About us
Since I saw the documentaries of Félix Rodríguez de la Fuente in my childhood, I was very clear about my vocation, it has not been easy, but today I combine my work as a professor of zoology at the University of Córdoba with the making of nature documentaries. The relationship between the two professions is increasingly synergistic. Even recording techniques are now helping me to develop my research work more than ever, being able to discover exciting aspects of the behavior of animals.
I hope you enjoy my work, they are made with a single goal: to convey a feeling of deep love and respect for my environment.
