Originally from Colombia, I obtained my Master's degree in direction of Photography in the Polish National Film, Television and Theatre School in Lodz, Poland, and my BFA in Interdisciplinary studies and Photography in Concordia University, Montreal, Canada.
I have been working with most formats available to cinematography, ranging from Fisher-Price PXL cameras to 35mm, passing through HD, RED One and 16mm. My work has taken me to collaboration with an international pool of directors and locations beyond my country's borders.
In 2011 I received the silver tadpole for cinematography in Camerimage, Poland, for the short "Normal People" (Ludzie Normalni, dir. Piotr Złotorowicz).
I recently finished shooting Sebastian Buttny's debut feature film "Heavy mental", expected to premier in the summer, 2012. I have also recently shot two short animated films for Oscar winning Breakthru films, with directors Dorota Kobiela and Adam Wyrwas. Both are stereoscopic films shot in stop motion.
Although always developing, I have focussed my work on building images that enhance the story without overriding it, working on camera work that attempts to be honest and emotional.
