Yes, that´s me. Shot a few years ago on a Polariod transfer by my mentor João Palmeiro. Probably this was a light test for a shoot that I can't remember! So, yes, I shot a lot in film, slides mostly, and miss them a lot, the anxiety of waiting to see if we had the right exposure, the right moment and the right pose of the model. The long waiting hour in front of the developing machine, watching the film drum spinning and just waiting there...having time to think, and rethink...

 

These days, I shoot digital, and do a lot of compositing and CGI. But I still have the same respect for the click as I had before, that moment that you know the light is coming through the lens and hit the silver halo, despite being a piece of silicone!...

So if you like my work better than my words, thats fine! I prefer to shoot than write! So you can reach me at any time by contacting me or my reps:
