I have over 25 years of professional experience in the world of photography. I began my career by studying at the Image Processing Centre in Barcelona at the beginning of the 80s, and then went on to study photojournalism, and photographic sensitometry at the University College of Image and Design in Barcelona. I have also taken several courses to learn new digital software skills, including editing, retouching, and formatting photo files in Photoshop and Lightroom, and have started to acquire the skills need to work in the world of multimedia photojournalism by learning how to use Final Cut, a video editing software programme, under the guidance of Paco Elvira.
When I first began my career as a photojournalist, my previous experience as an elite swimmer led me to focus on the world of sport.
Although I have continued to work as a sports photographer, the start of 2000 marked a new stage in my career as I began to focus on events and press photography. At the same time, over the last decade my personal beliefs and values have led me to volunteer my skills, and work in collaboration with several NGOs, In April a photo report I had prepared on the problems of obtaining drinking water was published in Planeta Futuro of El Pais, and in December I began work on another photography project: “Water, Agua, Eau”. “One day with Pouline” in Tribuna Feminista.
