My photographic career began in 1989, using a Praktica BC3 camera with Prakticar 50mm and Cosina 28-210 lenses. My works were mostly landscape, urban and costumbrismo photography, focusing on local traditions, as well as wedding reports, using colour film for paper copies and panchromatic for black and white prints.
Between 1994 and 2005 my pictures were taken using a Nikon N50 body camera with Nikkor 18-55 and Tamron 28-200 lenses. Most of my photographs were taken with colour slide film, leaving negative film exclusively for wedding reports upon request. The most common subjects in my work during that time were landscape and travel.
From 2005 onwards, all my photography has been done using digital equipment. Until 2012 the cameras I used (bridge type) were Panasonic Lumix and Sony Cybershot. From 2012 onwards, the camera bodies have been exclusively Nikon, APS-C type at the beginning (D5100) and subsequently full frame (D750). The subject matter is diverse: portrait, macrophotography, landscape and astrophotography. The means have expanded, with the addition of study equipment for portrait and macrophotography, as well as a telescope with auto-guided and computerized mount, plus the necessary complements for planetary and deep space photography.
