Photography has been a great interest of Romeo’s for many years now. Landscape photography is of a particular interest to Romeo as he is very close to nature and loves to appreciate what is all around us without taking it for granted. Being able to escape to a place of beauty is a necessary release from the pressures of life.
‘It is not always easy to see the beauty in this world but photography has enabled me to look closer at the magnificence we often overlook. When I am looking around for what may make a photograph, I see nature and appreciate it more than I did before, which I find invaluable. For me photography is about being creative and capturing a moment in time that perhaps no-one else has seen so that they can also appreciate that moment for years to come.’
Romeo is competent with a variety of different camera formats from 35mm, digital and also large format 4×5. He uses all formats for landscape photography depending on the image he is trying to achieve.
Romeo firmly believes that photography is about finding your own direction; doing what you enjoy and photographing what you love with cameras you are comfortable with. Only then will your passion be reflected in the images you make.
’Photographing the landscape is such a passion and is a sense of enjoyment for me. I hope that, by sharing my photographs with you, you are able to acquire some of that pleasure too.
