Paloma Benito

It all started when I was very young. I realized we all have the power to create amazing things.

I started drawing and illustrating scenes I saw in my mind, people used to ask me to draw for them. Few years later, a good friend gave me which would be my first non-compact camera. One thing led to another and soon photography and graphic design became my true passions.

After finishing a degree on English Studies, I felt brave enough to start studying Graphic Design -specialized in advertising-  at the School of Arts of Zaragoza and, later, Fashion & Lifestyle Photography at IED Master in Madrid.

Since then, I gained experience in the fashion industry as a photographer, digital retoucher and graphic designer. In my free time I like taking courses on specialized retouching, social media management, web design, 3D design, product/editorial/fashion/beauty photography, studio lighting, etc.

I’m currently living in Tokyo, working as a photographer and retoucher thrilled to learn from new experiences.
