About me

I love photography, though my main occupation is web development. Dreamstime is my first experience -so far- with stock photography and I am learning a lot here. I lived in Valencia, Barcelona (Spain) and London (UK), and I have a huge collection of pictures full of memories to tell. But now I am trying to focus on commercial photography. I'd love to share experiences with you, so don't hesitate and feel free to contact me any time. I also accept assignments, specially if you'd like to have pictures of Spain, Barcelona, the Mediterranean views, etc.
