His regular studies, from the 7th grade to the university, was through the night schools created for workers and peasants. When he was demobilized from the Columna Juvenil deL Mar for being a minor (1973), wanting to return to his interrupted studies, it could not be. The Ministry of Education had created a new regulation and cases like him, with school delays for their age (according to the new regulations), could not study in day schools and  Nor, in night schools because he had to be a worker and he was not old enough to work at that time.
He had already started the course when he was able to enter the night school as a listener but with the right to the final exam of the course. After passing the final exam for the first year, he was able to officially continue on that path, without having to be a worker at the time.
In the plastic arts and in some technologies he was self-taught, between 1973 and 1987 apart from the private workshops he received, he studied different techniques,  criticism and art history in magazines and specialized books that came to his hands.
His first workshop on art and photographic techniques was in 1988, invited by the Casa de Cultura de la Habana Vieja, where he later founded the photographic collective ¨Contacto¨ in that same year.
