HI THERE, I AM

Beatriz Durán Balda

Professional photographer based in Madrid, specialized in documental, travel and portrait photography. I truly believe there are many unknown stories to tell the world, and I try to capture them through my camera.

I studied Industrial Design Engineering between Zaragoza (Spain) and Jönköping (Sweden), where I lived for two years. I am also Project Manager Professional (PMP) certified and I have previous work experience as Designer, Marketing Assistant and Project Manager, background that allows me to develop a project from the idea to the end.

I am currently taking a Master in Photography and Postproduction at Too Many Flash (Madrid), after winning a scholarship, where I am focusing my work in documental and photojournalism projects. I not only control all the technical aspects of my camera and the light, but I also know how to tell stories, to convey emotions and to connect with the viewer.

Photography allows me to open my mind, focus my efforts in seeing what is happening, everything that surrounds me, and then tell it to the rest of the world through my eyes (and my camera). It is the luck of having in my hands, in my sight, the possibility of capturing what is happening… freeze the moment and show it to the world.

I am based in Madrid, but I offer my photographic services worldwide. I will work with you to deliver the highest quality photographs. For more information in relation to image licensing and assignments, please contact me.
