Born in Barcelona, Spain, I studied graphic design and photography at Massana School of Art in Barcelona and a degree in economics.
• Taking photographs began as a way to escape from life in fast line. After a trip to Kenya and Tanzania with my wife and the close encounters with the animals of the Masai Mara and Serengeti it came my passion for wildlife photography, especially in Africa.
• My interest in Wildlife photography grew and I began to know the great photographers like Frans Lanting and Art Wolve through their books.
• My great love for the African wildlife led me to travel to Namibia, Bostwana, Zambia and back to Kenya and Tanzania on the search for photographic subjects.
Finally I managed a portfolio of Africa wildlife but I will continue travelling to Africa because the
photo opportunities are unlimited.
All my images have been taken using Nikon photographic equipment. After using Fuji Velvia slides until 2005, I am now using digital equipment. My main bodies are a D700 (Full frame camera, fantastic for low light conditions) and a D2X as backup.
The telephoto lenses that I use are 200-400mm f4 VR AF-S, which I use for the majority of my images. I also use a 70-200mm f2.8 VR when I need some more flexibility.
For wide angles I own one 17-55mm f2.8 DX a 14-24mm f2.8 and 24-70mm 2.8.
Lately I have incorporated the D-800 with 36.3 MP and incredible dynamic range for Classic Sailing gallery and D3s with continuous shooting Up to 9 FPS for Classic Polo gallery
The softwares that I mostly use for processing my images, Nikon Capture NX2 and Adobe Photoshop CS6, according to specific needs.
