Browsing through Instagram accounts led me to the discovery of some remarkable artists, which opened my eyes to the potential of the city I was looking for when I first moved in (e.g. heraldherrera, jeromerafael, madrascala). I have come across a number of less known but spectacular locations within the city, many of which have been only recently built and opened to public, e.g. City Walk, Green Planet or Creek Harbour. Inspired by these creative individuals, I started watching the surroundings more carefully and paying more attention to the composition rules to enhance the quality of my work done at the ground level, which has a much richer offer than I thought earlier. I only needed to follow completely different paths than fancy bars and restaurants, nightclubs, shopping malls etc. Without a doubt, the city gains a lot in attractiveness once you look at it through the camera lens.
I have been passionate about photography, in particular in its landscape and cityscape forms, since the beginning of 2010 when I bought my first full frame camera (Canon 5D). Having lived in Scotland definitely made my passion more reachable with Scottish Highlands located within a four-hour drive from the town where I lived. I took occasional breaks from the landscape photography to visit other places such as Barcelona, Croatia, London and Paris. I really enjoyed city breaks and cityscape photography, mostly inspired by the remarkable work of Martin Stavars.
