I WAS BORN AND RAISED IN BRAZIL ANd found out i loved photography when i got an old canon ae-1 from my dad.
in my mid 20's, i got a job as a still photographer's assistant, that later led me to WORKING AS A P.A AT O2FILMES,
I loved the set and film production instantly...
in 2012, I Started my carrer as a Cinematographer on commercials, short-films, music videos and stop-motion animation.
since then i have free-lanced at major production companies in brazil such as vetorzero/lobo, o2filmes, hungry man, academia de filmes, KILLERS FILMEs and conspiração filmes.
I have lensed some cannes, annecy and d&AD awarded projects such as 'war on drugo', psa 'autism speaks', johnson&johnson´s 'breakdance', tim - 'soundemoticons' and red ballon - 'how do we say?'
I LIKE THE GOOD OLD NATURAL LIGHT, VARIOUS SITUATIONS, all live SHOOTING PROJECTS. but i'm also very fond of mixed media projects, cg,
post-production, motion control, studio filming and new technologies like 360, vr, camera tracking, photogrammetry, hdr
and in camera fx.
STORYTELLING-WISE, I believe to be a good partner for the director. i think narrative comes before everything else.
When I’m not working, I like climbing, surfing, playing guitar, traveling and getting to know art, music and diverse cultures.
Love exploring restaurants and food culture too.
FreeLance Cinematographer for commercials, music-videos, shorts and stop-motion animation.
