Alan Skyrme describes himself as a travel writer and professional photographer.

He is currently based in Sao Goncalo do Amarante, a city near Natal, in Rio Grande do Norte, Brazil. The State of Rio Grande do Norte is, owing to violent crime, one of the most dangerous places on earth other than inside a volcano.

Since his birth in the last millennium, travel has been in his DNA. Born on the edge of the Sahara Desert in Tripoli, Libya, he moved with his parents to live in England, Iraq, Italy and back to England for schooling. While in UK, not keen to stay in one city for any length of time his parents moved from Sussex to Yorkshire to Lancashire to Cheshire and to Staffordshire, luckily not forgetting to take their two sons along with them.

At the age of 19 he joined an international bank where, after two years of management training in London, he was propelled into a travel trajectory of his own that took him, over the next 30 years, to live in ten countries on three continents, visiting dozens of countries on the remaining continents (except Antarctica) in that time. His most recent role was as an internal efficiency consultant.

In 2003 he established a photographic studio in Curitiba, in the south of Brazil, moving six years later to the Northeast where sand dunes, camels, the nearby sea and constant heat remind him of his early childhood.
