Bio   I am a photographer and film director born in...


I am a photographer and film director born in Spain.

After I graduated in Economics I moved to the Middle East in 2012 aiming to save the world with my camera. I started working on editorial assignments for American outlets, and a year later I was honored to attend the Eddie Adams Workshop in New York. Since then, I have been working around the world. In 2016 I was selected as one of ‘PDN 30 New and Emerging Photographers to watch’.

I have received grant support from the Pulitzer Center, the National Geographic Society, SEJ’s Fund for Environmental Journalism and GroundTruth among others. For the latter, I was a co-winner of an Edward R. Murrow award as a video series director. I am HEFAT trained.

Ended up not saving the world, but at least I did save myself from wearing a tie 9-5.

I am usually in the mood to make shit happen, so get in touch and let's create something.
