About me

sobre mí - Alberto Duran Fotografía

Thank you for your interest in getting to knowing me.

   I was born in Madrid and I currently live in Valladolid (Spain). After getting my degree in law, I decided to focus my life on the world of sports. At this time I started in the publishing world writing articles in magazines such as Dojo, Sport Life, Body Fitness, 3Sesenta and Intergyms.

How was my passion for photography born?

   I really started learning photography because of the need to preserve the images I saw when I was traveling. I feel fortunate to have known incredible places in New Zealand, Norway, Malaysia, Cambodia, Costa Rica, Japan, China, Finland, Sri Lanka, Borneo, Indonesia, Egypt, USA, Iceland, Singapore, Taiwan, Canada, Vietnam, etc.

   Magazines such as “Muscle & Fitness”, “Flex”, “Ironman” or “Musclemag” became interested in my Fitness Photography style and began publishing my images and articles.

What do they say about me?

   I’m proud to have been recognized by the main publications as one of the most important fitness photographers in Spain:

“Talent and professionalism define Alberto’s work. At Muscle & Fitness our readers enjoy their ability to find detail in each image and models always offer their best version. It is very easy to express what we are looking for and Alberto quickly captures it with his camera”. Armando Marquez – Muscle & Fitness Spain


“Years ago I started working with Alberto because I was struck by the quality of his work, not only once finished but also at the time of doing it, knowing how to get 200% out of each model or athlete. Undoubtedly one of the best professionals in this sector with whom I have worked“. Xisco Serra – Ironman España


“When Alberto takes the camera the world we see is transformed under his lenses, becoming more beautiful and artistic, since he is able to extract the beauty that escapes the human eye. During the years that it has contributed in our magazines, they reached a high level of popularity”. Cándido Moro – Musclemag

What is my photography style?

   From the beginning I have given great importance to learning to develop my own style. That knowledge and my own experimentation have created my current photography style, which is in constant evolution.

   I don’t like to be labeled in a specific style (photojournalism, editorial, artistic, etc.). I think the best way to describe it is through my photographs, so I invite you to visit the galleries.

What equipment do I use?

   Although it is often said that the photographer is the important thing, I believe that in order to offer the best quality the instruments must be up to the task.

   I normally work with NIKON cameras and in terms of lighting, I love using natural, but if a session requires it, now I use QUADRALITE flashes and MagMod light modifiers.

   For the transport of the material, LOWEPRO is my choice for urban daily use and F-STOP for travel photography or in nature.
