W: Photography is like writing with the light, which stories do you want to tell with your projects?

R: It depends of the moodboard I create and it depends of the inspiration that I have in each moment and time of my life.
But what it is very important to me, is to transmit something in each image. I pretend that in every photo each woman should have something in their eyes that takes you and tells you something.

W: Can you tell us about the beginning and what has been your artistic evolution?

R:  I studied fine arts at the University, and I wanted to be a painter, and I took very different classes: sculpture,engraving, drawing, among others.. I also had photography, analogue photography with the chemicals and all that stuff. Was like magic, who the image comes out in the liquid and the process was so beautiful that I felt in love with it. When I finish the career I did a Master in Fashion Photography.


W:  Is there a fashion photographer that you particularly admire?

R:  I admire a bunch of them! I couldn’t choose just one, because each one inspires me in a way. Txema Yeste, Giampaolo Sgura, Mariano Vivanco, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Nico Bustos, Mert and Marcus, Miguel Reveriego, Paolo Roversi, Ellen Von Unwerth , Helmut Newton…

W:  By your point of view which are the main challenges to face to become a fashion photographer?

R:  The main challenge it’s you, the fight of you with you. Learning to be patience, perseverant, and learning to have character and a lot of mental strength.

W:   Which books and blogs do you consider valuable for a fashion photographer?

R:  The best background of images it’s Google (hehehe) We have everything there!

W:  Which fashion magazine do you love the most and why?

R:   Vogue will be always vogue. It’s the bible. Vogue Italia it’s a great book.. I also buy Vogue Paris sometimes, it depeds of which editorials are inside..
But I have also some other books that inspires me a lot, Vamp and Magazine Antidote are my favourites, but also ID, CR, 25 magazine, zoo, Self service..
