I have dedicated a significant part of my life to photojournalism and documentary photography. You can see some of my work published on CNN and other photoblogs. This fact made me enjoy photographing people. So, I quickly started making portraits in my own studio in Porto.
More recently, I had the opportunity of travelling to Guinea-Bissau with the Portuguese ONGD "Mundo a Sorrir", where I could make a lot of documentary photographic work.
But I started as a landscape photographer, and I have been photographing these last twenty years on a daily basis. My work has been published on photoblogs, Flickr, Olhares, and I am already featured on Getty Gallery.
I started painting very early as a hobby. I had to give up painting to follow my studies on Literature. Later, when I took photography with passion on a daily basis, I felt I was replacing the painting I had abandoned years ago. I love photographing nature, specially woods and trees. Early morning mist is my favourite atmosphere. Mixing mist with light has been my best joy. When I photograph, I see with my heart and soul…
My training as a photographer includes Fine Art Photography (APAF - Associação Portuguesa de Arte Fotográfica, Lisboa), Técnica Fotográfica e Fotografia Contemporânea (Atelier de Lisboa).
