It success in a very natural way. I have been taking pictures some years ago for artist projects. At the end of my Fine Arts Degree I began studies in Fashion Design that I never finished.

I have made a lot of exibitions but the most part of them was not such as photographer, they was such as artist (sculpture, performance, installation, etc...) but since this year I have programmed some photography exhibitions to the future.

Do you sell prits? How do you make it and where can someone buy?
No, I don't sell prints nowadays. I have two different kinds of work, my personal work that I publish in my website and for exibitions and the “proffesional work” where I sell the shooting. So if someone wants a shooting or a collaboration they can send me an email to

What was your most big success?
The first time I fried an egg. I hate cooking and I'm afraid of boiling oil so it was a really big success.

Favourite photographer.
Ed Templeton, Juergen Teller, Olaf van Dod and my Dad.

Describe some of your projects
In my work I try to question the values of the adult world and rejects the obligation to leave the teen age and I explore the limits between art and life and the application of one to the other.
I work in some differents areas such as sculpture, photography, installation or design. I love every kind of work and I try to make it the best as I can, no matter in which process.

Your main concept.
Enjoy and be passionate in everything you do.

What is your occupation, job, interest besides photographyNowadays I have the good luck of being working in photography. I'm making my first steps in professional fashion photography, editorials and collaborations with brands and magazines. Also I'm begining to write my PhD in contemporary art and looking for new collaborations.

Which advice would you give someone who wants to become a (professional) fashion photographer?
Don't be afraid of being wrong. Make what you love and what you think is right. Hear your heart and let's risk, and be wrong again and again, this is the best way of open new ways and to innovate.

Your plans.
