Ray A. Condachi (born June 1961), currently works as a freelance Mechanical Engineer on
yachts. Previously he worked with the national airline as a non-destructive testing engineer.
During this time his early photographic skills were used to record, and document reports of
damages found. Later he became a design engineer, with an automotive company.
Ray is passionate about any sport to do with the sea. He is self taught in windsurfing and sailing. He followed his love for the sea, when he left his job to acquire an RYA sailing school. Sailing double handed, from New Zealand to Australia was one unforgettable experience and offered him great photographic experiences.
He also is an avid cyclist and one of his most memorable achievements was
that of cycling across America in 48 days.
He found photography to be a way of exploring his passion for various sports from
windsurfing, and sailing, to kitesurfing and scuba diving. When not practicing these sports,
you will most invariably find Ray capturing the action, using different perspectives of
shooting to try bringing to the viewer a more dramatic effect – be it windsurfing,
kitesurfing and of course the iconic annual Rolex Middle Sea Race.
