9 Year-Old Spanish Boy Becomes Young Wildlife Photographer Of The Year

Since 1964, the National History Museum in London has been organizing their annual Wildlife Photographer Of The Year contest. This year, the best photographer title winner in Young Wildlife Photographer of the Year, which includes photographers up to 17 years of age, was Carlos Perez Naval – a 9-year-old boy from Spain.

Carlos’ parents are tireless travelers, and they always take their son to all their trips around the world. When he was 4, he started taking beautiful photos of all the nature and wild animals he saw – first with a compact camera and now with professional wildlife photography equipment. He gets a bigger lens every time he goes abroad.

Carlos doesn’t need to be in faraway lands to take incredible pictures – during the school year, the plants and the beautiful animals in his garden and surrounding Teruel can’t escape the “clicks” of this professional photographer’s camera.

I'm so glad that his family has recognized and embraced his talent! Not many kids get to discover these talents so young.

You're so right. And not all families support their kids even when they find their talent because photography is a very costly hobby.

Awesome...I think that this boy has very high intelligence score, and that he is not great only in photography.

I do believe that many talented individuals are highly intelligent, but talent is never limited to IQ. Why stir the fire? Enjoy his talent!!
