About me

Astaroth (O.R.G.) is my artistic pseudonym. I was born in Madrid (Spain) in 1983 but I've lived in the mythical Spanish city of Alcalá de Henares since then, city with a very rich history and where nature has a great relevance (rounded by a large natural environment). A perfect scenery for photography.

I studied theoretical physics in Universidad Complutense de Madrid (UCM), where a strong interest in optics woke up inside me.

In my last stage in the college I started as an amateur and autodidact photographer. I bought my first reflex camera (a Nikon D3000) in December 2009 and I learned photography by myself, reading books, blogs and webs about this art.

As soon I increased my photographic gear and knowledges, I added new styles and techniques at my portfolio, in a constant learning, looking for my own way.
