SPIRIT OF A JOURNEY - 2016 Winner
Hello my name is Daniel, I'm 19 years old and I am from Guadalajara, Mexico. This past year I made the best decision of my life, as soon as I finished high school I decided to take a gap year and moved to Australia with some of my best friends, I worked a tremendous amount of hours at a restaurant so I could save enough money to travel as much as I possibly could. All with the aim of expanding my view of the world.
Throughout this incredible year I spent in Australia, I also discovered that I have a passion for photography and film, so I bought my own camera and developed new skills. The purpose behind my photography, film, and editing is to convey my feelings and attempt to connect with my audience at a deeper level. I always aim to spark something inside others and inspire them to get out there and see the world and what it has to offer. All in all, it is of utter importance that my work raises awareness, and in a way gets people thinking about what they can do to keep this planet beautiful.
