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 tell more than a simple image, it must 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.
Looking for assigments!!!

Sint Maarten day parade, Utrecht
As soon it gets dark, children up to the age of 11 or 12 go door to door with hand-crafted lanterns made of hollowed-out sugar beet or, more recently, paper, singing songs such as "Sinte Sinte Maarten," hoping to receive candy in return, similar to Halloween. St.Martin's Day (Sint Maarten) is an old harvest festival that is celebrated in many European countries and precedes the fasting period of Advent.
