“EU in my Region” award winner

In 2017 I won the Europe in my Region photo competition organised by the European Commission. My family and I attended a ceremony in Brussels, plus the privilege of attending the 15th Regiostars Awards, the annual competition honouring Europe’s most inspiring and innovative regional projects.

“Silverkris” in-flight magazine article

In 2017, some of my favourite travel photographs were featured in Singapore Airlines’ in-flight magazine, Silverkris. The photos were also featured on social media and the company’s online portal “Silverkris Explorers”.

Article and social coverage

Visit Brussels

I worked with Visit Brussels, the tourist board of the city of Brussels in Belgium. My work included

  • Producing three pieces of branded content via my social media channels
  • Writing a 1000-word article advocating Brussels as a destination for travel photographers
  • Supplying imagery to be used in online and offline brand promotion

My article, “10 top spots for photographers in Brussels“, was widely shared among the photography community on social media. Within 1 week of publication the branded social media content had generated over 8000 likes across the three main channels – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram.

Thanks for this wonderful piece of content. Thank you again for the opportunity to share your story and your great pics on our website, and do not hesitate to send us an email if you come back to Brussels.
