Every year the National History Museum in London has been organizing their annual Wildlife Photographer Of The Year contest. This year however, the winner for the Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year award, which includes photographers up to 17 years of age, was Carlos Perez Naval – a 9-year-old boy from Spain.
His parents are always on the road and traveling everywhere. In their travels they take young Carlos on all their trips and ever since he can remember, he was in a tent somewhere with his parents. When he was 4 years old, he began taking photos of nature as he saw it. It’s true it was with a compact camera, but since then his equipment has become more and more proficient.
Like every passionate person, he doesn’t need to go very far or use the most expensive stuff to do what he likes. When he’s not traveling with his parents, his back garden and the surrounding area around his house make for perfect canvases for his work.
