    PROFILE
    I am a creative Director of Photography. My Arts Studies in Europe
    have been many years looking at the work of so many painters, sculptors,
    photographers, which have had so much influence on me and from whom I have
    learnt so much. I think my work joins the art world with filmmaking world.
    I try to separate my photography from conventionalisms, making
    something with a particular style, looking for original atmospheres at the
    same time that they are believables for the audience. I am very committed
    and very passionate with my work. Each project is a challenge for me.
    I am a sociable person who enjoys working as a team meanwhile carrying
    out a personal style.
    Some of the projects in wich I have participated have been selected in
    films festivals as: Cannes, Zinemaldia-Festival de San Sebastian, Seattle,
    Toronto, Clermond Ferrant, LALLIF,HollyShort Film Festiva,Trieste, London,
    etc.
