Travel Photography: ABDZ hosting a Photowalk in Tokyo

Hi everyone, this is François here from ABDZ. I will be traveling to Tokyo this upcoming October and would love to host an ABDZ Photowalk. Would you be interested? We can explore the different neighborhoods of Tokyo where we can explore the Tokyo Skytree, Sensō-ji, Meiji Shrine, Harajuku and more. Whatever it is raining or not, it will be a great opportunity to meet some of you living in Japan or visiting just like me. Let's find a date (via Google Forms) and set up a checkpoint/time. You can get in touch with me via Twitter and Instagram. Let's find a date! Loading...

Travel Photography Guide: Stockholm, Sweden

Travel Photography Guide: Stockholm, Sweden

Back in February, ABDZ was traveling to Stockholm, Sweden to cover the launch of the new Volvo V60. After all the eventful-fun jazz, it's always a must for me to find time to explore the city, especially when it's your first time ever traveling to Stockholm. What can I say about this city? Well, every place we went whatever it was a restaurant, coffee shop or a tourist attraction; Stockholm is very pretty and this city owns the term "Beautiful Design". You wouldn't understand this term until you start exploring and after a few blocks, you already in awe. So I have put together a Google Map and added the locations through a photo gallery via Instagram, I wasn't able to visit all the places (short trip!) from my Google Map or people who took way better shots than me. Hah! Please enjoy and make your own memories! Here's the Map Short Disclaimer: I have created this map for my own travel and also based on my own photo style of what are the things that I wanted to see and visit. Use this as a reference OR a foundation to create yours. Have fun in Stockholm!

Cinematic Cuba : Travel Portrait Photography by Stijn Hoekstra

Cinematic Cuba : Travel Portrait Photography by Stijn Hoekstra

We stopped dead in our scroll upon discovering Dutch based cinematographer and photographer Stijn Hoekstra's moving portrait photography of his three week holiday to Cuba. Cuba is having a moment of great allure and with that there's really never been a better moment to visit. These images capture such kindness it nearly inspired us to book a flight immediately upon perusing as they wholly convey the uplifting spirit showcased among his diverse subjects and the indefinable magnificence of this unique destination.  Travel Portrait Photography " If Cuba were a book, it would be James Joyce's Ulysses: layered, hard to grasp, frequently misunderstood, but – above all – a classic." - Brendan Sainsbury, writer ABOUT STIJN HOEKSTRA Having studied cinematography and spending time as a camera assistant on both big budget and independent films after graduation, Hoekstra fell into photography after shooting behind-the-scenes images as gifts for the crew. This blossomed into a parallel career shooting commercial and corporate projects. But, in his spare time, street photography is a creative outlet that allows him to stretch himself as an artist.
