SERGIO VILLALBA
Travel and sports photographer

Based in the Canary Islands, Work worldwide

I'm a photographer, adventurer and surfer. I'm passionate about blending travel and sports as part of the same story, and thus connecting companies to their audience. Traveling across the planet has shaped my distinctive style of shooting, which is a reflection of the way I live.

I’ve been creating editorial, commercial and advertising content all around the world during the last 12 years. I feel comfortable in any kind of photographic field, but it’s outdoors where I fulfill my potential.
I love the ocean above all things and swimming in the ocean on a daily basis is a need, I find it the absolute cure for anything.

My stock photography is represented by Aurora photos, my fine art work by Bali Green agency, and my editorial work by TheWideangle.
