A picture is worth a thousand words, as the popular saying goes. And the protagonist of this story chooses to keep his name, his face and even his age a secret. It is that he tries to go unnoticed and continue with the low profile that characterizes him in order to continue achieving the photos he has obtained so far. It was the photographer who found Tini Stoessel and Rodrigo DePaul in ibiza.
He found is a way of saying, since the images were taken on Saturday afternoon but he had been behind them since Friday, when he learned that the couple had arrived on the island. As reported at TV show the paparazzi who lives in Ibiza, he had planned to travel to Morocco to photograph Diego cholos Simeon and his wife Carla Pareyra. He had discovered that the wedding was in Marrakech because Atlético de Madrid had two days off: Saturday and Sunday, and Monday they would resume training.
Armed with this information, he turned to his sources for details about the Argentine footballer and thus discovered that he was not in Madrid. Then he began to unite the threads: that a few days before Tini’s arrival in Spain, that the rumors of a romance were growing stronger (in September the visits to the country had begun), that Camila Homs – De Paul’s ex-wife – was in Argentina, and that the singer was in Ibiza at the time. It didn’t take long for her to realize that the sportsman had also gone there to meet her. In this way, he suspended his trip to Morocco and decided to stay on the island in search of the couple of the moment.
While the Argentinian media had already warned of a possible meeting, the photographer began to speculate about the possible incognito arrival of Tini and De Paul, who were trying to go unnoticed. So that he imagines that they traveled in the footballer’s truck to Denia and from there by boat (also with shooting) to Ibiza. To avoid doing it by plane, or even by private jet, and being seen by airport staff.

After having investigated with various sources, he discovers the hotel where the friends of the interpreter of Lie to me, who traveled to do an advertising campaign. The paparazzi assume this was the screen Tini used to accompany them. However, it later emerged that he went to meet De Paul. For example, they were not even all housed in the same establishment.
The paparazzi (who can be found on Instagram under the name of @officialphotoshooteribz Yes @kary_gr_3299) began his on-call service that same Friday at the hotel where the artist’s friends were staying. Departure was at noon on Sunday. Everything matched. They would spend a romantic weekend away – or so they thought – from the press looking for them in Madrid. However, there was no sign of her or the national team footballer. Which made him think that the newest couple would be in a private villa that very few have access to.
The next day, the arduous search for the island began. The paparazzi imagined that Tini and De Paul would not be on the public beaches, since it was easy to find them there. And he made the rounds of private spas, those where personalities like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo.
“I got the photos because the stars aligned,” the photographer is honest, adding that since there were already rumors of the two of them in Ibiza from Argentina, he thought the couple would not be seen easily. “I was frustrated because I couldn’t find them, and I had to do other characters”, continues his story and adds that a source told him that Tini was in the hostel next to where he was. It was his chance. He went to Calabassa – that’s the name of the place – and bingo! : Tini and De Paul were sitting in the restaurant while their friends were on the beach, but much further away.

“There were very few people in the restaurant and I couldn’t get out my professional equipment to take the pictures”regrets the paparazzi who decided to take the images with his mobile phone, five meters from the table where Tini and De Paul were with a friend.
He stood there for two hours, waiting for the couple to leave. He speculated that they would do it alone and there would also be a romantic gesture. And it happened. Around 7:00 p.m., the player and the singer left the restaurant holding hands, then they hugged down a podium. And there were still the paparazzi to take the images that went around the world.

“I had no intention of selling or publishing them. I just wanted proof that they were together and then do a nice report with the professional camera. But between the place and their friends, it was impossible”, adds the Spaniard and specifies: “It’s not that I hid the same thing. They don’t know who I am.”. That’s why he doesn’t want to reveal his name, face, or anything else that might alert celebrities every time he works.
Rodrigo and Tini met their friends, who were on the other side of the beach and who all left together. In different taxis and private cars. That same night, the photographer received information about the restaurant that had been recommended to the couple to eat. He was there from 9:00 p.m. to 3:00 a.m. but neither of them showed up. The next day he didn’t go to the hotel because he knew they weren’t there and decided to go back to the beaches or the private beach bars to see if the couple were enjoying their last hours on the beach there. the island. “I can’t find them anywhere and I’m asking for information,” her story continues.
Later, he went to the airport to see if he could see them leaving Ibiza either by commercial flight or by private jet. He wasn’t lucky either. And then he learned that two ships had left that day to Denia. From there, he concluded that the couple had chosen this path to avoid the press.
Meanwhile, De Paul showed up at training on Monday for the Madrid athleteas planned, and Tini continues her journey because she must continue with her scheduled shows. On Monday, the images that confirmed their romance were revealed and they have so far not referenced it. Meanwhile, the paparazzi continue to do their work behind the lens, inviting their Instagram followers to tell them about the artists they find in Ibiza. “Any celebrity info you have, feel free to DM me,” reads his bio.
