A day before I was due to begin a degree at the University of Bolton, I decided Computer Sciences did not factor in my future and withdrew from the course to pursue a career in photography. From Bolton, I headed East to China where, while studying for an MA in Photojournalism, I worked for a number of agencies, newspapers, and magazines. In 2007 I headed back to Europe, returning to my hometown Bilbao in 2008. Currently, I divide most of my time between Bilbao and Biarritz (France) when not traveling abroad.
I am represented by Panos Pictures.
Since 2018 I am fully AESA approved drone operator in Spain.
I’m not a struggling musician [anymore]. But I did start my career photographing musicians and other creative and talented people. And since Creative and Talented People = Interesting Story, that makes my work easy—most of the time. Today my editorial and advertising clients still want the interesting story. I just tell it through my lens in a contemporary natural way. Real life moments, just … better. That’s what I do.

Today I specialize in photographing domestic animals both in studio and on location. I have experience in productions of all sizes -- from advertising to packing to pro bono animal rescue projects. Using a graphic and modern approach my images are playful, humorous, and personify the animal subjects. For me, pets are more than companions who get the slippers... Although, I wish my dog got my slippers. Animals, wild and domesticated, give me happiness, loads of inspiration, and allow me to unleash my creative side (pun intended!). Whether in the studio or on location I enjoy the challenges of working with animals and their handlers. The experience is always fun and rewarding. And to answer your question, yes, I have tons of patience.
