Growing up in a small village surrounded by fields, Carmel’s always been fascinated with wildlife. He started developing an interest in photography thanks to his family, and got his first camera when he was 12 years old. Restricted to only using his bicycle to get around, he gained a deep knowledge of the species close to his home. Besides photography, Carmel’s also passionate about music, and has played the jazz saxophone since fourth grade.
