  • PHOTOGRAPHY | Gardenia Watercolour
    PHOTOGRAPHY | Gardenia Watercolour"Gardenia Watercolour" is a series which started from scratch. My love for flowers and art turned an afternoon experiment into metaphors. As I often describe it, it imitates human moods. From pink to black, it explores 5 life phases. The series was exhibited by Creative Debuts London in April 2016.

    London, United KingdomFull Time
    Domestika is the fastest-growing creative community where the best creative experts share their knowledge and skills through professionally produced online courses. Domestika carefully curates the teacher roster and produces all the courses in-house, to ensure a high-quality online learning experience for everyone. Today, the online community is home to over 6 million people from around the world who are curious and passionate about learning new creative skills. Day to day, I work closely with the director and content producer, managing the necessary technical material and coming up with new shooting ideas. I am involved in pre-production and production. I also provide support and collaborate with other production departments such as Photo, Art, and Postproduction. In the studio, I keep track of the minutes and audio and operate the camera. I facilitate the production process in everything related to the correct operation of the video and sound equipment on the set, as well as coming up with new exciting ideas and content. My main responsibility is to help in the preparation of the shoots, facilitate the production processes, review technical and digital material, and give support to the different departments involved in a shoot. At Domestika, and in general, I am creative who has a great interest in both the arts and visual communication.

    As a Multimedia Journalist at Artefact Magazine, I was mainly involved in the editorial process of the print and online publication. My tasks consisted of taking decisions on which articles were included in the print, how they were illustrated, what went on the cover and managing the flow of copy from the writers through to the final sign off, alongside creating visual and written content: photojournalism stories, a short documentary series and narrative journalism written articles.
