“My name is Sergio Saavedra Ruiz, I am from Santander, Cantabria, Spain.
I have been in the world of amateur photography since 2011 and wildlife, landscape and nature photography are my favorite genres.

I started by doing a basic digital photography course and since then I have continued teaching myself through several workshops with prestigious photographers.

I have been lucky enough to have had some of my photographs published in international press and in prestigious communities such as National Geographic via its worldwide social network.

I discovered AGORA through several social networks. I visited the platform and was really impressed with what they do and the quality of the photos uploaded and so decided to join last August. I believe it’s an amazing way to show my work to the world and learn from other photographers. I am so happy that I have succeeded in becoming an AGORA Hero and would like to thank the AGORA team for everything!

The guest judge for this Contest has been photographer Artemio Gvozdkovi

We’d like to say a huge thanks to Artemio for helping us and the Community in choosing the world’s greatest photo of #Kiss2019!
