You can go down. Face plant. It is not your decision to come up. Some times you die. It is not the end. Ahah, just some weird thoughts about life hitting you. The ego is your enemy? Reality check? Lessons? Enjoy the ride maybe. Still no camera in my hand. Fck!
I am really toutched by the gestures friends from all over have been giving me. From donations to just feeling my pain it´s been awsome. I am trying to raise 2k to replace my broken Nikon d800. Selling prints…
It´s 25€ for 30x20cm, 50€ for 40x30cm and 100€ for 100x70cm.
Thanks for helping me out Marlon Lipke, Gony Zubizarreta, Alain Vacheron, Al Mackinon, Pablo Martínez, Francesca Perini, Nic von Rupp, Álvaro Costa, Diogo D´orey, Sebastian, Antonio Renteria, Nuno Cardoso, etc.
Kindness is the language which the deaf can hear and the blind can see.
Drove to Cordoama to shoot Gony Zubizarreta. It was his last day here and the waves were pumping. Took a few from top then… bang! Dropped my Nikon D800 to the ground. Kaput. I think the mount is f+cked, the images come out blurred. I am selling it for parts.
buddy marlon feeling it
hulk in heaven
Please help me to get another camera and do what I love again. You can buy me some prints (send me an email) or donate some money here:
A bit congested and not feeling that good, scored this rare bird yesterday. I wasn´t impressed, but the swell direction wasnt the best. Fishermen call it Sequeador, not Esquiador, thanks for the correction Nicolau!
They say Carwin Williams was the first to surf it, about 25 years ago. It´s got good fish and perceves. Went for a swim to try to get some water footage, but just got smashed. At least it helped my blocked nose.

The second slideshow of Por Detrás das Lentes at Kisa Real Italian Food was from photographer João Cabrita. Another sucess with lots of visitors in a laid back atmosphere in the center of Lagos, Algarve.
Next one will be friday 28th of April at 7H. Don´t miss the street photography of my mate André Silva.
I don´t eat pizza´s or pasta, but the anti pasta is yummi!
I shoot events too. It´s not because of the money, I like people. This time I did this photos for my friend João Luis Soares 50th birthday. It was a fantastic soiré with lots of smiles, here are some of the pics I took, check it out:
