From 2015 to the present day, his professional journey has been characterized by continuous growth and exploration. Recent years have seen him mmerse himself in the captivating world of timelapse photography, applying this artistic technique not only to natural landscapes but also to the nuanced fields of real estate and property photography. This dedication to evolving his craft allows him to capture the unfolding beauty of time across diverse visual contexts.
