However, it was Alicia’s work with animals that truly set her apart. Capturing the stories of hope, happiness, and love shared between humans and animals became her true calling. Last year, her remarkable portfolio revolving around animals earned her the coveted IPA Award, one of the most prestigious international photography accolades in the industry. This honor only further solidifies Alicia’s position as a leading commercial pet photographer.
What sets Alicia Rius apart from others in her field is her ability to create genuine connections with the animals she photographs. Every image reflects not just the skill of a talented photographer, but also the trust and rapport she builds with her subjects. This connection allows her to capture the true essence of these animals, revealing their innermost emotions and creating photographs that are not just visually striking but also deeply meaningful.

TODO– Alicia’s statement is coming soon.
Before I became an animal photographer, I started as an Urban Explorer – in other words, someone who photographs abandoned places. It all began quite randomly because there was never a plan. I stumbled upon an old farmhouse that still held personal items, and I felt something incredibly special. It was as if I were trespassing into someone’s past life – a post-mortem witness to a family that once resided there but had to depart, leaving their belongings behind.
That marked the initial day of an incredible journey that defined me as a photographer and propelled my career forward.
Sometimes, the best things in life are the ones that unfold naturally.
