My name is Sonia Martinez and I am originally from Spain now based in London. I travel with my camera in hand to ensure I don’t miss anything everywhere I go!
I grew in a family with a strong mindset. I’ve always got told that I needed a degree to be able to have a future but I also though, Is it worthy to spend the rest of your life doing something that you don’t enjoy? and after 4 years of UNI (to please my parents) I decided to move to London.
I just wanted to improve my English. I didn’t know that this one would be the city that eventually would open my eyes. I got the pleasure to cross paths with Giselle Palou in London 4 years ago which showed me the passion she had for her photography. It helped me push myself to achieve everything I wanted! I decided after a while to buy all the equipment that I’ve got right now and I started shooting everything around me. I love to shoot editorials and fashion photography but I’m truly amazed by any type of photography where creativity is the key.
After 2 years doing it, here I am! I take pictures of a lot of people. But not just of them, I also try to capture the essence and feelings they are having in that particular moment. I love to portray those seconds that are going to remain frozen forever, I’m obsessed with the details. I’ve always though small details can make a huge difference. This is how I describe my job, capturing magical moments.
