Another year down.. I touched upon this last time, but now that I’ve been a decent amount with my camp, it simply feels like a city we go to visit on a regular basis. We have our friends that we see mostly there. We have our spots we like to visit. It become so familiar in a way, but never […]
Share on Facebook I was in the beautiful island of Roatan in Honduras for a friend’s wedding and was able to meet with a local freedive instructor (Morgan Guille at www.roatanfreediving.com) who invited me to join as he did some training with Iru Balic (Venezuelan freedive champion). It was amazing to see some real experts hone their craft together […]
It’s the Fight Club mentality. Ditch your amenities, be uncomfortable, beat yourself up a bit. It’s just a week after all. Many people question this pilgrimage but if you have gone and connected then you understand it too. We set out once again for this beautiful patch of land in the northern Nevada desert to be immersed in an environment […]
Share on Facebook Sunday June 25 2017 marks one of the most fun events I’ve been to in New York City. And the fact that it’s for the purpose of celebrating something as special as gay rights just makes it all the better. I was very grateful to get invited by a new good friend of mine Tyisha to […]
One month exploring this beautiful country was the perfect amount of time to take it slow and get a good feel for things. Started out in Colombo, made our way north to Jaffna, down into some mountain towns, and then to the south coast in Weligama. It was my first time to this part of the world and from what […]
Surfing is mostly defined, understandably, by waves. It is the most important aspect of the sport after all. However on a recent visit to Bali I realized another very important part of the experience: the locals. In this case I made friends right away with a few surfers and thought to make a series of portraits to show a bit […]
Bali was never high on my list of places to visit, as I had shared the same feelings about it that many others do: it’s very touristy. I’d seen so many photos and advertisements for beach clubs, resorts, and yoga retreats, and though it all looks fun, Bali didn’t appeal to me much as an exotic destination. Boy was I […]
After a day of palpable depression weighed on the city on November 9, 2016, residents took to the streets to protest against the new President Elect Donald Trump. I joined the crowd as they gathered outside his residence Trump Tower on 5th Ave and captured a few moments.
I had never seen the marathon before, and after this day I understood why some people called it their favorite event in New York. I decided to follow the race from mid-level Brooklyn around the Barclay’s Center, back up through Williamsburg, Greenpoint, and Long Island City (Queens), all the way across the Upper Eastside, into the Bronx, back down Harlem […]
Julian Walter Photography website Always beautiful faces, always incredible new experiences. This year was yet again nothing short of amazing. My good friend Brian called it “The Year of the Skies” as we had many clouds which lit up so colorful for sunrises and sunsets. As cliché as it is to say, the spirit of Burning Man can not be […]
Traditionally a Hindu festival in India and Nepal around the end of winter to celebrate the coming of spring, strong feelings of sharing, love, and happiness are present in everyone. This has been adapted all over the world, and in this case, right here in Brooklyn, New York. Some portraits of my friends covered in the colored powders.
Since I’d wanted to come to Namibia for a while, I’d seen images and read about the Himba people located in the north of the country. I’ve always found their aesthetic to be quite beautiful, with ornate decorations and the red skin tint for the women. It is a society that has for some villages adapted itself to modern luxuries, […]
The Namib Desert is main reason why I wanted to come to Namibia. I first saw it shot in a scene in the movie The Fall, and upon looking up the location, this became my top place in the world to visit. A large expanse of sand dunes sweeps from the ocean to sixty miles inland in an area called […]
I had only heard of townships before I came to this part of the world, and was very interested to learn and see firsthand what they were about. Between 1960 and 1983 when apartheid was at its strongest, they were formed in order to keep non-whites living near the city center but still separate. During this time, 3.5 million people […]
During my three weeks in Morocco I didn’t really get off the beaten path, but this place has a lot of beauty to offer anywhere you look. I spent a few days in Marrakesh, some time surfing in the south, a good week in Essaouira (which I loved), then a quick drive into the desert. I would really like to […]
Refugee: a person who has been forced to leave their country in order to escape war, persecution, or natural disaster. While reading about the ongoing migration crisis into Europe, I found out how much of the passage funnels through this one little island off the Turkish coast called Lesvos. People from all over, mostly the Middle East, are trying to […]
I didn’t spend much time outside of Havana, but the few days I did were significant in order to remove myself from the chaos of the city. One afternoon in a quiet fishing village to the east, a visit to a local beach, and two days in Viñales were enough to give me a small taste of what awaits me […]
Setting foot on the ground in Cuba is like traveling back in time. It is well-known that this country was built up fast after the revolution in 1959, and not much has happened since. My favorite thing to do when visiting foreign countries is to talk with locals. Only then can you get the truest views on circumstances rather than […]
It can be difficult to find good parties with the right energy. I had attended one of these last year and hadn’t been able to come back until now. Lots of clubs and events may have great DJs and music but you go and don’t feel the energy from the crowd. Ideally you’d get people who are there for the […]
We headed to Tulum for two good friends Brent and Ana’s wedding, we decided to spend the first couple days off the beaten path. We headed to the north coast of the Yucatan state to a little town called El Cuyo. You’ll find it on a strip of land on the sea with only about 1,000 people that was perfect […]
I got inspired on a recent west coast visit to compile a series of photos I’ve shot from commercial flights of the deserts. Being originally from California, we have the privilege of flying over these vast expanses of empty lands every time we travel east. I’m always glued to the window, fascinated at what might be below me. Here are […]
This group is straight up crazy. I had the idea to shoot a little series of the club doing their weekly winter dip on Sunday, and it did not disappoint. Air temp was “warm” for February at 36°F (2°C) and the water was exactly the same. To give you an idea of how cold that is, the American west coast […]
I’m lucky that my best friend Brian works for Zero Motorcycles, a company of electric bikes that are incredible to ride. Noiseless, emission free, and powerful, these things are a dream to fly through these back roads in the Santa Cruz mountains. Here’s a few shots from a quick ride I did with them.
This last Sunday evening was the fifth day of protests against police brutality after a court ruling in favor of not indicting officer Daniel Pantaleo for the killing of Eric Garner on Staten Island. It was smaller than the first days, and nothing turned violent or dangerous, but the energy was very much still alive. 6pm – Park Ave
