Hello, my name is Hansel. I was born in Seville, Spain, but I have always lived in Gran Canaria, Spain. I am a young adventurer, I like rock, cooking and photography. I think my biggest dream is to travel the world with my partner. Currently, I like (and I'm more comfortable) photographing couples. I love the feeling I get whenever a couple sees their images for the first time.
How did you learn photography?
I started as a kid in the world of photography. My family gave me a simple compact camera. Later on I studied fine arts, and knew this is what I wanted to do. Over the years, I have assisted workshops, private courses, and many hours of study and practice, I always want to know more.
What year were your "Then" photos taken in?
They were taken in 2013
What did you do to better your photography skills?
Practice a lot. Read and find information, but above all, go out with the camera. Having a base is important, but where you really learn is to practice. Meet with other photographers, see how they work. The inspiration helps them grow. Feeling happy with what one does.
What is one piece of advice you would give to a new photographer to help them excel in their craft?
Get outside with your camera. Make lots of pictures, practice, thoroughly know your camera. Interact with other photographers, learn from them, we all started from scratch, do not be ashamed to talk to them. Don’t run. Take your time, do it quiet and eager. That's the way to do something good.
What gear do you use?
I use a Canon EOS 6D. My lenses are: Tamron 24-70mm 2.8, Canon 50mm 1.8, and my favorite, Sigma 35mm Art. To work at home, I use a Mac and process images in Lightroom. I like Lightroom because it lightens my working time.
Thank you very much for this opportunity to appear alongside other great artists in this great community.
