THE ARAUCARIA IS A CONIFEROUS TREE ORIGINAL IN SOUTH AMERICA, BUT IN THE CANARY ISLANDS (SPAIN), my place of residence, HAS BEEN ROOTED BY ITS FAVORABLE CLIMATE CONDITIONS. THE PHOTO IS TAKEN IN A VILLAGE IN THE NORTH OF THE ISLAND OF TENERIFE AND IN IT YOU CAN SEE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A BRANCH OF THIS TREE

I am a photographer based in Tenerife (Canary Islands, Spain). I specially like taking pictures of architecture and portraits. I started taking photographs in 2004, and during the past years I have dedicated myself to perfecting my training in Photography and treatment of images with Photoshop. I have made several individual exhibitions, basically of architectural elements, portraits and travel photography. I have traveled taking photos throughout most of the European continent. Last year I made a trip to Cambodia where I was able to develop a project to photograph its smiling inhabitants.
