Since then, has worked in press with CNN (Atlanta), The Guardian ( UK)  and Corfo ( Chilean government ). He has also collaborated with local independent media such as Ciper and The Clinic. Wedding photographer since 2008, he uses his photojournalist background as a tool to get spontaneous, natural light, photographs.  In the last 2 years he has specialized in dance photography, specially ballet.

“As a storyteller I have the luck of being able to write and also take photographs. Sometimes I get to do both. That´s a good day at the office”.

TESTIMONIAL

I have 3 amazing fuji cameras; the X-T1, X-Pro2 and X100S. I use all three for my wedding work. I did my switch from Canon almost 2 years ago and I'm fascinated by them. I love how light, discrete and silent they are. I mostly use the XF16mmF1.4, XF23mmF2  and XF56mmF1.2 combo.  My favorite being the XF16mmF1.4 and XF56mmF1.2. They are super sharp even at their widest f setting.

For dance I use the X-Pro2 because it’s fast and more powerful than the X-T1. Sometimes I use flour or water in my photos, so being weather resistant is a great asset to me.
