I started making photos when an old compact digital Olympus camera of my father arrived in my hands when I was 15 years old. One year later, I started to cover some national races at the Circuit de Catalunya, that will soon become my second home.
I spend days and days shooting at this track, in all the possible competitions, this hobbie started to be a reality when I began studying Photography and Digital Creation at UPC (Universitat Politecnica de Barcelona) in 2012. 

Bit after bit I started working for some media and agencies, going to the F1 winter tests in Spain tracks, when in 2014 I covered my first GPs in Spain and Italy. This same year I also started doing other sports like football or basketball in FC Barcelona in a more professional way. 

Now I’m in my last year of university and meanwhile, I’m working as a freelance photographer, especially in motorsport photography. 

During the eight days of Winter tests at Circuit de Catalunya, the press officer allows to some photographers to go up at the tallest point of the track, but only 4 hours in all these days.
This point of view is very useful to catch the cars completely in top position. I saw that the tower had an advertisement printed in a very reflective plastic, so with an angular lens I was able to catch the car and his reflection like a mirror, getting a great composition with blue colours of the paint and the Williams tones.
I made this image with a Canon 6D, and a Canon 17-40mm f4 lens at 17mm focal distance, the shutter speed was 1/1200 second at f4 and ISO 800. During the Formula One winter tests on March of 2016, at the Circuit de Barcelona - Catalunya, Spain.
