Hello. My name is Manuel Zambrana, photographer and native of Madrid, Spain. I have dedicated my time to photography since 1989 collaborating with the most important mainstream media, magazines and newsrooms like: Vogue, Elle, Harper´s Bazaar, El Pais, Le Monde, etc. I also worked for advertising agencies such as IBM, BBVA, Iberdrola, Banco Santander, Grey, Shackelton, Y&R, Olgivy, etc, specializing in portrait photography. For 13 of those years I worked for the most important record and cinematographic companies such as Filmax, Empty, Lola Films, Alquimia, Zebra, etc. for Spanish directors like Carlos Saura, Isabel Coixet, Bigas Luna, Manuel Gómez Pereira, Jaume Balagueró, Rodrigo Cortés, etc. I have been screenwriter, director and director of photography making short films and documentals.
