I was born in São Paulo, in the distant 1980s and decided to embrace photography after almost 20 years working in the creative field at communication agencies. In this change I had the great pleasure of meeting great masters who helped me a lot and who are references to this day, like the great teachers Clício Barroso Fh. and Thales Trigo, from Contraste Estudos Fotográfico, where I was a student and now I have the honor of being part of the team of teachers.

In addition to studying with some of the best photographers in Brazil (and in the world), I also had the honor of photographing for advertising agencies, press relations, covering corporate events and making portraits, having published works in several magazines (printed and online) and portals.

I believe in love, I believe it's not just a feeling, it is the most powerful force of the universe.
I believe in stories, good stories are the most beautiful way to preserve and spread the power of love.
I believe in photography, I believe it is the most atemporal way of telling good stories.
I believe in empathy, and that is the entrance door to tell love stories with photographs.
I believe photography is the least important thing on a wedding day, but as time goes by, it becomes the most powerful witness of the love and joy felt that day.

That's why I believe in candid photos, carefully grab a little moment of emotion and togetherness, and preserve it for the days to come. I don't believe in creating epic photos with beautiful poses and perfect smiles. I want people to be themselves to live and share the love and I'll be there to tell the stories.

and my business is all about what I believe.
