Photographs of our incredible Planet!

I developed my interest in photography when I was very young, even before I develop my passion for traveling. Some of my earliest memories were spending hours looking at photographs of amazing places around the world in magazines and books (right! we didn’t internet yet – now I feel old!).

I finally was able to buy my first film camera with my first paycheck when I was 15 years old, and since then I never stop learning more about my greatest passion.

I studied photography at the university in Brazil during my Communications course and took some classes in the US. But what I really like is to shoot raw images during a trip and to figure out new angles, lighting and how I can capture moments that will be frozen forever in my memory and in my photography.

There is something magical behind a kid’s smile when they see a camera for the first time, the lighting of a sunset behind the high mountains in the Himalayas, the trees reflecting in the lake creating two images of the same beauty and capturing an animal in movement during an African safari!

I am a lucky girl to be able to travel to around the world and capture the magical moments with my camera.
