My name's Gary Ottley - hence the name 'OttoPhoto' (get it?). I come from Trinidad and Tobago, in the West Indies.
I was born on March 24th, 1970 (Whoa! Look at the size of that head!).
That makes me an Aries, and they say Arians are passionate people (among other things). I don't dig up in horoscopes, but people who know me would say that I'm passionate about a bunch of things.
I've spent most of my thirty-odd years in the Caribbean, and spent three years in the great city of Boston. I got my Bachelor's degree (in Economics and Management, no less - even though I slept through ALL of my Econ classes and a spent a good portion of all other classes in one form of daydream or another) from the University of the West Indies in Cave Hill, Barbados.
Incidentally, Barbados was a great place to go to school. I spent many an afternoon on the beach which was 10 minutes walk from campus. And alcohol was cheap and plentiful. The classes, however - that's something else (see preceding paragraph).
I was fortunate enough to go to the U.S. to do an MBA - as you can see from the picture on the left, Babson College in Wellesley, Massachusetts proved to be a good temporary home for this wayward soul. I thoroughly enjoyed my 2 years there.
After working in Massachusetts for a while, I returned to Trinidad in late 1998 and have been here ever since. Now I work in the consulting practice in the Caribbean branch of one of the Big Six companies (or is it Big Five now? I can't remember).
Sometimes I wonder how I ended up in the type of company I thought I'd never work in - it isn't bad, and it pays the bills. For now.
I could do with less reports to write though.

Hopefully you'll enjoy checking out my photographs. While you're here, take a look at my random musings; you might find something amusing, or something to disagree with. Either is cool - let me know if anything pleases you or raises your ire enough for you to e-mail me!

And check out these facts about me! I call them INSIGNIFICA, since they really are just arbitrary points about me and my life, and don't have anything to do with my photography.
