Since 2001 my work has always been linked directly or indirectly with the audiovisual
media. Generally approached from photography and film, but sometimes also linked with production and development of artistic and commercial projects. Thanks to my career I have traveled to most diverse places in the World, such as England, Brasil, Spain and Uruguay. My great expertise has to do with photography, lighting and digital image processing.
