I’m a landscape and wildlife photographer, based in Cantabria, in the North of Spain.
I am part of the Canon Ambassador team as a Canon Explorer since 2015
I am finalist of the prestigious Wildlife Photographer of the Year 2015
My work has been published around the world and have won international awards. In 2009 I’ve published my book, Cabárceno, with the pictures I’ve took for three years in the largest park of wildlife in Europe, with the same name. My most recent book Drama & Intimacy was published in 2012 and has sold out. I published my first electronic book in early 2015 called Babies of the Wild
I spent 16 years taking advertising and editorial photos and over the past 15 years have been a fine art photographer. I have been working closely with Marina for the past five years and have learnt a huge amount being tutored by Marina. My work is very different to Marina’s, however, I bring passion for wildlife and the bush. I have also spent many years teaching people photography and this is where a lot of my interest still lies.

Soy una fotógrafa de fauna, de Cantabria, España.
Finalista del prestigioso Wildlife Photographer of the Year en el 2015
Desde este mismo año formo parte del equipo de Canon Ambassador como Canon Explorer de fotografía de fauna.
Mi trabajo se ha publicado en todo el mundo y he ganado premios internacionales. En el año 2009 publiqué mi libro Cabárceno, con fotografías que hice durante tres años en el parque más grande de Europa.
Mi libro más reciente Drama&Intimidad publicado en el 2012 está agotado. El libro electrónico Bebés Salvajes, publicado en 2015.
He dedicado 16 años a la fotografía de publicidad y editorial, y en los últimos 15 años he sido fotógrafo de fine art. He estado trabajando con Marina durante los últimos 6 años, aprendiendo mucho acerca de la fotografía de fauna. Mi trabajo es muy diferente al de Marina, sin embargo, también muestra la pasión por la naturaleza y la fauna. He pasado muchos años enseñando fotografía y es aquí donde me siento más cómodo.
