Gonzalo Botet (1984, Spain) is a travel, architecture and documentary photographer.
Upon graduation in audiovisual communication, Gonzalo launched his career in Spain, where he began his specialization in TV series as a video and camera assistant. Learning progression and hard work eventually led him to find his true calling, photography.
