I was born and raised on the island of Gozo - the sister island of Malta. However, I moved to Malta in 2002 to further my studies at the University of Malta and eventually settled down. It was around 3 years later that I bought my first DSLR, the Nikon D70. My first photos were a lot like snap shots and surely they weren't perfect, but I was hooked! I read books and magazines, researched different techniques and experimented with the camera to always achieve something different.​​​​​​​
Later on, I started following both local and international photographers and I was especially drawn into long exposure photography. It is a technique where to make a photo one has to leave the shutter open for several minutes using ND (neutral density) filters. To me, when looking at a long exposure photo, it gives me a sense of calmness and tranquility. It gives a totally different perspective of the world around us by blurring anything that is moving: mainly the skies, water and people. The end result is something which we cannot see with our owns eyes and to emphasizes this even more, I tend to process these images in black and white. This whole process gives an even more surreal effect.
​​​​​​​Today, I still love to make long exposure images together with landscapes, nature (including the night skies) and city architecture images. I also love to travel to capture the soul of the cities as well as the splendid vistas that planet Earth has to offer.
