I grew up in a small town. I went to Uni. I started taking pictures afterwards in 2000.

In 2004 I began working full time, taking advantage of every free weekend and holiday while liquidating my yearly vacation for bigger trips to other countries. I especially love conifer forests and alpine mountains.
I'm currently taking pictures of Kids and Models, check out my Facebook page for details!

Bus Stop, Volcan VillaricaBus stops are EVERYWHERE in Chile! most people use public transportation, its far cheaper and easier than owning a car. Routes travel all over, into the mountains and across the border into Argentina.
House on Chiloe IslandThis house was awesome! Those are Alerce shingles, much like the other picture of "old" Chiloe Architecture in this gallery. Alerce wood is like Sequoia wood, highly resistant to rot and insects. These shingles are also the reason why most Alerces have been logged. :(
