I was born and raised in a village surrounded by forest and river, a few kilometers from the sea in the city of Viana do Castelo. I soon started interacting with nature and my complicity with wildlife increased, becoming an integral part of my growth.
The passion for photography came later, in 2006, where I bought my first camera HP PhotoSmart C945 and caught my first traces of fauna and flora, I found at that time, that the taste for wildlife, combined with the passion for photography, would awaken a strong and new hobby for me.
In 2008 I bought my first DSLR camera, since then I have dedicated myself to photographing the existing biodiversity in Portugal and Europe, obtaining unique photographs that have given me good results in national and international photography competitions.
Allied to photography, I studied computer science and design, I started to work with digital art doing mix media works. My most used work tool is Adobe Photoshop, which I have been working with for over 25 years.
After 2015 I started dedicating myself more to illustration, watercolor painting and seamless patterns. I currently sell my works in various online stores I own, and I also accept commissions of any digital art that fits the themes of my portfolio, as well as licensing of seamless patterns.
