The name of my blog is a nod to Henri Cartier-Bresson with a hint of Portuguese as a nod to another artist whom I deeply respect and love.
My wife asked me what motivates me as an artist and my art, lousy photographers and boring photography, in part motivates me. Equally, amazing photographers and art work that makes me want to cry motivates me. My main goal is to develop a body of work strong enough to warrant a gallery exhibition.
I'm very blessed to have a successful career as a sound engineer, a job that I love, so I don't shoot for money. Photography is a strictly artistic endeavor for me.
I'm fortunate enough to live with an incredibly talented, beautiful, smart, articulate and sensitive artist and we have a funny, charming, smart-ass 2-year-old son. They're my driving force, I would do anything for them.
I make a sick sangria.
I like to shoot with music playing, I do like most music, cliché as it might sound, I have to as a function of my job. Some of my standards are Tom Waits, 80's U2, Green Day, Manu Chao, The Beatles and the CD of the band that played at our wedding (salsa).
I have an artistic vision and I need models to help execute it, if you need a portfolio I will help you develop one. We can work together, I will shoot whatever you want me to shoot, in exchange for your time.
all the beautiful muses who have made my photographic life a joy.
