About Me

My name is Lenise and I am a travel photographer based in Zurrieq, Malta. Don’t worry if you do not know where that is; most of the people do not. It is a tiny island in the Mediterranean sea, around 90km south of Sicily. I just love taking photos and see the work of other photographers who inspire me. Photography started just as a hobby for me while this passion grew bigger and bigger and going around to ‘capture the moment’ became one of my main goals in life. As you can see from my portfolio I love to travel and my favourite subjects are wildlife, nature and landscapes, especially water and seascapes. However I experiment also on other types of photography such as fireworks and night photography.

My passion for photography started off when I was 16 and I bought my first digital camera. It was an HP Photosmart M417 and I didn’t have any basic idea of photography. I just started to take pictures in ‘Auto’ mode, since this camera had no manual settings. I managed to take a couple of good pictures (in my opinion) as regards composition and subject choice, however I was well aware that its lens was not of good quality.travel photographer

After a couple of years this camera broke down and I decided to go for a bridge camera. I opted for a Canon Powershot SX10 IS and I think I made a good choice since I was happy with its features. Then I began to read about exposure time, aperture value, ISO speed, composition rules, white balance etc. since I wanted to use every feature of the camera. I was not happy of just taking pictures in Auto mode, and when I started to take pictures in Manual mode I immediately noted the difference in the quality of my pictures. This is when I started to take my hobby more seriously and eventually bought a DSLR; a Nikon D5100.

Consquently I started off as a stock photographer and developed my portfolio as I ticked off several destinations around the globe. I visited several destinations in Europe and after my first trip outside the continent I launched this website back in 2014. I later switched to a full frame DSLR, buying a Nikon D750. Today I can say I am really happy with the performance of this camera, especially in low light situations.

Nowadays I am a stock photographer and my photos are available for sale on various stock websites like Shutterstock, Dreamstime, Fotolia, 123RF among others. I specialise in Travel photography and have visited several countries, in the hope to widen my portfolio as much as possible.
