How would you describe your style of photography? I think about this question every day and I really don't know. I believe that I tend to transmit what I am currently feeling through my photos. I really don't pretend anything else.

When did you first fall in love with taking photos? I can't specify a moment or I can't remember. It just happened through the years. But I can definitely say that, right now, I can not live without photography.

Who/What inspires your photography? When I think about photography, in general, I think about Laura Makabresku. She shows a reality through her photos and her sad vision means everything for me.

What kind of camera do you use? At the present time I use my Canon EOS 750D (since one year ago) with a 35mm f2.0 lens, but maybe soon I will buy another camera. I'm not sure right now.

What's your editing process like? Right now I only use Camera Raw and Photoshop, I really enjoy playing with colours and lights. I could even say that the editing process is my favourite part of an image.

Are there any tips you would like to give to anyone out there who would love to create similar style photos to yours? Simply create something or try to, practice a lot. Without any practice, you won't get anywhere. Spend time researching inspiration in internet, poems, films... In my opinion, everything can inspire you if you're predisposed.

Who are some of your favourite photographers/models? Last year I worked with Maria Coma (@mariacomag on Instagram) and I need to say that her work is so pure and inspirational, Maria is a very special photographer. Moreover, if I talk about models, I need to talk about Bea (@beatrixarias) because she fascinates me. They are wonderful and artistic women.

What would be your number one dream destination for a photography adventure? I only need a place with a lot of nature to feel inspired, therefore I would like to visit any place with those characteristics, I do not care about the rest.
