It’s me, Maria. The girl with camera who finds the magic within the ordinary. My priority as a photographer is to capture those authentic moments that truly matter. To me, it’s not just about the images, it’s about the feeling. 

When I’m not taking or editing pictures, you can find me walking around, exploring this amazing city of London, often in parks or libraries, reading, researching, travelling,

I am a trained Linguist ( 6 languages so far) a qualified teacher/tutor, a (ex) journalist and a full time photographer. It’s been a long journey getting here, but here I am, and I absolutely could not imagine doing anything else.

I have been published in Vogue Spain, Vogue Children Spain, El Pais, EPS (Grupo Prisa ), Mia (Group G+J), El Viajero (Traveller) and my clients’ have included The London Stock Exchange, London Fashion Week, Better Gyms, London Comedy Club, Save the Children, etc.

Let’s work together !

PS. I have a DBS Certificate and I follow the Covid 19 guidance.
