The Yacht Week (TYW) 2015 + Updates!

Pictures from Week 31 are up! 

It's been a crazy past couple of months! I am finally back in London after three months of traveling. After my trip to Portugal, I visited Mexico, USA, and Croatia.

I spent a month in Croatia. During my first two weeks, I raved at Ultra Europe (Split) and explored Istria (Northern Croatia). I then spent my final two weeks in Croatia as the official photographer for The Yacht Week Croatia (Black Route): Week 30 and Week 31. 

It was an amazing opportunity to be able to live and breathe travel and photography on TYW. By balancing my work commitments, I also got to enjoy TYW as a regular guest. As I only had to produce a set number of images by the end of the week, I was able to choose when I wanted to work and when I wanted to relax. This gave me the opportunity to join other guests for meals, ride scooters across islands, cliff-jump, explore caves and swim in the beautiful Adriatic Sea. That said, shooting for TYW has also been one of the most challenging and intense experiences I have ever had in my life. I was struggling to find time to rest amidst a 8am-4am schedule and all the after-parties and after-after-parties. Also, the fact that many activities happen simultaneously on different islands, different bays, and different yachts, made it very logistically challenging.

I will be writing about my experience photographing for TYW very soon, where I will be covering both the glamorous and the challenging bits! 

Meanwhile, you may find pictures from Week 31 on my FB Page, Lin Loke Travel, 

Please feel free to tag you and your friends. It would also mean a lot to me if you could like my page! Apart from all the ad-hoc club and events photography that I have done, TYW is my first professional photography gig. I am looking forward to your support as I definitely want to develop myself further as a professional photographer. 

Pictures from Week 30 will be uploaded soon - stay tuned! Thank you :)
