"Happy to present some images of my work in recent months. My team and I have begun to notice that everything is back on track, optimism has returned and despite the difficulties we are here better than ever.
In the images you can see how we solve different styles of photography not only with the highest quality, but also with the appropriate aesthetics for the subject and medium. We feel fortunate to have this talent and to develop it.
Also and particularly, I feel fortunate to work with the people on my team who are really some of the best in the world and much smarter than me as well as the celebrities who have made it so easy for me. Perhaps that is why our company is so rewarding."

"We are already in May 2021 and it is a great time to think about where we come from and, most importantly, where we want to go.
There is or should be optimism. The most vulnerable or at risk population is receiving the help they need and in many countries vaccines are beginning to show results. I want to think that the time has come to create together.
These are just some of the jobs that have been done during the pandemic. Despite the difficulties, these projects have been published in the best magazines - and with the highest quality. My team and I are really proud and grateful for the appreciation of our work. Here, in Barcelona, we continue to produce with the highest quality, the best resources and most importantly, the best results."

"I love people and beauty, so, when I discovered photography, I decided to leave my career as a scientist to dedicate myself to fashion and advertising. But, what am I doing here? That was something I had to ask my therapist.
I discovered through family, friends and clients my talent to empathise with people and form my “vision”. It is made up of curiosity, the ability to surprise myself, and the desire to establish a sincere connection.
I use photography as an excuse to meet different and stimulating people and places. Nothing is more interesting than a story and more suggestive than a point of view.
Art and beauty have brought harmony and personal fulfillment, prosperity and the opportunity to enjoy an exciting job every day.
From the beginning, I connected with the soul of people and found in their differences the raw material for my images. What I look for in the people I photograph is their naturalness, essence and desire to live. I cannot be more grateful to life for having this talent."

Title: You'd better smile
"One day my son wanted to know why the girls I photographed were angry. I thought, being young women, with such beautiful smiles, why not do something happy, global and relaxed. So we shot this series of photos where we wanted to show luxury glasses for happy people."
