decided it was time to venture off around the mediterannean island. With our newly met English friends, Adele and Hazel, who happened to be on the same flight and bus, we convinced them to come along for some fun, music and more secluded sights of Sardinia. With a quick check of the maps, decided to head south to the town of Bosa, before venturing cross country to Cala Gonone on the east coast of the island. A few wrong turns later, (sign posting is almost nonexistent!) and we had found some great beaches to relax at. The Italian cuisine continued to roll through, pastas, pizza, wine, before finding a suitable place to camp up for the night Рanother beach!

Louvre in Paris

Posted in Architecture, History, Landscape, People, Travel at 9:00 pm by Warren Williams

After our exercise in front of the Eiffel Tower, Peter and I took a walk along the Seine River, to the Louvre Museum to see Mona Lisa and other various art works and historic artifacts from around the world. Time flew in the expansive museum, and soon it was time to disappear to Montmartre in search of food and a visit into the Basilica of the Sacr√© CŇďur with great views over Paris.

Paris, City of Light

Posted in Architecture, History, Landscape, People, Sport, Travel at 10:30 pm by Warren Williams

Paris has often been referred to as the City of Light, since the early 19th Century, when gas lamps first lit up Champs-√Člys√©es. The weather continued to be great for us, as we strolled along the River Seine, visited Notre Dame, before seeing the final stage of the Tour de France. Following this, we watched the enormous street clean up act of Champs-√Člys√©es, saw a few people brave a Haka, and finally watched a stunning sunset atop the Arc de Triomphe. Another splendid day.

Destination Paris!

Posted in Architecture, Landscape, Transportation, Travel at 10:30 am by Warren Williams

After a days rest back in London, Peter and I were off again, continuing our travel and photography addictions with a four day trip to Paris. Despite living on the doorstep to France, it was my first trip there in the two years I’ve been living in London. Catching the 10am Eurostar service to Paris, we arrived shortly after 1pm local time, immediately meeting up with another long term school friend, Jason.

City of Dresden, Germany

Posted in Architecture, History, People at 11:35 am by Warren Williams

The city of Dresden has a long history, and is well known for the controversial Allied Forces bombing near the end of World War II. The face of the city drastically changed over the next 40 years during the East German socialist era. Fortunately, since the reunification in 1990, Dresden has re-emerged as a political, cultural and economic centre of Germany.

Wet in Prague

Posted in Architecture, History, People, Travel, Wedding at 7:56 pm by Warren Williams

Prague is a wonderful, beautiful city. Despite raining for practically every moment of our 36 hours in the city, a few of us keen sightseers braved the weather to explore the historical sites. Prague was also included to the UNESCO list of World Heritage Sites in 1992, with its great mix of Gothic and Renaissance styled architecture.

The History of Kraków, Poland

Posted in Architecture, History, Landscape, People, Travel at 9:30 pm by Warren Williams

The city of Krak√≥w was given World Heritage Site status in 1978 by UNESCO, the same year Karol Wojtyla, archbishop of Krak√≥w, was elevated the papacy as Pope John Paul II . Krak√≥w is also famous for it’s overruling in WWII by the Nazi empire, making Krak√≥w the Capital city of the General Government.¬† The large Jewish population were moved into the Krak√≥w Ghetto, where they were sent to local concentration camps, such as Auschwitz. A German businessman by the name of Oskar Schindler, used his enamelware plant as a way to save many of the local Jews. His story was portrayed in the excellent move, Schindler’s List.

Hungary for Budapest

Posted in Architecture, History, Landscape, Travel at 10:00 pm by Warren Williams

The hottest day of our tour involved walking the beautiful streets of Budapest with the temperature creeping over 37¬įC. Budapest was once two cities – Buda and Pest, seperated by the great Danube River which officially combined in 1872.¬† The Buda side is located on the western banks of the Danube, featuring the hilly terrain and historic castles. Across the river on the expansive Great Plain, lies Pest, where much of the style is on 19th century architecture.

With the extreme heat and dehydration setting in, Peter, Nic and I ventured into the Labyrinth of Buda Castle, where the temperature is a constant 14¬įC and 90% humidity all year round. Without a tripod, photos were near on impossible due to the dark conditions. Walking down one of the corridors the sweet aroma of wine became apparent, where we found a wine fountain.

Stepping back outside created instant stickiness against the still hot and humid conditions after 6pm local time.

Bratislava, Slovakia

Posted in Architecture, History, Travel at 9:00 am by Warren Williams

En route to Budapest we ventured through the city of Bratislava in the early morning. At just 60km away from Vienna, they’re the closest capital cities in Europe.¬† There is a great mixture of architecture, spanning from medieval towers in the Old Town area, to the splendor of 20th century buildings. Bratislava also spans the Danube river, with the castle prominently displayed on the hill – unfortunately closed at the moment for renovations.
