I'm Christian (the guy behind Lluminissa),  a Peruvian native living in Barcelona for the past 10 years. 
Previously, I lived in California where I got most of my education and made lifetime friends.  As you could imagine I have spent most of my life adapting to new cultures, life styles, weather changes, language barriers and anything you can think of. Let’s see what destination I get to discover next.
At the age of 18, I got my hands on my very first SLR, an analog Minolta and a couple of zoom lenses. My adventure as a photographer got underway publishing my first images in my high school yearbook.  Later in 2006 I moved to the digital world when I purchased a Nikon D80.  This new toy required a new set of skills that would not only rely on my eyes but also in my ability with a computer.  The digital era blended my passion for photography and my curiosity for new technology.
Most of my experience are with portraits, landscapes, and street photography.  Nevertheless, I am always ready to experiment new crafts and take on challenging projects.
If you’re in the neighborhood and need some guidance around the best places to photograph or if you´re traveling but don’t want to do it alone.  Maybe you just want to get a coffee and talk about sports, food, and critique my images.  Or there is that special event and you want me to capture it.  Please feel free to contact me.
