IMAGINE · EXPLORE · ENGAGE

I am a self-taught photographer/documentary filmmaker whose projects combine photo-realism and High Dynamic Range post-processing technique. With a keen eye for composition and detail, I specialise in architectural, commercial landscape, lifestyle and urban photography and I am adept at developing original concepts and seeing them through to fruition.

Raised on quality sunshine in Brazil, I dropped out of school in order to set up my own small advertising company at the age of 22. Five years later I decided to leave Brazil and I first landed in Portugal seeking my European roots. With a passion for travel, later I visited most countries in West Europe, the USA, Mexico, North Africa and the Middle East. Finally settling down in the UK, I polished my skills in photography and filmmaking in a series of courses and I studied information technology and environmental science. Based in London, I've been traversing the creative industries for the past 15 years. My travels have taken me through the worlds of advertising, online marketing, filmmaking, photography, media production and entrepreneurship. In 2009 I created the first concepts for EARTH 2.0®/Earth 2 Hub which bring together leading-edge international creatives, scientists, technologists and futurists to explore how new science, new technology and new thinking could positively impact on the future. I am the Founder/Creative Director of DMT Lab — Design|Media|Technology, a creative communications agency based in E20, in the heart of East London. I am also a keen runner.
