He later combined his enthusiasm for architecture with his passion for photography, so that he began a career as a professional photographer in 2012. Together with artist and photographer Shuko Kawase (@studioshuko), he visually explores the uniqueness of different cultures, cities and architectures. The photographic works have already been shown in solo exhibitions in Barcelona and Beijing, among other places. In addition, Nicanor García presents his photographs on his social media channels and is very successful with them. Forbes Spain Magazine included him in the list of the 100 best influencers in Spain in 2021 and 2020, while in 2019 he was among the 5 most influential photographers on social networks. Since 2012, his Instagram account ((@nicanorgarcia) has been one of the most followed personal accounts in architecture and travel.
