The Story

My photographs are about seeing things that

 others  walk by everyday and never notice.


About the Artist

I am a Canadian photographer currently based in Manila who gets to travel the world and likes to share the things I see with the help of my macro lens. My photos speak for themselves and I want people have there own reaction and  feelings about them. Let them transport you to magnificent places in world and see the remarkable details of the realm around us. Nature’s color palette at its best, inviting us to take a minute from our hectic lives to view the tranquil and still beauty of our environment. Remember to take the time to capture moments of life, I do with the help of my lens.

My artistic journey started in Spain where I began taking photographs which led to a new way of viewing life, light and the world. I complete the same walk everyday with my camera, seeing the same subjects in different light, seasons and I enjoyed all the little changes from day to day. Change is constantly happening in a single movement, with a single shift in light, or with a simple change in one’s point of view.

In the past I have not photo-shopped my images as I what to portray the real world. Sadly I have had to start doing the minimal amount of manipulation to keep people interested as now most of the photos you see online in no way resemble the original taken from the camera.

I have published two books the first book called Treasures in the Sand, which is a unique look at the flora and fauna of the Kuwait desert, my second book Treasures of the Jungle is an interesting look at the jungles and views of Panama.

I have been lucky enough to live in 6 different countries and to visit 50 in total so far. I enjoy photography as a hobby and would like the chance to share my view of the world with others.

I would like to thank my husband and all my friends for their support and encouragement.

If you are interested in purchasing or using any images please contact me.
 
Best Regards
Andrea
