WHO AM I ?
“Photography for me is not looking, it’s feeling. If you can’t feel what you’re looking at, then you’re never going to get others to feel anything when they look at your pictures.." Don McCullin
When I am taking photos, my inspiration comes from what I feel and sense, not so much from what I see. In planning a photo shoot, I strive mostly to tell a story or to recreate a special state of mind.
Having completed a degree in Business and Administration, I started my professional career in the 90´s in these areas. In more recent years, I had the opportunity to develop my photography training through completing several courses in schools of reference in Portugal like Oficina da Imagem, Instituto Português de Fotografia, Ar.Co and ETIC.
I have been challenged to perform different types of photography assignments in areas like interior design, advertising, food and sport events. In all these assignments I define clearly the final product and I work relentlessly using my perfectionist character to reach the agreed upon objective.
