Malta’s top photographer celebrates World Photo Day

Malta’s top photographer has celebrated World Photography Day by taking a series of stunning snaps.

Daniel Cilia spent the whole of Saturday capturing incredible pictures of Gozo – using just his trusty iPhone camera.

He told 89.7 Bay: ‘All the photos were done with a smartphone and no DSLR.

‘They were all taken and posted immediately on Facebook from the exact location where I shot them.’

If you see a beautiful picture of Malta in a magazine, newspaper, poster or billboard – like the one of the Grand Harbour below – chances are he took it.

Born in Victoria in 1963, Daniel has been snapping away since he was 13 and is regarded as Malta’s leading professional photographer.

His work has been exhibited all over the world, most recently at the European Union’s Committee of the Regions head office in Brussels.

Daniel also has more than 113 books about the Maltese Islands to his credit, including his latest ‘The Gozo Cathedral – History and Treasures’.
