What you'll do

Cristina Enea is a public park, in a key place in San Sebastián. It has become the hub of important facilities and urban and cultural developments and it´s near the Tabakalera International Center for Contemporary.

The park was originally the private garden of the estate of the Dukes of Mandas, Fermín Lasala and Cristina Brunetti. On the death of his wife, the Duke donated the farm to the city on the condition that it be called Cristina-Enea (in Basque “de Cristina”). The park has been municipal property since 1926.

Currently, the park is one of the most interesting one in Spain. It has a surface area of ​​94,960 m2 of which 16,660 m2 are roads, 1,300 m2 are buildings or ruins, and 780 m2 are the pond. It has peacocks and many ducks as well.
It is worth it for those who are looking for a break from the hustle, bustle or stress, to approach this park and dive inside it in search of that switch that clears our minds and removes problems.

We will meet at the entrance of the Park and we will stroll along the park searching for nice little corners until we reach the Duke´s Palace, now the Cristina Enea environmental center. You will get a forest bath while being photographed. No experience is required, just be yourself and I will do the rest.

Interesting locations we will use for the photos:
1) Entry
2) Pond
3) Lookout
4) Cristina Enea Foundation/ Palace
5) Mikel Laboa runway

I am a photographer, visual artist, a psychologist and anthropologist. I have lived in Australia, London, Leeds, Barcelona, San Sebastian, Zaragoza and now in Malaga. I have worked at the Fine Art Museum of Bilbao, the Centre Pompidou in Malaga and my photos have been published in magazines like: GoMag, Tendències, Rockdelux, ELLE, HARPER´S BAZAAR. I have worked at the Donostia Fashion Week (2014) but my main experience is taking photos of women. My main goal is to help women to see themselves through my eyes so they can improve their self esteem and feel beautiful in their own uniqueness. My method is called "slow photography". I offer, thanks to my training as a psychologist and anthropologist, a flexible, warm and human connection to help women feel empowered.

Deze fotoshoot met Oihana was een fantastische en unieke ervaring! Zij is enorm vriendelijk, gepassioneerd, professioneel en toegewijd. De uren met haar inspireerden mij om helemaal op te gaan in de fotosessie. De locatie was sprookjesachtig mooi. We hebben op verschillende plekken in de Botanische tuin foto's gemaakt. Oihana was goed voorbereid en had van te voren al mooie ideeën. Tegelijkertijd was de fotoshoot spontaan en er ontstonden ook gaandeweg ideeën om foto's te maken, geïnspireerd op de omgeving en op wat we tegenkwamen onderweg. Oihana heeft mij ook zeer bruikbare tips en adviezen gegeven voor het updaten en bijwerken van mijn website. En tot slot vond ik Oihana een heel mooie, karakteristieke en bijzondere vrouw! Met veel levenservaring en een bijzondere gave om je compleet op je gemak te laten voelen tijdens de hele fotoshoot. Voor mij was dit zéker niet de laatste keer! En volgende keer neem ik ook mijn dochters mee om hen ook deze mooie ervaring te laten meemaken. Ik was heel benieuwd naar de resultaten: de foto's zijn echt prachtig geworden; ik krijg alleen maar positieve commentaren! Héél veel dank, Oihana!

I recently visited Malaga with my family. Prior to travelling I was looking for an outing for my daughter that would provide her with a unique, enjoyable, constructive, memorable experience. “Artistic Photos at the Botanical Garden” caught my eye. I thought the final line in Oihana’s Airbnb page…..”I offer, thanks to my training as a psychologist and anthropologist, a flexible, warm and human connection to help women feel empowered.”, was an offer too good to overlook whilst also providing a great opportunity to visit a gorgeous location and do something very different to what my daughter would do if in her home environment. The meeting would also provide some great memories, some beautiful photographs whist allowing interaction with a Malaga local which may also improve insightful and add another, deeper dimension to the interaction. I was not disappointed and more importantly, nor was my daughter. My daughter had a fabulous two hours with Oihana, who was articulate, gentle, empathetic and nurturing which provided the ideal environment for the “slow photography” to take place. My daughter’s trip to Malaga was hugely enhanced by this experience and now has some lovely memories and fabulous, sensitive, beautiful photographs to remember the visit. I would strongly recommend that this would be a lovely memorable gift to your wife, partner or daughter and will only add to their enjoyment of their time in Malaga.

La experiencia ha sido genial! La contraté para mi pareja y nos encantó. Oihana es un encanto de persona y muy profesional y cercana. Conectó muy bien con mi pareja y le hizo sentir muy a gusto, además de que el sitio es precioso. Las fotos son geniales, pareciera que tiene un don para captar con la cámara lo especial que tiene cada uno y plasmarlo de una forma muy creativa a través de las fotografías. Experiencia super recomendable!
