ABOUT ME

Creativity # Hard Work # Emotion #

Hi. I work and live in Porto.

 

I worked 9 years in the Portuguese Industrial business, as a Mechanical Engineer. Steel, hard metal, production, drawings. A  tiny gear of a big machine.

Guided by emotion, i started a new life. Went home and made my business plan.

2006 was a great year. My older daughter was born and i started my photographer career. First as a freelance and later on as a company, Nouvelle Vague Photo. A small studio with a lot of equipment.

I feel lucky. Working as creative professional. Making advertising photography, commercial films and teaching Photography. Mostly making new friends along the way…

What can i do for you?

These are the major creative services i currently provide

ADVERTISING PHOTOGRAPHY

Because great images sells much more products and services. I try to create remarkable photography for your product. Mostly B2B services.

SHORT ADVERTISING FILMS

An emotional short video can unleash customers and general spectators. This is the new Marketing tool used by big companies. Did you notice?

PORTRAITS

Sometimes other professional artists need some good portraits. For websites, album covers, flyers, campaigns. Every professional needs to care about their image.

CREATIVITY

Every business needs to think outside the box. Innovation is the new black. Creativity brings value.

Studio

Vila Nova de Gaia

Nice small studio near Porto where i create product photography and portraits. It has many flash and continuous lighting, make-up room, post-editing and meeting room. You are welcome.

Equipment

It’s not the most important resource in a creative work but certainly helps a lot. I normally work with known brands such as Canon, Sony, Elinchrom, Rode, Konova and Zeiss. From professional cameras and lenses, to portable lighting, drone, motor gimbal, jibs, rigs, slider, portable audio recorder, wireless lav mics, etc.

A picture is a secret about a secret, the more it tells you the less you know
