I have lectured on sports and adventure photography. One of these lectures took place at Art College or the University of Alcalá de Henares. - As the winner of several prestigious contests on sports photography, in all aspects, I have exhibited my works at different places. - I have been the organizer of the photo exhibition “Momentos deportivos madrileños” (Madrid sports moments). It consisted of 50 historic photos of Madrid’s sports highlights since 1900. It is supported by “Comunidad de Madrid” in 2013. - In 1987, I started to collaborate with the french graphic agency TEMPSPORT. I provided them with copies of my work to be sold and delivered all over the world. In 1991, as something unique in Spain, I set up my own sports photo agency “TEMP SPORT ESPAÑA”. I gathered some of my friends who shared and supported my project. I taught them how to take sports photos as they are taken in other foreign agencies. So I released and sold our work away and abroad by means of another company. - At the beginning of 1993 I became completely independent by setting up TEMP SPORT MIGUELEZ Ltd, and later on, by registering it in the Patent and Trademark Office, the trademark MIGUELEZ SPORTS FOTO. This name, which was purchased by another agency, was used to market all our image bank for 15 years. During that time, it was the only press agency exclusively devoted to sports photography in all its different disciplines: Football, Athletics, Basketball, Gymnastics, Martial Arts, Adventure and Extreme Sports, Motorcycling, Car Racing, Handball, Tennis, Golf, etc. - In 1995, with the exhibition of our photographs in high quality format to sell them away through the Internet, I took a great step ahead, once again a pioneering move in Spain to provide better service to my clients. In this sense I have had some journalists writing for international sports sites. Thanks to this and the photo quality, I was not only represented worldwide, but I also represented some of the top sports photo agencies to market their images in Spain. Thousands of photos could be seen and purchased straightaway in my previous site: www.miguelezsports.com - Until July 2007, I worked both as a photographer, and manager of my agency. I managed some photographers as permanent contributors and others spread in Spain and abroad as temporary contributors; I also managed staff in charge of photo marketing, international relations, the analogic photography laboratory, storage photo digitalization, photo edition, etc. - In July of 2007, I sold the trademark MIGUELEZ SPORTS FOTO and the domain name www.miguelezsports.com to the agency CORDÓN PRESS, with whom I worked as a photographer and consultant on sports images for three years. - In 2009, apart from the sporting and advertising events that I covered, I travelled across 8 African countries for 7 months, as the official photographer of the project FOOTBALL-DREAMS AFRICA, supported by ASPIRE ACADEMY from Qatar. I took photographs in villages and small towns searching for talented football children and teenagers. Publishing a picture book about this project: ASPIRE FOOTBALL DREAMS. - Nowadays I work exclusively from my own agency “TEMP SPORT MIGUELEZ”.
