Hi, I´m João Bracourt aka Brek.

I am a photographer living in the beautiful Algarve, Portugal.

I have published in the world´s best surfing magazines (The Surfers Journal, Stab and Surfing), worked with some big companies (Nike and Mercedes), won awards (Red Bull Illume), collaborated in various books (Sumatra: return to paradise and Ericeira: world surfing reserve). Some of my work is exhibit at 6feetandperfect gallery in Paris.
