Red Bull BC One All Stars 2012

In February, I had the privilege to shoot together with my friend Marcelo Maragni the 2012’s Red Bull BC One All Stars team in Rio de Janeiro.

Marcelo took care of the action shots while I did portrait and lifestyle. You can probably see Marcelo’s action stuff when he updates his blog…

When too much goes on in our heads…

We work a lot. Sometimes under very stressful situations and for long periods of time. One of the main things we need to do to keep functioning as a productive team is to keep up the good humor and I’m proud to say we manage to do that pretty well.

WARNING! The following is pure crap! No aesthetic concern nor good content is involved, it’s just something we do from one shot to another to have a good laugh at night and to keep our minds healthy for the next day šŸ™‚

Citroƫn Aircross Expedition Portraits

Last year, together with David Santos Junior and the G2 Adventure staff, we followed the Citroƫn Aircross Expedition.

During the 33-day trip through some of Brazil’s most beautiful places, we drove more than 8000 kilometre crossing some 250 counties in 10 Brazilian states! You can read more about all those numbers and about the people who traveled with us on G2 Adventure’s Blog (portuguese only) or from the ExpediĆ§Ć£o CitroĆ«n Aircross Blog.

From my end, I took more than 19,000 pictures during 34 restless days… Apart from all kinds of stuff we shot there, we were traveling with a floating number of more than 40 people and though it wasn’t part of my job description, I always like to shoot portraits. Sometimes I just get spontaneous snapshots and in other occasions I see a beautiful background and try to “grab” the people so I can make them some nice images.

This is just a sample of some of the hundreds of portraits I shot on the road from the folks who joined the trip…

Aerial images from Mitsubishi Cup – PaulĆ­nia 2011

This is a short sample gallery of aerial images shot on the Mitsubishi Cup that was held in PaulĆ­nia (SĆ£o Paulo – Brazil) last weekend.

The Mitsubishi Cup is a Brazilian cross-country rally circuit on it’s 12th yearly season with seven races to be held in different towns around the country in 2011.

We have been covering Brazilian-Mitsubishi rallies for quite a few years now and as usual, the opening race of the season brings something different. Last weekend we had an awesome brand new circuit built by the Mitsubishi team in PaulĆ­nia, a small but promising town in the SĆ£o Paulo state country side.

68 teams raced across the 15 Km high-speed-dusty circuit crowningĀ Cristian Baumgart and Beco Andreotti as the overall winners.

Hello World Again! I’m Back Online…

Hello world!Ā After a loooooong break in my online presence, I’m glad to announce that I’m back!

Better than ever, with a new wealth of knowledge, fresh pictures and last but not least, a brand new website!!!!

The portfolio has gotten totally awesomely reworked, with quite a few unedited stuff and with images some of you may know. The Photoshelter integration will be working better than ever for the online Image Archive so you clients out there can search, browse and purchase images easily without ever leaving my website!

I’ve posted a selection of some legacy news/posts from my former website in the blog and a lot of new stuff is coming. There is a brand new projects section, debuting with a worth seeingĀ experimental movie shot with still images and I still have some tricks that will be making their way into the website in the coming months.

I’m so happy and relieved to have finished this! I’m a humble photographer with no prior web-design or programing knowledge and I built this whole new website practically from scratch… On the other hand, I could never had done this alone. I had to learn a lot of hardcore new stuff to get it live and I can’t be thankful enough to all the people involved, most of whom I never met and many I can’t even name because their help just came out as some useful info in a google search… Continue reading “Hello World Again! I’m Back Online…”
