About

Me

When still very young, Johann used to borrow his parents’ camera to take photographs of everything he encountered. As he grew older, this spurred him to buy his first SLR camera, and in time, this interest evolved into an addictive hobby.
Between 2012 and 2015 (for over two and a half years), Johann was the Editor of the News Magazine of the MPS (Malta Photographic Society), "CLICK,"  with which he, in the name of the Society, won two prestigious awards from the Photographic Society of America (PSA): Best Layout and Best Technical Write-up.
He has also served for three years on the Malta Photographic Society's Committee and several years on the Competitions Sub-Committee.
Since 2015, that is, since the 1st edition, he has been part of the organising team and judging panel for the Ħamrun Local Council's "Capture D Festa" photographic competition.
Johann has also served as a judge in many International Salons and Circuits, several local competitions organised by the Malta Photographic Society, and other private entities.
