Hi! I’m Mercedes, a Spanish former lawyer and now a self taught photographer currently based in Zurich, Switzerland.
I’ve always liked photography, but it wasn’t until I moved to Sweden a few years ago that I started to love capturing things with my camera. When I moved to Stockholm, I started photographing everything that caught my attention with my mobile and sharing it with my family and friends in Spain. It wasn’t long until I felt that my mobile or my compact camera weren’t enough for me, that I wanted to learn more and be more creative. Some years later I moved to Dublin, Ireland, and I got my first DSLR camera, a small Canon EOS 1200d. With it I started to learn and explore the basics of photography and its different techniques and, at the same time, I developed a love for capturing all the beauty that surrounds me with my camera, specially in the cities where I live or visit, the wildlife, etc. Some time later, I found myself with thousands of photos in my computer and I started to feel the need of sharing them. That was the moment when I started writing a photography blog, as a means to share my work and my travels and to keep a record of my evolution as a photographer.
Now I enjoy photographing the outdoors, whether that’s here in Switzerland or around the world, and sharing it!
Thanks for taking the time to visit my web. I hope you enjoy my gallery and the adventures in my blog!! I am looking forward to seeing you here again!!
