The hermitage, together with the vertiginous stairs, form part of the Gaztelugatxe rock, which emerges from the water as if it were a castle. And when you are almost going to turn around because the storm is on you, the unexpected happens, the magical. That is why (in addition to many other things) I love photography... Few places on the Basque coast contain as much magic as the Gaztelugatxe rock.

It was back in 2006 when my first SLR camera came into my hands. It was then that my passion for photography began. Mostly self-taught, I took several training courses, which have helped me to acquire knowledge and a workflow, which I am trying to improve every day. Currently I combine my profession with this passion, which has become a way of life. It is the reason why I take my camera wherever I go, to try to capture those seconds and share my vision of the world through my photographs, some of them have been awarded in various national e international competitions.
