Joao Yordanov Serralheiro
about

Born in Portugal and residing in Cambridge UK, from early in my life developed a big admiration and passion for Landscape Photography, influenced by the proximity to the beautiful Portuguese West Silver Coast during my youth.

 

Although I have been a big admirer of Photography since a young age, only took my first steps into Landscape Photography by the end of 2009, however, due to life circumstances, paused my Photography journey a couple of years later.

 

In early 2022, I received a Camera Body for Birthday Present and a request from my Wife to go back to Photography, knowing about my lifetime passion, decided to resume my journey into the Photography world with my favourite genre, Landscape Photography, and also a newly developed passion for Astrophotography. In general, I like all kinds of Photography, so if there would be a need to put a label on it I would say I identify myself as an Outdoors Photographer.
