Photographer, Architect and Illustrator.At the age of 13 I fell in love of Astronomy and the Night Sky. Over the years I've been looking to the stars and making portraits of our Milky Way from Chile. Since 2011 I am a member of the oldest Amateur Astronomical Society in Chile: SAVAL (Sociedad Astronómica de Valparaíso y Viña del Mar).As an architect and photographer, I've made myself a critical opinion about urban light in the cities around the world and of course, my country, which is one of the few that has a Lighting Regulation. Because of that, I've been giving talks about Lighting Pollution, using my astrophotos to create awareness and to show what we are losing.
