A walk with Patricia & Juan around Bilbao
I think that the story of Patricia & Juan must to be told… I didn’t make their wedding… but once I hung up a notice saying that I needed a couple to photograph in Bilbao and Patry was the first to write super excited… just her eternal smile and attitude, filled me from the first moment. But in the end could not be me, and that session was not made. A few months passed and Juan secretly got in touch with me and told me that since I was one of his favorite photographers, he wanted to give for their anniversary a couple session, together we create a card with a photo made by her. Yes Patricia with love is a future or present promise. She is a photographer, just graduated with one of the greats right now in Spain, Serafín del Castillo, and never stops learning and training, she has been in Bodaf this year, and don’t stop absorbing everything around her. In my opinion she has a brutal sense of beauty and aesthetics and I was lucky enough to shoot a wedding with her. And her attitude is one of the most beautiful that have surrounded me in time. So in a way, as if I just started, I was afraid to do this session, would I disappoint her? Would she like my style?… Now, on hindsight, as they used to say, I was “shitted” (sorry for the expression). But that’s how it is, there are moments and days in which the insecurities flood me and I swear I thank for this, because that makes me feel that I don’t know anything and the sense of effort and the thirst for learning from coworkers grows, although they just started.
My adoptive land… MY DEAR BILBAO, which I love in a strange way because I can not live there due to the lack of Sun… There was the session and I tried to hang pictures in black and white which I love but I can’t, the colors of Euskadi are the colors of Euskadi.
The great souls have wills; the weaks, only desires. I admire Paty and Juan… thanks for being one of those romantic that you look at from the heart.
