His photographic practice is as diverse as his activities, exploring genres of lifestyle and landscape, sports and travel. Proficient at getting a story across via single and powerful images, he keeps us in the loop (thankfully) though his website’s blog, recounting stories and sharing enviable images capable of making anyone rethink their desk jobs.
“Javi is a wizard with a camera and his photo essay of Jordan sent us into something of a trance. The snaps in this post, which range from brooding, copper-tinged desert vistas to colourful wall murals on the streets of Amman, wonderfully showcase the draws of this multifaceted destination, bursting with attractions for outdoor lovers and city slickers alike. The impressive imagery is complemented by Javi’s usual clipped prose style, providing context to the visuals and personal thoughts on the areas he visits.” - Source

Javi collaborated with Travellers Autobarn in June 2018, travelling in one of our campervans in exchange for photography and blog stories. Every step in the collaboration exceeded our expectations, from the communication to the prompt delivery of content. But especially the amazing quality of the photography! I was blown away when I saw the photos Javi took of our vehicles and the scenery. He has an eye for angles, lighting and amazing editing skills, and I was greatly appreciative of the number of images he sent us, which exceeded what I had originally asked for. We would be more than happy to collaborate with Javi again.
