About

Born in León (Spain), in 1982. I started to work as Photographer with local Newspapers and Agencies when I was in college, then I became Photo Editor in EFE Photography Desk in Madrid after getting my Bachelor in Journalism in Complutense University in 2005. In 2006 I got a scholarship to study Photojournalism at the Danmarks Journalisthojskole. Back to Madrid, I worked again for EFE and in 2007 I joined the photo department of ADN newspaper.

In 2009 I moved out to Central America, traveling and freelancing in Mexico, Honduras, El Salvador and Guatemala. I went to Haiti to cover the earthquake in 2010, and I was based there until 2013. During those years I spent one year and a half as photojournalist correspondent for EFE/EPA, and then freelancing and contributing for different papers and magazines, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Der Spiegel… and several NGO’s.

I’m currently based in Spain, but I keep on working abroad in news and projects. Lately in Turkey, Egypt, Haiti and Ukraine

“Picture of the Year” National Photojournalism Award 2014 (Spain)

“Enrique Meneses Prize” National Photojournalism Award 2014 (Spain)

I was awarded with the 3rd Prize in News Essays POYi Latino América 2011 for my work on the Cholera Outbreak.

I’m looking for a used BGAN with a working battery for sale in the U.S. I prefer a Nera, but I will consider other models. Please send me a text with your asking price and if possible some pics.
