In memory of Jaime Mendoza Collio, young Mapuche killed by a policeman in 2009. August 2012.
My name is Ariel, I live on Santiago, Chile. I'm studying Environmental Biology and I want to specialize in conservation.|
My story with the photography began on January 2011 when aliciaSatie offered me her Canon EOS 450D. My child-dream was to photograph animals over the world, now I think that I can do it. I consider myself a photography student autodidact.
I'm absolutely in love with the South of Chile! (I haven't visited North yet.. )
If you watch my gallery, you'll see two main themes: nature (mainly birds) and protests. These are my two current "subjects on focus", so take a look on which you like ;D
These are my two passions on photography, sometimes I think that are somekind of "opposite", I want to become a nature photographer, but also I would like to be a photojournalist. Meanwhile I "become something"... I'm taking photographs!
