About - Mila Agirre Photography and Digital Art

My first camera was a Point and Shoot, very simple and far from the sophisticated settings of my later SLRs. Probably this simplicity was fundamental in letting me focus on what I believe is the key to photography: the composition.

Soon I got an analogic SLR and I learned the basic skills of photography. I fell in love quickly with digital photography because I had the feeling it opened a gateway to a new stage with plenty of possibilities to innovate.

The accessibility of new technologies has democratized photography. This is a great challenge because most customers know something about photography. Professionals have to improve skills to add value to our images.


I am a lawyer and a Licentiate in East Asian Studies. It sounds like a peculiar background for a photographer but I strongly believe every one of these different disciplines has added value to my personal conception of the visual arts. In addition, last year I started a Bachelors Degree in Art.

Proud of being a Basque, I appreciate the advantages of globalization which bring closer different cultures. I’m a versatile photographer who enjoys the experiences of travel photography, the empathy of portraits and the detail of macro photography. When I need to travel over the real world borders I become a digital artist and run through my imagination, to dream a fantasy world full of color and beauty.


My first exhibitions were in the Basque Country. I remember with special love the exhibitions in Gasteiz to support Bultzain, a local NGO that helps homeless and the exhibition in Barakaldo, my birthplace. From there, I had the privilege to meet photographers from other countries and contribute to international projects like Frozen Kids. A documentary project.

At the beginning of 2014, I started to exhibit my artwork internationally.
