Scotland, United Kingdom
I began taking photographs as a hobby in Spain. I realised at an early stage the power of communication through photography and wanted to get involved in some aspects of it myself.
Then as time went by I got more serious about it and starting to take courses in black & white film and darkroom work.
Progressing on from there I started to learn a variety of photographic techniques, styles, genres, I also began to take interest in documentary and reportage photography which developed into my main field of work. I feel this is one of the most natural and honest way to communicate/present day to day life, therefore I took a specialization course on Photojournalism in Barcelona, giving me the opportunity to work with (ECOM) a non profit organisation, supporting people with disabilities to progress in their inclusion for work.
After finishing my specialization training I moved to Edinburgh to carry on with my studies where I gained experience in other photographic areas including commercial photography, fashion, social events, portraiture and advertisement during my three years' course.
This lead me to publish a small work in the magazine Buzz (www.buzzmag.org) from The University of Edinburgh and Street Life magazine (www.livingstreets.org.uk) a local charity from the same city. I currantly collaborate with the online Spanish documentary magazine Tiempos Modernos and Weekend Artists.
I have also produced a documentary book titled “Behind The Road” based on a project of an alternative life in Edinburgh, which has been selected as a finalist twice in two major competitions.
I have also done photojournalism workshops like the latest in The Balkans run for Reporter Academy, a school based in Sabadell, Barcelona.
On the other side I consider myself an artist too, where my landscape photography take first place. I work in both formats, digital and film and I can say the latter is my favourite.I do use 35mm and medium formats cameras and I still do myself my own black and white prints in a traditional wet darkroom.
Although, I have stopped of doing commercial photography I am still willing to collaborate on any kind of charity and NGO work if I am approached to extend my portfolio of that kind.
