Photography has been a passion of mine
since witnessing the magic of a dark room while studying film
in college. I then enrolled at the University of Quebec in Montreal
to attain a Bachelor Degree of Fine Arts focusing on photography
and video. I created numerous photo essays and exhibitions and
also worked as a photojournalist for the university’s
My interest in photojournalism
opened the door to written journalism; after achieving my Bachelor’s
Degree in Montreal I traveled to the Arctic and lived in Iqaluit,
I approached the French newspaper Le Nunavoix and the magazine
Le Toit du Monde, hoping to contribute as a freelance photographer,
and ended up being a writer as well as a photographer for both
publications, covering the Inuit people, their stories, culture,
social issues as well as a wide range of other circumpolar issues.
After my time in the North, I traveled around the world and
created a number of photo essays, while studying the Italian,
Spanish and English languages.
am currently taking a Master´s degree in International
Photojournalism and Documentary Photography with the London
College of Communications, which allows me to travel while studying.
I am now resettling in the breathtaking Colombian Amazons where
I plan on staying for some time until a new wind takes me away.
Graphic Design has
always been a passion in my life; I had the opportunity to study
at the Jorge Tadeo Lozano University in Bogotá, Colombia.
I have also worked and designed for Media Agencies, Advertising
After finishing my studies
I worked for Leo Burnett, Telefonica, designs and advertising
for Columbia Tri Star Films, Buenavista International, Guardian
Media, Pais Libre, United Nations UNODC, Mercedes Benz, Jeep,
Chrysler, Freightliner, Van Camps, etc.
After all this experience,
I discovered in Australia my passion for nature while visiting
some National Parks. Watching the animals, flora and biodiversity
in this region of the world changed my mind, and I dreamed of
creating a place to save animals. So, in 2006 I travelled to
the Amazon Forest in Brazil, Colombia and Perú. At the
beginning it was very hard to settle down and adapt to a different
place, culture and climate.
After all these years I
have now created my own NGO and joined a group of people to
start a Forest Reserve, commenced Eco Tourism in the area, run
photography workshops, and also initiated action in wildlife
conservation and reforestation. This includes saving and rehabilitating
animals that are in danger of extinction, releasing them and
with some luck seeing them free and wild again in the jungle.
