Born in Valparaíso (Chile, 1979) from a very young age he knew that he wanted to dedicate himself to photography, at the age of 18 he began to work for Kodak, training in a photographic laboratory owned by the company, there he acquired his first knowledge, from the bowels of the picture. That is how one day he decided to acquire an analog camera and go out in search of images that would convey sensations, he participated in photo contests for hotels and venues, obtaining monetary rewards which allowed him to improve his equipment. He was also working as a photographer for a medical magazine (Medical Panorama) in his spare time, also in each edition one of his photos was published in which a story was told. Every weekend he sold his artistic photos at an antique fair, he was doing quite well and he loved to go every weekend to sell his photographs and talk to people who were curious to ask. One day he decides to go to live in Spain, specifically to Barcelona (his current residence) here he changes his style and opts for "StreetPhoto" added to the "CityPhoto" that he had already been doing, he continued participating in different contests, winning several of them or acquiring honorable mentions and second prize.
