Please tell us a bit about yourself and how you came to be a photographer?

 I started very young around 12 years old….i just knew it was the path for me…I studied in Paris for a year and then just followed my own path in fashion followed by branching out into travel, skate, surf, underwater , nudes and exhibitions…After living in various cities and traveling the world for 4 years i have built my house in Deia, Majorca where i am based out of.

Do you professionally work as a photographer?

 Yes, I do ..I work on everything from fashion/advertising campaigns to exhibitions and  personal zines.

Why do you like to take analog pictures? Do you shoot digital as well? 

I shoot both…i usually save analogue for special adventures  and nature.

Do you have a favorite subject to photograph? If so, why?

I love photographing nudes for the beauty of being free and natural, skaters for there wild creative attitude and palm trees and cactus somehow appear in my photos a lot : )

What’s your favorite analog camera?

Contax t2.

Do you have a favorite revolog film?  

I’m obsessed with the rainbow color film (Kolor film).

Any advice for other photographers?

Just shoot what you love and others will love it too…dont conform to the mainstream..also it doesn’t matter how small or big the camera…it should just feel comfortable to you.

Do you have any future projects you’d like to talk about?

I am currently in mexico traveling around the country shooting surfers and skaters for desillusion magazine..and i have a new zine coming out.. which features lots of photos shot with revolog film : )
