I am a Portuguese photographer and digital artist. I've been a graphic and web designer since 1991 but since 2005 photography gradually became my full time occupation.
Formerly working in graphic design and advertising studios and having access to computers and graphics software, I was able to gather the technical knowledge and improve my skills in illustration, photo manipulation and post-processing.
Meanwhile, I took a 3 year professional course of photography and shortly after, I won my first 1st prize in a prestigious national photo contest which gave me the motivation to pursue a career in photography.
I'm a freelance photographer and stock imagery contributor since late 2006 and my images have been licensed and published all over the world in marketing and advertising pieces, websites, magazines and book covers. I am also co-partner at Shootbox-imagens studio.
My interests and influences in photography are broad. I don't have one unique style or preferred subject matter. I create images for several stock markets with different needs. In my portfolio, you may find from colorful nature and bright landscapes to a more dark and atmospheric composites, passing through textured backgrounds and product photography.
I'm available for photographic assignments and/or image post-processing and retouch.
Feel free to contact me if you have any comment or question.
