About Martinez de Septien
My name is Santiago, Industrial Engineer by profession and amateur photographer.
Born in Burgos, Spain in Dec 1964, and living in Málaga.
Father of a numerous family, I’ve always had a fascination for photography but it was in these last few years that I’ve discovered it deeply.
I define myself as a “weekend photographer”. I actually work as an industrial director in Andalucía, but my interest in immortalizing moments surged many years ago.
Influenced by classic photographers such as Cartier Bresson, Eliot Erwitt, Dorothea Lange, Brassai, Kenna, Ortiz de Echagüe who changed the way I see things.
