Architectural Photographer

At the age of 18, I combined my architecture studies with my photography hobby. In 1999, I started my professional activity in architectural photography, with the technique of an optical bench and always commissioned by publishers and architecture studios who wanted to work with me. Since then, I have published in more than 25 countries, 400 magazines and 70 editorials and I have commissioned photographs for at least twenty monographs and books.

I have published in magazines such as El Croquis, Casabella, ICON, The Plan, A + U Japan, AMC Moniteur, Gustavo Gili, New York R & D, Bauwelt, AIT, A.Mondadori .... In press with El Pais, New York Times, El Mundo, La Vanguardia, ABC, Il Corriere ... And companies have counted on my work such as Adidas, iGuzzini, Flos, Porcelanosa, Akaba, Malpesa, Cosentino Shucco, Klein ...

I love architecture, I love taking photographs and I still enjoy the first day of architecture, photography and travel. I aspire that all this is intuited in my work.
