About Markel Redondo photographer
A day before I was due to begin a degree at the University of Bolton, I decided Computer Sciences did not factor in my future and withdrew from the course to pursue a career in photography. From Bolton I headed East to China where, while studying for an MA in Photojournalism, I worked for a number of agencies, newspapers and magazines. In 2007 I headed back to Europe, returning to my hometown Bilbao in 2008. Currently I divide most of my time between Bilbao and Biarritz (France) when not travelling abroad. My work has been exhibited in Singapore, New York, Valencia, Ireland, Barcelona and Guernsey. Some of of the clients I regularly collaborate with are New York Times, Time Magazine, El Pais Semanal, Le Monde, Der Spiegel, Stern, Monocle, UNHCR, MSF, Greenpeace, Luthansa Magazine and Sunday Times Magazine among others. I am represented by Panos Pictures photo agency.
Since 2018 I am fully AESA approved drone operator in Spain.
I am fluent in English, French, Spanish and Basque.
