2000 · Course on Photography http://www.ivasfot.com, I was in the need of knowing more about photography in a professional way and in this course I could learn and understand how photography could help me in my creative work. A very technical course.

2000 > 2006  Collaborations in different local magazines as The Balde, Essete, Donosti Aisia. 

2004 · Course Graphic Design http://www.areafor.com, needed to learn and understand how graphic designers work because I understood that many times I would have to collaborate with them.

2007 > 2009 · Photographer and assistant and retoucher at MyZ, interior and furniture photo studio. It has been one of my favourite places where I have worked. It was amazing, a great studio where I learnt a lot. Large digital format, medium format, retouching images, colour development and management.

2009 · Working on my own as photographer, specialized in interior design photography. naroaphoto.com

2009 > 10· Also part time Course leader, workshop of photography 4hours a week, teaching technical aspects of photography as how to use the camera, aperture, speed, and darkroom working, but also how to create work and a solid project during a course 9 months. Groups of 10 people, adults.

2012 > 2013 ·Project manager at Arteleku. San Sebastian, Spain.

I managed an open/public darkroom. The darkroom was opened to artists, photographers or other discipline artist that used photography also in their work, they had to present a project, with a deadline and they could use the darkroom. I gave the inductions to make sure they were able to use it,

 After that I was asked to organise conceptual photography workshops. They main idea is to offer another kind of workshops, not related to technical area of photography, more photography into art and expression so I invited Spanish photographers to join and create a 3 full day conceptual workshops.
