About Having grown up in a rural and isolated cottage, Albert's artistically-orientated family served as the foundation and inspiration for his photographic passion. His mother a talented musician, his father a wood-sculptor, Albert's creativity was ignited at a very young age. After several years of questing after his own artistic outlet, playing violin in the school orchestra and putting pen and brush to paper as a budding painter, Albert first stumbled across photography at secondary school. Shooting with film at first, and spending many hours over many months tinkering in the dark-room, he came to appreciate how each and every shot matters, noting the amount of careful thought and compositional preparation that should accompany it. Carrying this fundamental ethos over to digital photography in his University years, Albert moved on from taking shots of landscapes and flowers to capturing stunning images of people in their various emotive states. And he has been steadily compiling a singularly impressive portfolio of touching and visually arresting human-centred images ever since.
