I'm from Burgos (Spain); I was always the one in charge of taking the photos and videos since I was a child, during the trips that I did with my family, although my true passion was the bikes.
I've been riding bikes since I was six and my life had always revolved around BMX, even up to the tragic events in 2002 in which I suffered a serious injury practicing the sport. Due to this I found myself purchasing a camera so that I could immortalize some of my mates' best stunts.
As a photographer, my development has been self-taught, always devouring all and any BMX magazines I could get my hands on. At first, I was heavily influenced by Rob Dolecki, Jeff Zielinski, Richy Adam and Vince Perraud among others, but this list has grown in size, spreading over to other styles and eventually blossoming into my own personal brand. It didn't take long for me to figure out that photography was my calling and that I had some sort of sixth sense that allowed me to precisely capture the best moments. For these past years I've dedicated myself wholeheartedly to finding the best places for the best pictures, those which I would have loved to take a part of if I could still ride a bike.
I've been fortunate enough to collaborate with some of the most well-known riders, magazines and BMX brands but I've always had a thing for contests; hunting for the most impossible yet perfect picture, a quite motivating task.
