The lucky budding photographer has traveled the world with his parents, constantly getting inspired by the sites and sounds of different places.

Naval started out with a small compact camera, but when he began showing true talent, his parents indulged and started buying him professional equipment. He uses a bigger lens when he goes abroad, allowing him to get up close and personal with his nature subjects. When he isn’t traveling along with his parents, Naval keeps busy snapping the creatures he finds in his parent’s garden in Spain.

The National History Museum’s contest has sought out exemplary young photographers under the age of 17 since 1964. Both Naval and the contest are an inspiration for young photographers out there, proving that age and training have no bearing on beautiful photographs.
