I am a photojournalist with more than 20 years experience, during my carrier I have been working in the main newspapers in Spain such as "El Pais", "La Vanguardia" and “El Periodico de Catalunya”. Since 2013 I am based in London and when I moved here I decided to shift my carrier to the Interior design photography. Since then I have been working for several interior designers and Estate Agents among different photography agencies and I am also specialised in food photography. In regards to my photographic style, I like to shoot spontaneous moments trying to avoid any orchestration, so my approach to events where are people involved is candid photography. In relation with Real Estate photography, I like also to show the houses in its natural light highlighting the particular aspects of the houses and is seeking point for naturalistic approach, but at the same time, I am flexible to adapt my style withe the partícula requirements by the client.
I love doing what is my passion and the same time that every day I am doing different jobs and avoiding the routine of other jobs.
In the past, I have done for 8 years press assignments and the versatility of the assignment that you do working in press (politics, portraits, events, social conflicts..) has given me a lot of skills in different styles of photography.
