If you are reading this, you may be wondering who I am and how I got to this point in my life. Or, you might want to know me a little better before hiring me. Wellthen, this is me: Borja (pronounced bor-ha),a fashion photographer based in the captivating capital of Spain, Madrid.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve had a camera in my hand. My grandfather, my motherand my uncles were all interested in photography and were my true motivators, and are still my main source of inspiration today.
As a young boy, I would use my weekly allowance to buy second-hand automatic cameras and test different types of films with them. Oh, the magic of the analog camera!
My friends and I were influenced by the early 90’s aesthetic as teenagers which pervades all the negatives I still treasure from that time in my life. Eventoday, my friends continue to inspire me.
I took sometwists and turns before photography became my way of life. Whatever I did, a camera was always by my side.
My first workexperience was in documentary photography, as a press photographer for my university newspaper. Subsequently, I became a graphic editor and chief of photography for the same publication and, later, a political and cultural photographer for Agencia EFE and Tiempo de Hoy magazine. Many of my photographs from those days have appeared in print all over the world. During that time, I combined teaching with my job. While teaching at university, I discovered the artistic and creative possibilities of editorial portrait and fashion photography.
Soonafter, fashion became an integral part of my life. I was an assistant of the top spanish photographers for more than five years.
If you’ve read this far, you know me a little better. Forme, photography is about style, and style is intimately bound to a person’slife. Let me show you my particular style when I work with you.
