Artist | Hobbyist | Photography
I was born in Portugal and have lived in Vancouver, Canada for most of my life. In 2007 on a trip to my homeland my interest for photography began, I became aware that I had a good eye for taking photographs. My journey into creative photography began when I purchased my first SLR digital camera. My photographic experience comes from reading, practicing, self taught trial and error, and some course training. My artistic style is rather eclectic; modern, realistic and sometimes slightly surrealistic. My inspiration comes from observing other artists, movies, music, and life.

“You don't make a photograph just with a camera. You bring to the act of photography all the pictures you have seen, the books you have read, the music you have heard, the people you have loved.”
― Ansel Adams
