I’m a Spanish-born photographer and filmmaker whose work is known for its imaginative and original slant on subjects.

With over 30 years experience of shooting on location and in the studio for editorial, design, and advertising clients in the UK and worldwide, I approach each job with a fresh perspective and the highest attention to detail.

My work is about capturing both portrait and lifestyle imagery by spotting the unusual in the world and capturing unique moments in time. 

I enjoy taking photos of candid, everyday observations of the world and the people around me, focusing on finding the beauty in the mundane and celebrating human ingenuity and real life stories, creating positive and funny images. Regardless of the location or lighting scenario for each project, I love coming up with inventive and spontaneous ideas.

With my portrait photography, I like to inject my sense of humour which helps build a connection to the people who are sitting for me, capturing something both distinctive and natural.

I like to use the same approach to filmmaking as I do to my stills, whether they’re promotional videos or short films. 

I directed my first short film The Beast of Romney Marsh, a comedy, which has gone on to win several awards on the film festival circuit in 2021.

My clients have included BT, Oracle, Canon, GSK, Unilever, Virgin, Vodafone and Diageo and my work has won awards from AOP, Communication Arts, Color Awards and Design Week.

Snow Globe Studio


Snow Globe Studio

Glassworks, Mill Bay
CT20 1JG


I’m based in Folkestone, Kent and work from a large daylight studio set in the middle of the Creative Quarter. This is where I take most of my studio portraits and where I try out new creative ideas. It’s also the place I display the millions of Snow Globes I’ve collected from all over the world during my many years of traveling for work.

The regeneration of Folkestone makes it a great place to be based, full of history, cultural activities and new business start-ups. Having a studio in the center of town means I get to meet and chat with lots of people, often collaborating with them on new projects. It’s also commutable to London where a lot of my shoots take place.

The studio, which is also available for hire, is perfect for production meetings, wardrobe fittings, castings and the occasional wrap party!
