I am a photographer and filmmaker specialized in the Arctic area. I love to travel and explore natural landscapes. They truly inspire me to create afterwards. That’s why my motto is “Explore to create”.
I was educated in Audiovisual Communications in Spain and in Sight and Sound in Finland, where I have taken part in many audiovisual projects. Since I moved to Oulu (Finland) to study in 2016, I fell in love with the country and haven’t stopped exploring its northern, raw and spectacular area.
One of these journeys led me on a roadtrip across Lapland. During that trip we recorded a documentary film, that’s currently being post-produced, about the lifestyle of Lapland’s inhabitants and the way they understand life. We wanted to hear and know the “Voices of Lapland”.
It will be my second documentary film as a director: the first one was shot in Iceland some years ago and covers a delicate situation that involves the current tourism model, the natural environment and the whales in a small village called Húsavík. You can find out more about it at theshakybay.com.
Among my favourite plans there are the combination of the arctic explorer life doing a snowmobile ride or backcountry skiing through the woods and the comfort and slow life of a good hike ending in a hot coffee by the bonfire.
After Oulu, I moved a bit norther to Rovaniemi, the Finnish Lapland’s capital city, where I have lived and enjoyed the last two years by sharing my love and respect for the amazing nature of the area as an arctic guide for people visiting the place.
