Born in 1972, in the heart of Porto. It was then and there when I saw, for the first time... light!
When young I used to admire when my father used the old Konica Auto S1.6. Aperture, speed, focus. All these concepts seemed very complicated but, at the same time, they substantiated a very intriguing "world".
My first photos had only one purpose, to record some moments during my travels. It was during one of these travels, to New York, in 1999, that I started to see people and places in a different way.... through the lenses of my camera.
The passion started then and has never stopped growing until today.
Through the years I have published my work in several online communities, launched my personal website in 2002 and, in 2013, started to publish my photos in my personal page in Facebook and later on in Instagram. These, along with some exhibitions and a book, are simply a way to share my passion for photography.
B&W is, currently, my favourite way to record light, it's always a challenge to be able to eliminate color from everything I observe.
I hope you can get to know me a little better when going through my Portfolio!
