Spring Everywhere!

I recently got the chance to work with a group of amazing, beautiful and very talented women: a jewelry maker, a pressional makeup artist and stylist and two amazing models. We did and incredibly beautiful photo shoot using srpingy-Barcelona as location and it coulnd’t have turned out more beautifully.

We went to a really nice park in the high part of the city and it was just the perfect set. There were trees and flowers everywhere! We did photos on different parts of the park to try and take it all in.

My purpose was to match the makeup of the models with the flowers in the park, to create contrasts and use that beautil spring, golden hour light. I did so many photos and was SO happy with most of them I ended up with more that 200 final images.

Hope you get spring vibes from this photos! And if you want to see a behind the scenes of it, you can check it out on this video I published on my Youtube Channel!

Shooting with A Plane Ticket in beautiful Barcelona!

A few weeks ago I did a photo shoot with my friend Vero from A Plane Ticket.

She is about to re-launch her YouTube Channel and we did some photos with that purpose. We went to a place in Barcelona near the museum of design and an emblematic building called Agbar Tower.

I’ve been wanting to do a shooting there for a long time now. It’s a great place with great views, nice backgrounds and natural light. Here are some shots:

I also did a short YouTube video for my channel  (you can suscribe here) where I show you a little behind the scenes of the photo shoot! Hope you enjoy:

I used my Canon EOS 70D with my 50mm, f1.8 lens and Adobe Lightroom to develop de photos.

YouTube Photography Channel

I’ve been meaning to open a photography YouTube channel for a while. However, I couldn’t come up with what to do on it. Finally, after some time I oficially opened my YouTune Channel!

I say “oficially” because I uploaded some videos previously from roadtrips and stuff, but now I now where I want to go and what I want to do with my YouTube channel. So, for the premiere I made a sort of behind the scenes video of my latest photo shoot for my friend’s web Vestier de Moda.

Hope you enjoy it!

I will upload more photos of this shooting here on my blog and on my Instagram account!

Purple Kush

Four months ago I shot a set for Suicide Girls with an awesome girl I’ve done photo shoots before! Her name is Giuchi.


Finally, the set is up for Members Review and we are super excited about it. We had a great time doing this photo shoot and we are happy our work is now out there. Here’s a sneak peek!

If you have a SG account, you can vote for her set to make to Set of the Day! I’m going to leave here Giuchi’s Instagram account because she is a lovely girl and I’m so grateful to work with her!

A Ballerina in Barcelona

It was early on a autumn Saturday morning. People were slowly taking over the streets and there we were! With cameras, music and dance.

There was a woman singing opera in a corner near the cathedral and it was magical. The ballerina had her music to dance to and we (me and my friend Vero who is working on an awesome video of this) made absolutely beautiful shots.

It’s the first time I do a photoshoot like this one. At some point, there was a lot of people and a lot going on around us (tourists, people watching, getting in the wat of the shots). I had to be very careful to keep the focus of the images on the ballerina. It was very difficult and I’m not completely sure I succeeded.

However, it was a very magical morning. We got to experience Barcelona in a different way and even found some places we’ve never been to before. Here are some of my favourite shots.

I would like to do more photoshoots like this in the future. It’s a great experience to keep photographic skills on point! You have to be very fast and accurate with each clic to make sure to get the bests shots.

Editing videos again!

Hello, everyone!

As you might know from a previous post, a while ago I got bit by the “video” bug. By working on some projects with close friends that do amazing videos, curiosity hit me and I got fixed with the idea of learning how to do video.

The first thing I recorded was on the day we went to get Mango. I shot everything with my Samsung Galaxy Camera because at the moment it was the only camera I had that shot video. For personal reasons that I will explain in an upcoming post, I haven’t edited that video until now.

Nos it’s ready and I will love to share it with you! Hope you like it 🙂

I used Adobe Premier to edit and the amazing help of my friends Vero and Sergio!

Ballet at the beach

Photographing a ballerina has been a dream since a long time ago.

When I was studying photography back in Venezuela at Roberto Mata Taller de Fotografía  one of my teachers showed us the work of a photographer who shot the ballerinas at a studio in New York (sadly I can’t remember ir or find it anywhere), and I was hooked by it.

Since that day, I always wanted to photograph a ballerina.

A few months ago I got introduced to Claudia. She is a ballerina from Venezuela and we did a photo shoot filled with magic! Here are some of my favourite shots:

She was so graceful and made my work so easy. The sunlight worked in our favor and I managed to give the photos a really soft look and feel.

It was a photo shoot filled with peace and sea breeze. Hope is the first of many to come :).

Have a beautiful week, everyone!

My first publication!

A few months ago a dear friend who is a YouTuber (a very good one, by the way!) told me that a magazine wanted to interview her. She needed a few photos to send along with her answers and she asked me if I wanted to do a photo shoot with her.

Of course I said yes.

Yesterday the magazine came out!

This is my first published photo ever! I can’t even explain how excited I am. It’s called Tendencia, and it runs in Venezuela, Miami, Panama and Aruba. I just want to thank my friend, Vero for this.

In the world of photography, as in the world of many other arts and professions, it’s very difficult to get opportunities like this one.

Yes! That’s my name right there! Huhu, I’m so happy. You can read the complete interview in this link.

Also, it would be really cool if you visit my friend’s YouTube channel! It’s called A Plane Ticket and she makes these great videos talking about life as an immigrant. She gives tips, advices and talks about her personal experience.

We are also working together in a bunch of cool projects and I will be soon posting about those too!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

Latest work: Otem’s Defiance

Last week I went out with a friend to do a shooting for a very cool indie video game company here in Barcelona called HyperBerry Games. They are about to launch their first title called Otem’s Defiance and they wanted a team that helped them develop their corporate image and marketing strategy. So I joined forces with my friend and started working!

Otem’s Defiance Concept Art

It’s the first time I participate in a project of this sort. Most of the photography I’ve done has been more personal. I’ve never done “corporate”photography. So, at first, I was a little scared, because I wasn’t very sure what angle would I take on this.

So, when I got there and saw the location, I decided to try and translate my usual style to these photos as well. I started looking around for interesting elements to incorporate in the shots, such as plants like the photo above and make each frame more interesting.

I focused on capturing specific elements that would show the work and personality of each member involved with the project.

We are still working together and very cool things are coming! You can check out the trailer of the game by clicking this link.


Determined, persistent and caring

It takes determination to completely change your life.

It takes persistence to achieve your goals.

And you’ll only get there by caring for yourself and those you love.

Have a beautiful week!

This is my friend Vero. She is a very succesful Youtuber thanks to her determination, persistence and caring attitud. I have had the opportunity to do great shots of her in several opportunities! We always have so much fun and I think that translatesd to the final result.
