About Markel Redondo photographer
Bilbao- San Sebastian- Biarritz // photographer and filmmaker
DJI Drone Photography Award
Eddie Adams Workshop alumni
(Spanish,1978) 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 am based between Bilbao (Spain) and Biarritz (France) when not travelling. I am represented by Panos Pictures and since 2018 I am fully licensed drone operator. I work both with medium format film and digital photography.
Fluent in English, Spanish, French and Basque.
When not taking photos or filming I will be out cycling or surfing.
