I'm a 26-year-old French photographer born in the south of Spain. After studying sales and communication with real estate as a major, I decided to go into graphic design and visual communication. I applied for the contest exam for the Toulouse School of Fine Arts, and I was refused. Deciding it was time to discover something else, I made the decision to go to New Zealand for a year in order to learn English and get to know myself better. It was during this journey that my passion for photography was ignited.
On my return to France, I continued my exploration of photography while working as a receptionist for a five-star hotel. I then decided to move to Montreal where I applied for a college program in commercial photography - 15 months later I got my diploma and won the prize for the best portfolio. That same year I participated in a contest organized by the magazine PHOTO and won the opportunity to have one of my landscape photos published.
On October 26th 2017, I won the SONY prize: ‘emerging photographer of the year 2016/2017’ thanks to a fashion project realized in September 2017 in Canada. My photography work is mainly focused on fashion, portrait and landscapes - and I love to mix them by doing on-location photoshoots to create unique images with surreal atmospheres.
I now live in Iceland and I'm starting a new adventure opening a creative agency called North Pole Studio with 3 partners, focusing on photography, graphic design, videography and interior design.
