Tell us something about yourself
I’m a photographer based in Portugal that loves, live and dream with photography.
How and when did you get into photography?
More seriously, it was 8 years ago, before I already receive good feedback from some shoots I made to some friends of mine and then I decide to learn about photography in some workshops and after that positive feedback increase and I never stop until now.
What does photography mean to you?
It’s what I love to do, is what makes me awake even with a few or none hours sleeps, is what makes me alive.
Please briefly describe your photography style for our readers.
My style is spontaneous, relaxed and intense.
Where do you get inspiration from?
From books, movies and other photographers like Mario Testino, for example.
Think you in advance what you want in the picture?
Most of the times yes, I think in advance but some of them came naturally, during the shoot.
Studio, on location or both?
I prefer on location because we can play with the elements that are around us and different kinds of weather conditions. I got some cons also but it’s much more challenging and exciting at the end.
What has been your most memorable session and why?
It was in Esbjerg, Denmark, with a beautiful model that was Miss Denmark finalist because she was very pretty, lovely as person, depending on angle and light she look different from photo to photo and it ended with amazing photos, just like I had imagine.
Would you consider yourself a hobbyist or a paid professional?
I’m a paid professional.
What has been the biggest source of inspiration in your work?
My vision J
Nikon or Canon? Favorite lens?
Nikon, since when I start. For fashion shoot 70-200mm f2.8 from Nikon.
What is one piece of advice you would like to offer a new photographer looking to start their own business?
To trust in their work and enjoy every single shoot they make.
If you love it, go for it.
What do you think of our new magazine?
