Most people view photography as something that brings us closer to things and reality. And, in fact, the industry and most people who use photography go to great technical lengths and efforts to make images produced by cameras always look as if they did so (or at most allow for a few normalized variations, as styles). But why insistently fight its nature? I would say that it is precisely in what it takes away, in what it differs, and how it draws us into diverse things and objects, into its own world of metaphor and visual experience, that lies its beauty and, personally for me as an author, its interest.
I am devoted mainly to developing visual projects and usually engage with portraits and documentary, but also branch out my activities to commercial photography assignments (advertising, portraiture, fashion and editorial).
I am, since 2008, an Epson Digigraphie certified author and printer.
Based in Lisbon, I can frequently be found travelling throughout all of Europe and Brazil.
Note: Please forgive me if sometimes i might take a little while to answer your message. I'm usually always juggling several works, projects and travels, so my calendar gets a bit chaotic now and then and sometimes i fall behind on my e-mails and stuff. Anyway, i will always reply as soon as i can and you can always reach me more quickly using the contacts you can find on my web site.
