First of all, I want to thank you for taking the time to stop by.

My name is Javier Estraviz and I am a freelance photographer based in Barakaldo, Basque Country, in the north of Spain. I am not only passionated about Street Photography, which I like to call Fotosterona™ (i.e. my particular way of finding Street Photography moments), but I am also interested in Photography in general.

My first shots took place in the film era with my father's lovely Werlisa Color camera, then some first digital unproductive experiences, a DSLR (I loved that Nikon entry level DSLR, the reasonably cheap but mighty D3100) and nowadays, a convinced EVIL believer (only with respect to cameras!). I don't shoot in a studio, so DSLRs and their lenses weigh too much for my back (excuses) and... I am growing old, you know (more excuses). With my two humble and discrete in size Olympus machines, an OM-D E-M10 and a PEN E-PL7, I feel pretty confortable to frame any situation in front of me. Of course, I would also like to try Fujis, Sonys, Leicas and the kind, but this is an expensive hobby to be continuously changing systems, I'm afraid. And, as any photographer should know, it is not the camera but the photographer the one that photographs. Cameras are nothing more than a tool.

I hope you find my work interesting and if you have any comments, please let me know (see my e-mail address on the right).
