Nacho and Alvaro: Who they are

Our first blog series presents the Spanish brothers Nacho and Alvaro. Photographers, designers and video artists based in Madrid. Their specialty is photography and video about fashion, lifestyle and travel. Areas they have been working in since they started three years ago, first in their blog nachouve.com and later on social networks where they have thousands of followers. Both are educated in visual arts, are characterized by a unique and very personal style, where every detail is taken care of. Photography is the basis of their creations, although work is diversified in various fields such as video and design. Constantly imagining and inspired by what surrounds them, their works are influenced by cinema, art and pop culture. The main theme is lifestyle and everything that it involves : fashion, travel, experiences … always from their aesthetic point of view. Being immersed in their world is such an experience.


WITH ELEMENT TRAVEL WELL ESSENTIALS ON TOUR

1. Tell us a bit about you- where you live, age, work , interest…

We are Nacho and Alvaro, we live in Madrid, where we work as photographers, designers and influencers. We love to travel, music, the movies and the art in all its forms. We are passionate about living adventures and happy to make of our work a way of living.

2. How does a day in your life look like at the moment?

Our day to day life is with a camera on our back. We take photos of everything we like to generate content of on our social media channels. We walk through the cities, photographing and filming, trying to give our personal touch to everything we do.

We are always looking for inspiration in magazines or the internet, we love to soak up all the trends and try to make that for each of our jobs to represent who we are. Photography in the cinema is something that we are passionate about and we always look for a cinematic look in the things we do. It's our little obsession.

3. What is your Element and why? ( your passion)

Our passion is art in general, we love when people express what they feel in an artistic way. Traveling makes us grow and sports cleans us.

4. How do you think it is important to find a personal element and follow dreams and passions?

It makes us confident that we can make a way of living in doing what we like the most. We believe that it is very important to feel complete and fulfilled with what you do in life. We are lucky !!

5. Why do you think it is important to find a personal element and follow your passions?

We all have our own element, you need to discover yours and fight, fight hard to reach it. The moment you reach it, you feel happier. If people are happy with what they do, whatever it is, that generates a positive aura that benefits yourself and everything that surrounds you.

6. You are brothers and share a lot of interests - and a lot of stories and photos on social platforms. What do you share on social, what can followers expect from you?

We like to share everything we do and where we go, it's like a mixed lifestyle box where you can find fashion, travel, restaurants, our pet or a landscape, always under a neat aesthetic. We are passionate about beautiful photographs that express something. We do things as real as possible. We are always innovative, normally with an unusual content that breaks our graphic line, without loosing our essence.

7. What do you like about the Element brand?
We have known the brand since ever. Element is attitude, adventure and nature with a very urban style.That's what we really like.

8. Element stands for skateboarding, the arts and nature - in which principal you find yourself and why?
We sincerely identify with everything Element represents. We love nature because it has always been very present in our lifes, art fascinates us and is part of our daily life such as skateboarding, (we have fallen many times from our boards, jjejeje, we are not very good at it, but we love the aesthetic around it.)

9. With your current job you are traveling a lot. The Element Travel Well Collection is made to accompany you- whatever the journey. What do you like about the collection? The Travel Well collection is great. We think it fits perfectly to the needs of adventurous people. It is super light, comfortable and has a very neat design. What more could you ask for.

10. What are your favourite pieces from the collection and why?

The jackets are super light, but the fact that the backpacks are packable is a real highlight. We are sure that we will give it a good use because it can be carried anywhere without being annoying.
