Who am I?

 

• Who are you?

I’m Ruben Vigil. I’m 32 years old and I live with my wife in Tarragona, a small city about 50 minutes by car from Barcelona. I love to take photos, ride my bikes, travel and spend time with my friends.

• What do you do?

Nowadays, I’m working in a factory and this allows me to pay my flat, my bills, the photo equipment and the trips. Everyday, when I finish work I spend time preparing and doing photographic projects.

• What would you like to do?

I would like to take action sports photos all the time! Specifically BMX and MTB. It also would be great if I could share time with my friends, travel and meet other riders, photographers and filmers, too.

• How long have you been a photographer?

I started in photography at the beginning of 2010 but I’ve been working hard every day since then, learning new photographic techniques which I can apply in my projects. I also invest some time getting inspiration from other great photographers and artists.

• What type of cameras do you shoot with?

At the moment, I’m working with a Nikon D700. I don’t think that Nikon is better or worse than other brands, but my first camera was a Nikon and after purchasing a lot of material compatible it’s very difficult to do a change. I work with some analogue cameras, too. They give me a really good performance and they’re fun! I will create a film exclusive section in my gallery shortly.
