Collaboration with portrait photographer Jon Etxezarraga

We are lucky to live in such a beautiful place. It only took us half an hour to arrive to this rocky beach and experience one of the best portrait sessions I’ve had in a while. This time I met with Jon Etxezarraga, a fellow photographer whose work mostly consists on portraits. It was the first time that we met and worked together, and I definitely loved how he carefully set up his camera and how he guided Bihozne, our model, to create such an elegant set of images (which you can check on the link above). It's interesting to see the differences in how we visualize an image; he focuses more on the person in front of him, whereas I like to make the landscape  also part of the photograph. I think it was really positive to learn so much from a collaboration like this, and I would love to keep working together with him and other fellow photographers on upcoming projects. 

I think this experience made me think about how enriching it can be to go out and shoot with other photographers. There is always something new to learn (about posing models, camera gear, settings, locations, light…) and it's awesome to talk to other people about the craft you believe in. 

These are some of the images I made on that sunny morning, I hope you like them!

*Thank you so much to Bihozne Artetxe and Jon Etxezarraga for all the great moments of that Saturday morning.
