Holidays in Italy

This was so long ago that I almost don’t remember about the whole relaxation and sightseeing time!

Back in June we went to Tuscany and we spent some time around a small town of Pomarance. Apart from frying our skins on the sun, having fun in the pool and drinking wine, we spent some time walking around and visiting nearby places. I don’t think we were expecting to bring back a lot of photos, but the heat during the day made it more difficult for us to be very active! Whenever we could, we captured the views and landscape, but there was also some space for street photography.

In this post I will show you both the analogue and digital shots – most of them are available as prints, so if you are interested, just send me an email or DM.

Enjoy! 🙂

New YouTube channel is live!

For a very long time I discussed an idea with my girlfriend, Joana, to create together a YouTube channel and share our experiences, opinions and knowledge with a wider audience. This was supposed to be a place to share our creativity in photography, too.

The time has come that we finally did it and you can see the first result down below.

We already have plenty of ideas, hopefully soon we will be able to make it all happen and you will see more of it in the near future!

If you are interested in photography, like we are, then show us some support and let us know what would you like to see next.

Hope you enjoy 🙂

A day off = architecture photography

Had a day off this week and decided to visit that area of Universidade NOVA with a very modern building and its surroundings. Took only a few shots, but I like them a lot! Definitely need to come back one day – close to the sunset or with a better filter.

A word about 24 Hour Project

First time I heard about 24 Hour Project was back in 2016. I found the idea very interesting and I was wondering how can photography make a difference? An important difference!? It was only a few months after that I tried to make a difference in our world myself during the 2017 edition of 24 Hour Project. Days passed and I was still checking Instagram and Facebook for news related to this project and with my eyes wide open I looked at the photos they shared on their account – photos from all over the world showing other people’s lives.

Back then I was not into street photography, I was too shy and felt too exposed as a photographer to the public, and because of that – in my opinion – it didn’t go well for me… But then I thought “why am I afraid of people, if I’m doing it for the people?”.

I stepped forward… I got more confident taking my cameras out to the streets and then in 2018 I tried to take even more responsibility by being a local ambassador of 24 Hour Project in Lisbon (you can read about it on their website).

Just today they shared a story on Instagram about upcoming updates, so stay tuned.

And of course I will join their forces again in this year’s edition!

Below you can find some photos I took last year as part of the 2018 edition of 24 Hour Project.

Modern architecture

Even before I got my first camera I was amazed by modern architecture and architecture in general. In this post I would like to share with you a few photos I took in a very modern – 20 years old – part of the city of Lisbon – Parque das Nações.

Honestly, I am not a big fan of that area, but the amount of great shots it offers is amazing.
