Hi, I'm Ainhoa

My story...

My story begins with an end. Leaving Bachelor of Arts was something that changed the concept of life I thought I was going to have. Yes, after 15 years in an art Academy, I went to college and I didn't like it. That's when it showed up. Photography found me when I needed it most. I became not only a creative outlet for me, but also a way to deepen my connection with the planet and other humans.

For a long time I felt misunderstood. I knew I wanted the freedom to create my own schedules, spend time in nature and impact the world in a positive way. No one should feel this way about pursuing their dreams. I value those who dare to take the step. Those who move for their passions.

The truth is that we already have enough "perfect" people and, honestly, we need more real.

I kept creating and started sharing photos of the things I loved to do: a life focused on nature and adventure, diving, concerts and the people I share this path with.

I am a Level 1 certified freediver and use these skills to spread awareness about ocean conservation.
