THIS IS MY STORY
On April 21st 1982, I was born in Matosinhos, Porto, Portugal. The world was not the same anymore…
At the age of 7, I did my first photo reportage, during the annual primary school travel, to Dunas de São Jacinto, in Aveiro, Portugal. I brought a camera that my father gave me to document the day. This was also when I met Isabel, now my lovely wife.
At the age of 16, I was already an avid amateur photographer. I made a travel to São Tomé, an African Island. When I saw these photos after development, I made the decision to become a professional photographer.
I went to ESAP to graduate in Photography, Arts and Communication.
I made an internship on a Portuguese National Newspaper “Público” and started my career as a photojournalist.
I shot my fisrt wedding. Some weeks after that I founded QUEM CASA QUER FOTOS, a documentary wedding photography business.
Exactly 10 years after I started dating Isabel, and after documenting dozens of weddings, we got married on the 5th November.
