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. 

After a long working day during the Winter tests, where the drivers sometimes make more than 150 laps in one day. The team mechanics and Pirelli technicians start the hard work of cleaning, review, disassembling all the tyres and send them back to Pirelli factory.
It is a good moment for the photographers to catch the splash of water on the tyre, or the technicians working on them. So I saw this tyres resting in front of the blue garage gate in a perfect composition and colours contrasts, and took this image quickly.
I made this image with a Canon 6D, and a Canon 70-200mm f2.8 at 100mm focal distance, the shutter speed was 1/400 second at f5.0 and ISO 800. During the Formula One winter tests on February of 2015, at the Circuit de Jerez, Spain.
