Remember when I mentioned a trip to Madrid to film the footage for an interactive video with 3Clic? Now you can see the final result of what we did over there, right here – different color and everything, look at my mighty blogging skills! One of the things that makes me weirdly proud is how […]

Magnética Magazine published my latest editorial, and an interview with me – in portuguese, sorry foreign readers! If you want me to translate it or something say so in the comments, it’s a mighty long interview. Luísa Cativo tem 25 anos e vive a vida no formato 35mm. Formação não lhe falta: Artes Visuais e […]

This was the first indoors editorial I ever did using the second-hand flash I bought in the Summer for my camera, and a cheap 28mm lens. It was also the first time I worked with one of the most talented stylists in Porto, Nelson Vieira, who’s also an absolute sweetheart. The dresses were designed by […]
