Being able to play an instrument at a professional level requires an unusual commitment, very hard to beat by any other discipline. All experts make their job to look simple. Occasionally, one would think they have more fingers.
I was born in Spain 35 years ago. I bought my first SRL when I was 14. It is my passion, my real love. I quit my job once, and I was taking pictures for a 18 months. It was the best thing I have ever done. To pay my mortgage, I returned to work in the water industry, but every weekend I turn myself again in what I am, a photographer.
