Javier Acebal

What is Ancorpiu? It is the portfolio where I publish my jobs and the latest news about my projects. You can also download my pictures for personal and commercial purposes and even buy prints and receive them at home!


I’m Javier Acebal, a photographer who has also worked in a lot of things: I have worked as a graphic and web designer (sometimes I’m still doing it!), I have volunteered for social projects, I have produced artwork, coordinated cultural projects and I even run a marketing enterprise focused on the tourism industry: Oh-tel! Marketing.

Among my photography clients we can find the USA Embassy in Senegal; the Spanish Embassy in Senegal; Sightsavers; AECID; BL Harbert International or GOAL Ireland… and several hotels!

I try to combine my time between the humanitarian/commercial photography work and my personal projects.

I’m currently based in Senegal, but I have been in Ethiopia, Djibouti, Turkey, Morocco, Gambia and of course, Spain, my born country.
