I started in the world of photography and design in 2006, and after graduating in a degree Biology, I decided to undergo an MSc in Biological Photography & Imaging in Nottingham University.

As a photographer I specialise in nature photography and everything which it includes, from landscapes, animals or plants to what can be seen under a scanning electron microscope, as well as studio work, sports photography or social photography.

As a designer I create business cards, scientific posters, as well as books and magazines both in paper and in digital format.

After travelling to more than ten countries both in Europe and America I’m preparing to move to Bristol, UK.

Comencé en el mundo de la fotografía y el diseño en el año 2006 y tras acabar la Licenciatura de Biología, decidí realizar un Master sobre fotografía científica en la Universidad de Nottingham, en el Reino Unido.

Como fotógrafo me especializo en fotografía de naturaleza y todo lo que en ella se incluye, desde paisajes, animales o plantas hasta lo que se ve bajo un microscopio electrónico de barrido, pero sin olvidar el trabajo de estudio, deportes o fotografía social.

Como diseñador realizo diseños de tarjetas de visita, posters para congresos científicos, así como libros y revistas tanto en papel como en formato electrónico.

Tras tener la suerte de haber viajado a más de diez países tanto en Europa como en el Continente Americano actualmente estoy preparando mi mudanza a Bristol, Reino Unido.
