Spaniard, born 1955 in Tétouan (Morocco), he spent
his first years of his infancy roaming the colourful market-stands
in this town, taking in the smells of all those exotic
spices available here in this extraordinary country. Later,
in 1962, at the age of seven years his family moved to
the Canary Islands, settling down in Tenerife, presently
still residing there.
Having finished High School he took up studying fine arts
and technical architec- ture, discovering soon, that with
the help of photography, he had found the perfect way
to develop his passion for artistic imagery. Since then
in his professional career he always had been anxious
to express his interests and views on his surroundings
with the help of images taken with his cameras.
He started his career as a professional photographer working
for local newspapers on Tenerife, where he worked as editor
using his photographs to illustrate his own articles,
most of them related to the show business and motoring,
not forgetting his great passion, documenting ways of
human live and various basic activities of humans, such
as farming, fishing, manual skills, etc.
In 1981 he made his first contacts with the world of aeronautics
as a pupil in the "Aero Club de Tenerife", and
in 1984, when starting as a professional photographer
he realised he could combine his job with his hobby, so
he then spent many hours in planes, and later on also
in helicopters, building up a great experience in this
line of imagery.
He further on took up travelling as a romantic adventurer
and undertook various ex- peditions to Africa, Asia, South
America and Europe as a photographer and also filming
with video cameras. The images he obtained on these trips
where to be the foundations for his own photographic archive,
and since 1989 he illustrates his stories and tales of
his experiences with the help of these photos in national
magazines like: "Auto Aventura 4x4". "Viajar",
"Solo Moto", "Antena Semanal", "National
Geographic" and other local magazines, such as: "Islas",
"Guajara", "Canarias Motor" and "Motor
As a travelling photographer he also documented his researches
on Berber pottery for the Tenerife Museum on Nature and
Humans and some of his photos from Africa and South America
are exhibited in the showrooms of this museum.
He also contributed to medical and humanitarian expeditions
to the Philippines and India.
Right from the beginning of his career as a photographer
his essays and articles, as well as his photos have been
included in textbooks on educational subjects of various
types, and press agencies obtain images from his archives.
At present he is working in documenting and illustrating
various books about the culture and the geography of the
Canary Islands for local editorials and also on some of
his own projects.
To get into contact with wider artistic circles he also
performed exhibitions of his photographs in important
local art galleries, such as the "Galeria Canaria
de Arte", "Cactus" and "Parque Cultural
Viera y Clavijo".
Further on he involved himself completely in projects
undertaken by the "Centro de Fotografia - Isla de
Tenerife", participating in all their editions of
"FOTONOVIEM- BRE - International Biennial of Photography".
In the year 2006 his images of aerial photographs have
been exposed at the Inter- national Centre in the town
of San Antonio, Texas.
The latest technologies in imaging and communications
invite him to explore new ways to present his works on
the "web" and to contact internationally well
known firms and to collaborate with important personalities
in politics, culture and of arts.
