As a professional cinematographer, my specialty and my passion is creating beautiful audiovisual content that inspires audiences and promotes social issues around education, the environment, human rights, and social justice. Since 2005, I’ve collaborated on award-winning feature films, documentaries, TV series, music videos, video art projects and live event coverage, using various digital formats, cameras and styles in Europe, Africa and the Americas.
My approach to filmmaking and visual storytelling was honed in Ethiopia, where I lived for nearly five years working as a freelance cinematographer, photographer and video editor. Over the course dozens of projects featuring a whole cast of characters ranging from politicians and bureaucrats, to circus performers, small scale farmers, and refugees, I refined the way I work with my clients to capture reality all the while ensuring that the dignity of our subjects is always respected. My ability to observe, to listen, and to find beautiful moments in the every day, greatly evolved during this time.
Back in Madrid since June 2015, I am working on more fiction films and TV, where I am enjoying the opportunity to expand my creative scope and approach to cinematography.
I have a professional diploma in Direction of Photography and Camera Operation for Film and TV from TAI film school in Madrid, a BA in Audiovisual Communication from Rey Juan Carlos University and a certificate from the Huston School of Film & Digital Media on Cinema & Human Rights. Additionally, I have completed an official monographic seminary in Apple Color in CICE school and an official Apple certificate in Color Correction in Final Cut Studio.
