I am a Landscape and Night Sky Photographer, as well as a photo educator based in Malta, where I live with my wife and two children.
My passion for photography started way back in 2009 when I bought my first DSLR camera, a canonb 500D. Little did I know at that time this "toy" would help me find my true calling. In search, I delved into the magical art of landscape photography, where my I am in my element. Nature plays a vital role. It embellishes barren landscapes with sheer and unequivocal beauty. I am truly blessed to live in such a beautiful island where scenery and climate intertwine to produce such compelling aesthetics.
My photographs have been featured on books, stamps and calendars. I also like to share my experiences through workshops specialising in landscape photography.
Years have flown by. Yet I am still consumed by the desire to capture that " perfect shot". I am still in search for that fleeting moment of glory, which crosses one's path very few times during a lifetime. I still truly believe that my best shots are ahead of me.

A Throwback from 2009 when I bought my first DSLR camera.
A custom made chopper from Big Bear Choppers U.S, owned by a friend of mine was my first ever photo shoot, and I decided to capture all the images at the lovely greenery landscape of Pembroke.
Once again, these are images from 2009.
Popeye's village area is one of the most photographed landscapes of Malta and it's the perfect location for practicing sunset photography.
There are so many interesting things to see in my website,
