About MAU

March 2010

Hello! I am MAU, also known as Miguel A. Urech. I live in El Escorial (Madrid, Spain), I've been retired for two years now and I have just got over a cancer. Photography, along with bicycle riding and walking in the country with my dog, is my main hobby and interest. I would like to be a great photographer and I try to improve each day, but I am not at all obsessed with trying to achieve 'masterpieces of art'. I am just an amateur who shoots what I see, when I 'see' it and where I see it, and usually without 'preparing' the scene. Photography for me is just a hobby with which I intend to have fun and enjoy, but without 'suffering' too much if I don't achieve better results.
