I am a Brazilian photographic artist and biologist living in Sydney since 2009.
For the last 16 years I have studied photography in all its aspects - technological, historical and philosophical. I have participated in various contests and exhibitions, such as "Air - The Four Elements", run by Northern Beaches Council and "Gardens in Focus", run by the Royal Botanical Garden in Sydney.
The opportunity to work with film photography and B&W darkroom was an eye-opener towards the photographic process. Alternative and ancient techniques such as cyanotype, anthotype and construction of pinhole cameras inspired me to use photography as an artistic expression.
I am currently working on the "Aether" series which brings together my passion for photography and my passion for the natural world. Using an in-camera technique I aim to bring about the "spirit" of the 4 elements (Air, Earth, Fire and Water).
I am available for photography tuition (group or 1-on-1) and workshops for all ages such as: "Thinking Photography", "The Magic of Light: Pinhole Camera", "Lightpainting", "My place", "Cabinet of Curiosities", "Exploring Available Light".
