I’m a Photographer specialized in Music Photography. For the last 6 years I’ve been documenting the Underground Scene of Barcelona, from the International Bands to the very local. During these years I may have photographed more than a 1,000 bands and attended most of the best events in the city.

I’ve been working as Staff Photographer for Magazines as Mondosonoro, Go! Mag, Pitchfork, Heineken Música, Vice Magazine, Bido Lito! & Rockdelux, as well as festivals such as Primavera Sound and Primavera Club, and labels as B-Core, Outstanding or Sones. Hence the rareness of my work my pictures have been published in Newspapers as El País, Público, ADN, El Mundo, La Razón, El Periódico de Catalunya, La Vanguardia, El Punt, Chicago Cronicle, Avui; Magazines as Vanidad, Neo2, .H Magazine, Time Out, Rolling Stone and Websites as Wikipedia, NME, Vogue Italy, Le Cool, Le Look, Gizmodo, NowPublic,…

I’m involved in many different projects: the mind behind Snap! Clap! Collective, a managament agency/label/club, and the co-founder of the music label Doble Vida Discos, oriented to release international splits single records on 7″s. Organized concerts and parties and Dj’ed at la[2] de Apolo (Barcelona) since 2008. As a journalist I’ve worked for both musical and fashion magazines.

As for the broadness of my job I decided to open a website to reflect as much as possible, from all the different branches, not being a static website with a flashback of my old job. I want it to work as a Magazine, with daily uploads; pictures back published or hidden work, texts, videos, projects, whatever I’ve done and I may do in the near future.

I’m always up for new (sane or not) projects, so if you have something in mind that may fit some of my skills you can contact me, I’ll always answer you back.
