"Curiosity and patience are the best 'lenses' for my cameras."

I was born in 1977 in Barcelona, and have been a professional sports photographer since 2006. I started covering the ACB League and Euroleague in Badalona and Barcelona. In 2010 I moved to Madrid and set my sights on Real Madrid Basketball, while expanding my field of action to football, covering Real Madrid and Atlético de Madrid matches. On an international level, I have been proud to be appointed as FIBA's official photographer for its main World and European Championships from 2014 to the present, in addition to my usual coverage of Euroleague Final Fours and Champions League games. I have also been working with Getty Images since 2017. My passion is black and white portraits, taken not in the studio but during the game. Adapting to the light I have and letting my creativity do the rest, that's my passion.
