He studied at the University of Art and Design in Monterrey, Mexico, in 1996.
Sabel was commissioned for his first wedding in 2002 and has since been invited as the official photographer for over one hundred weddings, including that of Lawrence McGinty, in some of the most salubrious venues across the UK.
In 2005 he set up Studio Blanco in Oxford, not only in order to provide a space in which to explore his own creativity, but also to offer a place where likeminded artists and photographers might feel at home and pursue their own visual goals. Since the studio’s inception six years ago, Sabel has been commissioned by a number of distinguished publications across the globe.
In 2006, his Matador photographic series offered an alternative perspective of bullfighting. Sabel spent a great deal of time in Spain for this project which then attracted the attention of the 55Max Gallery in London. The collection was later sold in its entirety.
Various other commissions have included the official portrait of Sir Clive Woodward beside the 2012 Olympic Stadium, a book commission in Paris concerned with a collection of priceless, ancient masks, as well as countless publications from The Times to Max Magazine. Sabel has always said that he can find a relationship with his subject whether it is a person, an object, or a landscape, and it is this passion for narrative as well as image that has created some stunning and memorable photography over the years.
