How you did you first discover your love of photography and travel?
I was very young, when my parents gave me my first camera, at that moment I knew that what I wanted was photography.
Where did you learn your photography technique?
Taking photographs, I am totally self-taught. I have looked at many photographs and learned to study the great masters.
What is your most memorable photo shoot and trip? (Comment 4-5 photos)
It is a very difficult question, there are many memorable moments and special situations with fantastic pictures.
For example, photographing the Gnu’s Crossing in the Mara River; the incredible skies of Chile, one of the best on the planet; the sunsets on Easter Island, the fantastic Seychelles beaches considered the best in the world; or the silence of the Desert of the Negev in Israel.
These are just a few examples of the fantastic places I've been photographing.
What camera equipment do you use?
I mainly work with Olympus cameras, and I use extreme wide-angle lenses, up to telephoto lenses, depending on the type of work I'm going to do at any time.
What is your next project?
Now I'm working in a Airplanes Photographic Project Wings in the Night. The objective of Wings in the Night, is to photograph all types of aircraft and airplanes but at night, applying Light Painting techniques, even coming to use Astrophotography techniques, night photography, etc. To subsequently disclose and promote the actions carried out
