I have 18 years of experience as a Director of Photography and Cameraman/Director.
Thanks to experience working on international companies during three years in London, I have been focusing my career towards international projects. Thanx to that I have been working in more than 85 cities around the world. 

I am specialized in documentaries and Reality TV. In my daily basis I also work for commercials such as Pepsi, Revlon or Scalextric and corporate videos for big brand such as Grifols, La Caixa or RIU.

I have been awarded by the EMMYS with the reality show Survivor and AL JAZEERA with a documentary Corredors de fons.

Since last 8 years i have been shooting motion control Time Lapse. I own a 3 axes motion control 4k system, that always gives the special touch to the productions in which I work for.

My latest jobs have been 3 seasons of Top Chef Spain as a DP, 10 Seasons for the international show Pekin Express, and Pollution as a Director and concept creator. 

No matter how you hire me, Director, Director of Photography or Cameraman I always will do my best to provide you experience, creativity and the assurance that you will have what you need when you arrive to post.
