About me

I was born and raised in the state of São Paulo, Brazil. Traveler, an explorer by heart, I love arts and cultures.


This love for the unknown led me to live abroad for several years: in Germany, in the USA, and in the Netherlands. This exposition to new cultures and languages taught me a lot about who I am and how I envision my career as a photographer. 

I learned the art of taking meaningful, beautiful images and developing them by studying under great mentors in Los Angeles, CA in the USA. My artwork is focused on portraits, for private clients, and small wedding ceremonies. I am specialist in black & white, but surely shoot in colors as well.

Today I approach my photography with dedication and love!

And I do believe that photography is more than just pushing a button. It is about feeling the moment.
