How would you describe your photography style?
"I think I have a style which works across the different disciplines that I cover. I have a way of working that I apply, whatever the sport. Of course, Formula 1 is completely different from football, but the way I approach each event is very similar. There are some parameters that I use and apply for all the disciplines and the result is a style which is unique to me. I find it hard to explain my style, but I know that when people see my images, they say, 'That photo was taken by Jorge.'"
You've shot a huge range of events – do you have a favourite sport to photograph?
"I played rugby in my youth, so I like rugby very much and I love covering that. I like team sports and field sports. Unfortunately, here, I don't do enough, and I'd like to do more. I enjoy all the sports I cover. It's a blessing and a curse to cover so many sports, as I get bored very easily. If I cover a tournament for a month and the days are similar, I get a bit twitchy. My brain is used to being constantly challenged and pushed to do different things."
What would you say are the biggest challenges with the kind of photography you do?
"If you're just starting out, the challenges will be related to having the right equipment. There are always new technologies, new cameras, new lenses, so these challenges are still valid. At this stage of my career, my main challenges are situations related to access. You can be the best photographer in the world, but if you don't have access to where you need to be, you can't do your job."
What's been the most valuable lesson you've learnt during your career?
"I'm from Argentina and we often have a short fuse. But although I can't hide my emotions, if I've had a disagreement with someone at work, I've always fixed it – and we often end up becoming good friends. I've encountered many different people and we all have bad days, but you must remain calm. I would also say it's very important to be patient, and you must always prepare ahead of time for any shoot."
What's next for you? Which ambitions remain unfulfilled?
"I am really content with what I'm doing. Perhaps I would like to expand into the other events which are happening here in the UAE – I don't cover a lot of golf for example. I am also looking more at mentoring. I have teams who work with me, and I observe what they are doing and mentor them. I have grown to love this, and I think my career will take this direction in future – working with small teams and taking on more of a mentoring role."
