About ME

I'm a civil engineer (and) a photographer born in Madrid, living in Zürich, Switzerland.

My style has a resemblance to my very favourite photographer Steve McCurry, but whereas many of his wonderful pictures are posed, in my case they happen in just miliseconds. Even portraits aren't planned. Colour, timing and composition they are all fortunate events blooming around me and I just arrange them as fast as possible.

During the last years I’ve been traveling intensenly and hiking/mountaineering much, you can see my library is full of landscapes, I just live in the best country for that!

I’m a photography instructor for the Swiss Photo Club Zürich since 2017 and gave several talks about Landscape/Travel photography.

I also offer private Workshops as well as High Quality Prints of my pictures. If you're interested please send me an E-Mail.

On my bag:

  • Travel Kit: Sony A7Rii + Sony FE 16-35mm f4 ZA OSS + Sony FE 70-300mm f4.5-5.6 G OSS (Here mostly pictures from a Sony A7/A7ii (both sold!)

  • My hidden gem Sony RX100 V - best quality that fits a pant's pocket

  • Bonus: Sony FE 28mm f2 lens for Street Photography

  • The Zhongyi “black knight” Mitakon FE 50mm f0.95

  • The heavy Sony FE 35mm f1.4 lens which produces very pleasing bokeh

  • A light but so sharp Sony FE 85mm f1.8 lens

  • and many old manual lenses. Pentax primes, Samyang, Helios, Tamron...

  • No flash

I edit my pictures with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom CC.

I'm vegetarian (almost vegan!), love animals, to travel, the outdoors, mountains and acoustic music.
