Sources of inspiration

There's been phases in my life where I've lost myself, where I've taken wrong decisions, where I've been surrounded by people that have sucked my energy... 

This is not the case right now. I feel like I'm doing what's correct in many different aspects of my life. Meeting good and creative friends has definitely helped me reach this point. One of these friends is Rubén Acosta, a real source of inspiration. 

Rubén, who's based in Lanzarote, is not only an excellent art photographer, he is also extremely good in wedding and lifestyle photography and even runs a book publishing company. Not to mention that he produces his own wine with relatives and grows delicious vegetables and fruits at home, among other personal projects.

Rubén has taught me that life is how you want it to be. It's hard work, but you simply have to be focused and believe in yourself. Thank you Rubén!

I was born in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria (Spain) in 1974. In 1992 I started to study photography in my home town. After some years I moved to Berlin to go on with my studies and get a wider view about photography. After working for many years in the design and advertising industry and having photography as a scape, in 2009 I decided to put more effort on my own projects. At the moment, I'm focussed in a personal search that's helping me to understand what I want to express, artistically speaking. Or is it the other way around?
