About Me

Spanish photographer, based in Bavaria, Germany.
Photography is my passion and part time job since 2009, I'm always interested in collaborating with creative models, talented hair stylists, MUAs and fashion designers from all over the world to create beautiful images.
I've started recently my little antiquarian book business so unfortunately due to the lack of time I’ll be doing VERY limited TFCD projects, but if you have an idea or are interested in working with me just drop a message!

I'm passionate about vintage, from victorian to 50s, so specialize in retro, pin up and burlesque and particularly enjoy working with models with their own style and personality, male or female. Apart from that, I'm willing to work in almost any area, from commercial to alternative, fetish, avant garde, name it.

I do speak spanish, english, italian and I'm currently learning german, visit often Spain and Portugal, and it's not a problem to travel to England and north Italy anytime. Willing to travel if expenses are covered, but for any point not between Munich and Salzburg I will ask at least for the trip costs.
Punctuality is very important for me and I'm professional, friendly and easy going, if you book me, you can be sure won't be any further problems or delays.
A Model Release must be signed before the shooting, thank you for understanding!
Only +18 models. You can expect to get a minimum of 4 high end retouched images per every look, sometimes more, depending on the results. Will never deliver all the images or the RAW files.
I accept most of the friend requests I receive, however it's always nice if you send a tag, comment or message before!
