Sea water drops on tanned skin under the pouring Spanish sun

Discover the photographic works of Félix Ruiz Díez — our endless inspiration


Félix was born in hot Spain in the 80s. His main inspirations are simplicity and small details such as sea drops sun-shimmering on eyelashes or wet hair covering tanned and salty shoulders. Here are some of Félix’s notes.

What does the sea mean to your photography?

The sea to me is everything. Not only to my photography but also for my life. Is freedom. Is peace. A warm heart.

Name the secret ingredient of your best shots.

The light of the sun. Sunrise and sunset. Natural light is key and magical.

Please share your guide on your favorite sea coast.

Somewhere in Costa Brava (Catalunya). Garraf and Cadaqués are two of my favorite spots.

How do you keep a touch of ocean vibe in your city life?

The older I get the most I need the ocean in my life. I’m planning to move to the south of Spain, in a little town somewhere I can drive and spend my Christmas at the beach. The ocean, the smell of the sea and the sound of the waves – something I need in my life. I can not live without this feeling.
