I can’t remember exactly when my interest for photography started, but I know it started because I really wanted to capture the things that I created through my other interests, at the time being, those were cars.
I bought my first dslr in 2012 and started taking photos of my own car, soon followed by many other cars owned by fellow enthusiasts.
Fast forward a couple of years and my interests have shifted towards photographing landscapes.
In 2017 I decided to sell the car and pursue traveling and photography more, I wanted to see more of the world and by taking photos I wanted to show everyone the beautiful planet we live on and all that we take for granted everyday. It’s not only about the far away exotic destinations that are beautiful but also the places we call home.
Ever since my passion for photography grew, the way I approached it did as well, eager to learn new techniques, finding my own style and narrowing down to what it was exactly that I wanted to do. This will be something that I hope to continue for a long time, I think that once we stop learning, the fun stops as well.
When I’m not out exploring the world I am working as civil engineer, a job that fulfills my other interest in creating things but with a technological mindset.
My full-time job as civil engineer gave me an entrance to take some photos of the companies activities, which overtime led to me being the inhouse photographer, providing images for the website and other marketing purposes.
Taking photos changed the way I see the world now massively, I hope my photos will tell that story as well.
