Studied photography at Terrassa municipal school of applied arts (1984-1985). During years has practiced his two best passions: photogrpahy and mountaineering. Actually he combines the profession of outdoor photographer at MTB races, mountain marathons or climbing with the profession of High Mountain Guide UIAGM . This last one makes it easier for him to access to many places that will be more difficult for someone else whithout his capacities.

He is usually the photographer for the MTB Catalan Cup, Volcat or the Sky Runner World Series, organised by Ocisport company.

In 2006, next to Peder Sundström, is officially the photographer of the Adventure Race World Championship, one of the circuit raids that are a part of the world championship of this sports discipline.

During many years he has travelled to different continents, which allows him to dispose of a file over 70.000 images. Now you can find some of these pictures on this site and you can buy them for your article, book or advertising material.
