freelance WORK EXPERIENCE
· photographer & DIGITAL ARTIST
Madrid, Spain · Jul 2005 - Present

My photographic work is mainly focused on fine art with a conceptual self-portrait thematic, photomontage, fetish and landscape photography. My photography seeks to be sensual, dark but sophisticated. In short, it would be a mix between temptation and art. Photography shows more than a mere reproduction. A picture only captures a fragment, a split of a second. It may be multi-faceted and mysterious or appeal to our most direct instincts. And this is exactly what makes it fascinating.

I participated in several exhibitions, including a participation at the Biennale Fotonoviembre and an exhibition at the Long Night of Museums in Austria "ORF Lange Nacht der Museen". I also participated in international charitable projects such as "Made for Japan" in 2011, all the profits were donated to the Japanese Red Cross for helping the victims of the earthquake/tsunami. A sponsorship by Datacolor (The World Leader in Color Innovation) is also worth mentioning.

My work has been published in:
Beautiful Bizarre Magazine (Australia), Kultur Magazine (International Photo Magazine), ND Magazine (International Photo Magazine), BEYONDall Magazine (International Photo Magazine), TSYM Magazine *On the Cover* (International Photo Magazine), Èrotiq Magazine (Australia), Iconic Artist Magazine *On the Cover* (Italy), Mob Journal Magazine (Canada), Art of Portrait Magazine (Russia), Imirage Magazine *On the Cover* (Canada), Faddy Magazine (Italy), Beauté Plus Magazine (Canada), Ultimate Trendy Magazine (United States), Elegant Magazine (United States), Femme Rebelle Magazine *On the Cover* (United Kingdom), Xpressions Magazine *On the Cover* (International Photo Magazine), Virtuosité Mag *On the Cover* (Belgium), Dodho (International Photo Magazine), Prime Mag *On the Cover* (United Kingdom), LTX Magazine (Italy), Lyun Magazine (United Kingdom), Moevir Magazine (France), New Heroes & Pioneers (Sweden), Vogue Italia (Online Version), Lysmåler Magazine (Spain), Citypulse (Chile), De Bezige Bij Editorial (Holland), Profifoto Magazine (Germany), Imser Siglo Editorial (Spain), Datacolor (Switzerland), Digitalfoto MC Ediciones (Spain), ORF Lange Nacht der Museen (Austria), Ko-e Magazine (Japan), 2bemag (Spain), Fart Magazine (Holland), Staf Magazine (Spain), Bak Magazine (Turkey), hacidMAG (Spain), Heels Magazine (Spain), TEA Tenerife Espacio de las Artes (Spain), Tartarus Press (United Kingdom), Postmediabooks (Italy), Periódico La Provincia (Spain), Hitspaper (Japan), Kleine Zeitung (Austria), Periódico 20 Minutos (Spain), The Khooll (International Design & Lifestyle Magazine), Design Ideas.pics (International Design Magazine)...
