About me

I started photography as an experiment in understanding life during childhood. Both of my parents are involved in photography for certain periods of their lives, which gave me the opportunity to explore the analogue techniques and black and white photography. This led me to study in Journalism; I had my bachelor’s degree graduating with a photography project in 2002. After that, I had my MFA in Visual Communication Design. Since 2007, I’m working with worldwide advertisement clients, agencies and magazines. I have worked in different branches of visual arts such as art directing, motion design, advertisement photography, editorials, portraiture, celebrity portraits and personal artwork projects. Reference Agencies Y&R, DDB, TBWA, Alice BBDO, McCann Erickson, Cheil, Ogilvy&Mather, Team Red Clients Rexona, Virgin Radio, BeIn Connect, Vodafone, Samsung, Red Bull, 3M, Beko, Miller, KFC, Pedigree, Ikea, GQ, Elle Decor, Generali, Kilimanjaro.
