My name is Oihane (pronounced oy-ah-neh) and I am a fashion and portrait photographer from Spain, currently based in London.
I studied Fine Arts to become an illustrator and then slowly started to shift towards the digital world, becoming a digital artist and retoucher, and working for musicians and book publishers, creating CD and book covers for a while.
While sourcing photography for my works, I started taking my own pictures when I couldn't find what I needed, so that's how I got into photography and has been my passion since.
I love heading outdoors whenever I have the chance and the light is right, to take portraits of places and locations.
Coming from a seaside town from the north of Spain, I can't spend too much time without seeing the ocean, and that's why it's always a recurrent theme in my landscape photography.
