|Born in 1977, since an early age I felt attracted by natural world. For years I’ve been a volunteer and leader in Quercus, largest Portuguese environmental NGO. In 1998 I finished my university degree on Electrical Engineering, but I decided to travel and work abroad on environmental issues - in Spain (Pyrenees) and later in Poland (Warsaw). From there I travelled to most of Central European countries. In 2001 I would return to Portugal for a yearlong photojournalistic project financed by the European Commission – “Uses of Nature by the Traditional Culture” was the title. The outcome of the project was published by National Geographic Magazine (Portuguese and Polish editions). Since then I’m a regular contributor of National Geographic, with over 10 articles published on the last 3 years. Other contributions are with Reader’s Digest, Fotonatura Digital Magazine, SuperFotopratica, among others. From 2001 to 2004 I’ve work on a leading British windfarm company, in Portugal. Then I left for a fulltime freelance career. Since 2004 I do Nature photography training, and albeit it still has a place on my photographic vision, on the last years I’m more and more focused on photojournalism.
