For the past four years he has been the host of a very popular weekly nature TV documentary called Travesia Fotograficas. In each Travesia show he hopes to educate and inspire people to love, protect and keep sacred the places where they live using use images, words and music to touch peoples’ emotional core. His simple desire has been to share his love and concern for nature.

As a nature photographer he has clarified his mission in one sentence: Para Conservar, primero hay que Conocer….”To conserve, first you must know.”
“Ossian is a profound teacher who teaches students to convey what they see before even picking up the camera. Often we would get to a place and just observe and fill our eyes with the landscape, our ears with the music of nature and our lungs breathing clean air and only then would we grab our equipment and take pictures. He also believes strongly that having good technique will help you express your vision and artistic passion.”
