Kiss the shine

November 25, 2016

I lived in London for the last 5 years working as a graphic designer but I always had a passion for beauty photography and for years I tried to learn as much as possible about this type of photography.

I literary spent all my spare time teaching myself and trying to find all the information I could about this genre.
I knew that If I really wanted to make it happen and If I wanted to become a beauty photographer, I had to focus all my time and energy on it. So that's what I did, I risked everything and I decided to quit my job and go back to my hometown in Spain.

Boy that was scary! It took me a few months adapt to the change and get use to not having a full time well paid job. But even harder than that was trying to find professionals (MakeUp artist, hair stylist, model, etc.) to work with. I just didn't give up and I keep pushing until I finally managed to put together an amazing team.

This image is the result of my first beauty photo shoot and I couldn't be more proud!
