Neil Youngson

Interior photographer
Mérida, Yucatán, México

I'm Neil, a Brit who settled in Mérida in 2010. Photography has been a lifelong hobby and creative outlet, an antidote to the logical discipline of a career in IT. I don't have the skills to paint or draw, but with a camera I can, at least sometimes, reveal the beauty in the world around us, show everyday scenes in a new light. Like any artistic endeavour photography is a lifelong pursuit and I'm always learning and improving, and that keeps it fun and interesting.

Since coming to Merida I've had the opportunity to photograph many houses, more than 200, you'll find a small selection of them on this site. It's something that I love to do - I've long been interested in architecture and design. This city provides many expats with the opportunity to design and renovate an old property, or build a new one from scratch, something most could not afford to do in their home countries. This gives interior photography here an extra dimension as the houses I photograph are often unique, a realisation of the owners' tastes and dreams.

If you have just completed a renovation, or wish to sell or rent your home, a good set of photographs can make all the difference. If you'd like to use my services please contact me via the Contact link on the menu. 

I look forward to hearing from you.
