From filming and directing for artists in Spain in 2010 to working on the fells in Cumbria for 10-years.

Carlos Reina loves the Lake District, the people and events!

The photographer came to Cumbria in 2017 after living in Cheshire for a while where he was working as a Photography and Spanish Lecturer in a Cheshire college before setting up a sports specialist company in mid-2019.

Fast forward a year and his first year of business is said to have been a success – with the exception of this year where a lot of his work has been cancelled due to the Coronavirus crisis.

Come rain or shine, Carlos is out there with his camera photographing runners, cyclists and anyone participating in sport! He is often seen on the fells, along main roads, on sports pitches or shooting at VIP events all around Cumbria.

Since finishing his degree in photography and media studies prior to running his own photography business here in Cumbria, he worked in advertising providing professional photographic and post-production services for companies in Spain and the UK.

Carlos is also currently supporting West Cumberland Hospital by cycling around Copeland while capturing special moments for families on their doorsteps. So far, he has raised over £600 and has plenty of houses still to go!

The 37-year-old said: “I love living in Cumbria, there is no better place to be if you like the sport and outdoor lifestyle and of course the beautiful scenery, I am very grateful to everyone who has supported me and am looking forward to seeing everyone again when we can!”
