Since I was a child, I have lived in the country surrounded by animals: farm animals (chicken, rabbits, cows, ducks, etc.) and wild animals, mainly birds and reptiles. Later, when I was 13, I started to do snorkelling every day for weeks, during the summer holidays.
When I discovered photography, I found the perfect tool to share some of the moments that I experienced in the underwater world. The passage for spearfishing, allowed me to get familiar with the Portuguese coast, the Sea, the fish and everything that was related to the Sea world. Jacques Yves Cousteau and José Rodriguez de la Fuente were both responsible for my growing taste for the natural world.
Today, besides photography, I also work with video. My two biggest fans live with me: my son “Shark” Martim, and my daughter “Mermaid” Íris.
