Bambina Ricoretta, also known as Rebecca Casado Frankel, was born in Madrid, to an American mother and Spanish father. Her binational upbringing and her life experiences abroad (she has lived in Belgium, Portugal, Spain and in the US) give her an international world-view and an easy-going style of approaching life.

As a teen, Bambina would spend hours shooting with her Minolta, using Black and White as well as color film. She spent days on end in the darkroom developing film and playing with the enlarger, creating different effects on photographic paper. Her first muse was her grandmother, a woman from a village in rural Spain (with less than 100 inhabitants) that fostered her passion to photograph people from humble places. She studied Set Design and Audiovisual Communication and has worked in art direction for TV, film, and photography. She manages to bring out beauty in any setting, always preserving and accentuating a visual narrative. For that her pictures speak for themselves. 

Bambina believes that being creative and having fun while working is part of the creation of any shoot,  be it motion or a still.  She enjoys working with both kids and adults, and captures the best of her subjects and sets with a creative playful eye.
