SCIENCE & CONSERVATION PHOTOGRAPHY
“You cannot get through a single day without having an impact on the world around you. What you do makes a difference, and you have to decide what kind of difference you want to make.”
― Jane Goodall
As a conservation photographer, I feel photography as one of the most powerful experiences to generate empathy with nature. My work tries to not only offer an artistic view of what I am living, and from what I am learning, but also to create an attractive and strong link between society and nature. For this purpose, I combine the power of images with the story and/or scientific knowledge behind them to open new avenues of understanding between our culture, as human beings, and our role as a key species to maintain and protect our planet.
We are in a time when every step focused on understanding the complexity of nature can lead to a piece of its conservation. Precisely because of this, showing the outstanding places from all over the world, the striking species that inhabit a wide array of ecosystems, as well as the surprising natural processes that happen every day, is likely one of the most promising avenues to raise awareness on the importance of thinking in nature before taking gubernamental, professional or personal decisions.
If it is urgent to fight for nature, let's do it with a camera in our hands.
I am a regular Mètode magazine and National Geographic Spain contributor, as well as Canon ambassador (Canon Pro Master; Spain).
