ffThe Hummingbird, The Boy and The Camera
I was born and raised in Brazil.
When I was a kid my family spent holidays in a country house where Hummingbirds came every day to drink nectar from the flowers on our verandah. That’s when I became fascinated by these incredible little birds.
Photography was my father’s hobby. He carried his Nikon-FM everywhere and taught me how to use that beautiful mechanical tool. Then the magic started to happen for me. I was photographing the hummingbirds using various exposure settings and delighted in having contrasting images in which the bird’s wings were in movement and others where they were almost still.
Developing those images of the hummingbirds took me to another place in this world and so my interest in photography flourished.
Son, if you want to be good at something, you need to learn from the best
As it became evident to my father that I wasn’t interested in taking over the family business because my true passion was photography, he came to me one day and said “Son, if you want to be good at something, you need to learn from the best”. He then showed me the work of Henri-Cartier Bresson and Ansel Adams.
I will never forget the feelings of viewing those images and becoming so drawn to them. I used to stay awake in bed at night flicking through the pages of those photography books. I decided I wanted to make images that would make the viewer forget they were looking at photographs, and hoped they could feel immersed in the emotion as I was.
When I was 16 years old my father enrolled me in an Art School to learn photography. I was completely blown away by the magical alchemy of the darkroom. I felt blessed by the opportunity to be learning the craft, meeting other photographers and seeing different types of work, and sharing thoughts and feelings about the creative life. I then continued my studies and completed a Bachelor of Professional Photography.
My mother : The artist
My mum is a painter, her painting school was always filled with interesting creative people who also influenced me. I felt inspired in my own creative life seeing the wonderful scope of work that came from her students. I perceived an artistic life was not only a yearning for me but was also professionally achievable.
My mum lovingly and patiently taught me about her ideas of composition and depth of field. I still apply her teachings to my photography today.
My work life
My working life in photography has been varied. As a free-lance photographer my career has spanned through weddings, photojournalism, fashion editorials, portraiture and advertising. For 20 years photography has been my full-time work taking me from Brazil to the United States and since January 2005 I have lived and worked in Australia.
Today most of my work is wedding photography and portraiture. I find being part of a wedding day very special, capturing moments of love between the couple and witnessing joy in their families. I work very hard for my couples knowing that the photographs I take on that day become their life long cherished memories.
