I’m Romy (b.1981), a Spanish freelance photojournalist based in Nijmegen, The Netherlands.
My background is in Graphic Design. During my years in the School of Arts I learnt the power of image. Later I decided to reoriented my career and use my skills as a photographer to portrait the society in my surroundings and rise consciousness about social issues all around the world. During the last years I found the way to do so working as a published freelance photojournalist.
Since 2016 I’m collaborating with NURPhoto Agency, an International Italian News Agency.
Thanks to NURPhoto Agency, my photos can be seen in some of the most important International News Agencies, like Getty, AFP, AP Images, Zuma Press, etc.
When I’m not covering news locally, nationally and internationally, I am committed to pursuing all kind of photo reportages that can tell a story, a life, something to learn about it.
For me, a photo must to tell more than a simple image, it must to tell a story, capture a feeling.
Feel free to contact me, if you have any question, suggestion, a story to tell, or a professional assignment.
I’m available for assignments 24/7, in The Netherlands and abroad.
From May to June, I'm going to be walking El Camino de Santiago, and also taking portraits of others pilgrims, telling their stories around this fascinating journey.
If you're interested in this photo series, please feel free to contact me. :)

Portraits along The Way, Spain.
From May 5th to middle June I'm going to be walking "El Camino de Santiago".
My mother passed away twelve years ago of a metastatic cancer. She had always wanted to do it, walk "El Camino", but she never had the chance. So my reason to walk it's her, but I'd like to know which reasons are for others Pilgrims. So my idea is taking portraits of other Pilgrims beside a little interview to find their reasons to walk.
