The year 2000 was running its course when he bought his first camera by chance, but decided to learn how to use it by signing on a three months length course. Then he felt caught by the magic of light as a path of expression.

Later, he studied at IEFC (Barcelona), specializing in the field of fashion and nude photography, Even though, in former years photojournalism also attracted his attention, once he saw the shocking photography by Sebastiao Salgado and the visual poetry by Robert Doisneau.

He had to combine his photography education with his job, a job which wasn’t related to photography; and though he never expected to be a photographer, nowadays it occupies his time, he’s trying to show his visual philosophy in both specialities: fashion photography and portrait, using the classic masters Jean Loup Sieff and Paolo Roversi as his influences.
