Ubud offers more than just a destination to eat, pray, and love. It has green hills, ancient and powerful rivers, terraced rice fields, and an abundance of art. Art is everywhere – on the architecture of a temple, on an intricately carved statue being sold in a shop, on the masterpieces in the museums, on the offerings on the streets, and all the tiny details that make Ubud unique and beautiful.
I love Ubud for the fact that it does not only look good but also looks good on pictures. It is very photogenic and romantic – making Ubud a popular choice for many of my clients to do their honeymoon or engagement photo shooting.

Jimbaran and Uluwatu
Jimbaran and Uluwatu are home to many of Bali’s best beaches. These are the area in Bali to find a panoramic cliff-top and the best views of the majestic Indian Ocean that you rarely find anywhere else on the island. As a general tip, I would always make sure that the client’s safety comes first and that includes checking on the tide before we do the photoshoot.

Getting a little bored of Bali picturesque and hate the massive crowds that seem to be everywhere lately? Bali may be has a lot of great places to take photographs but do remember that Bali always has many more places to explore! The trio of Nusa islands:
Kelingking Beach at Nusa Penida Island
Nusa Penida, Nusa Lembongan, and Nusa Ceningan are only a short boat ride from Bali, and better yet, they have not been exposed to the tourism boom as quickly as Bali has. And the landscape? Much better! As boat timing to this island is very limited, we have to stay for one night on the island if we do the shoot here.
