"A camera provides a way to realise a vision", says Michael Naylor.

Michael doesn't believe it's necessary to justify creativity, because people have different perceptions and he has his. It's the pictures that matter, you either like them or you don't. So he doesn't see the point in writing loads of flowery words about his work or himself. He's British and born in the North of England in 1945. Before emigrating to Málaga Spain, just before the euro was introduced, he's worked for ABC Television, Yorkshire Television, the BBC and his own TV post-production company, Sync Facilities. It was his aunt Hilda who introduced him to photography when she gave him a printing frame and some chemicals when he was seven. Later, he was enrolled as a Fellow of the Royal Photographic Society of Great Britain in 2012. He claims some of his works border on what is sometimes called fine art, but his others are something else. Michael does all his own giclées using pigment inks on heavy weight fine art papers. He says he'd like to be rich and famous - in that order.
