Landscape photography was my first venture in photography when I started taking photos eight years ago. So when I moved to Mexico a year later, in 2010, I took a lot of photos of Lake Chapala and sunsets when I first got here.

What better way to avoid having to interact with the locals and ask to take their photos — my Spanish was barely beyond the first year of high school anyway.

The lucky thing, for a landscape photographer, is that I chose to move to one of the most beautiful places in Mexico, which makes an introverted landscape photographer’s life almost all too easy.
