About Markel Redondo photographer Spanish b.1978 Eddie Adams Workshop alumni PDN30 DJI Drone Photography Award EsoDoc alumni A day before I was due to begin a degree at the University of Bolton, I decided Computer Sciences did not factor in my future and withdrew from the course to pursue a career in photography. From Bolton I headed East to China where, while studying for an MA in Photojournalism, I worked for a number of agencies, newspapers and magazines. In 2007 I headed back to Europe, returning to my hometown Bilbao in 2008. Currently I divide most of my time between Bilbao and Biarritz (France) when not travelling abroad. I am represented by Panos Pictures photo agency. Since 2018 I am fully AESA approved drone operator in Spain.
