  • ¿Es usted fotogénico(a)?

  • ¿Cómo empezó a trabajar en la industria de fotografía?

    At university, during my attendance to arts career, I stumbled upon photography, and started to explore its several types, period during which I was able to carry out several photographic coverages, among those, a violinist performance.

  • ¿Qué criterios debería tener en cuenta una persona a la hora de elegir a un fotógrafo?

    -A good portfolio (not only one or four pictures, a full portfolio). -Responsibility (It is important to have a good feeling with the photographer, in general lines I recommend a pre-wedding session so you can familiarize with the way he works, so you know if he is
    punctual, responsible and creative). – Good feedback from its clients.

  • ¿Cómo definiría el éxito? ¿Cómo lo mide?

    I think that success is relative, maybe an achievement for me, might not be so relevant for another person, is to be able to say one day: I wish to do, to have or achieve said thing, for example a family, work in want you love, understand that happiness is not given by thing but is shared.
