PHOTOSHOOT | Goddess of the Sea

Beauty / Fashion / Photography

I have to admit I feel extremely embarrassed yet unusually excited to post this. Anyone who knows me knows that I am always, without fail, the one behind the camera. I’ve never had my picture taken properly – that means, not including cellphones or pictures with people I love or taken on holiday. I’ve never been the one that has to stand there and at least try to look pretty. So when Caterina of Kateidoscope (who […]

PHOTOSHOOT | Neon Sunset

Beauty / Fashion / Photography

It’s that time of the year again when Caterina from Kateidoscope.com asks me to take pictures of her for her blog, and I decide to do her makeup to match her clothing. I’m quite shocked at how well this look turned out considering it was completely unplanned – I just knew I wanted to use yellow. Everything else was decided as I went along with the brush. Makeup look details, explanatory chart and products list coming […]

One Day of English Summer

If there’s one thing I’ve learned during my time in the UK is that if the sun peeks out of the clouds for one day, everyone will run out in shorts and flip-flops and sit at the beach having beer or sunbathe in parks. I decided to do something different take my 5D Mark III out for a city-spin. It’s mostly my work, filming and studio camera, so I’ve been using a half-decent Lumix for snapshots, but […]

Hadn’t shot digital in such a long time! My new friend Caterina from Kateidoscope asked me to take some pictures of her for her blog (go and check it out, she’s one of those cool, serious, stylish bloggers). Here are some of my favourites. Brighton is a really nice set for this kind of photoshoot since there’s always an empty street with very pretty and cute houses, either very bright and fun or very neutral […]

This is it, the last one. Thank you for accompanying me on my 35mm analog photography trip through the humid and heavily vegetated streets of Manila and the shores of liquid mercury of the Philippines in general. This is a final compilation of photographs taken inside a very beautiful church, the name of which escapes me. Most of them I’m not posting since it was dark and they came out blurry, but I particularly like the […]

Some more 35mm shots from Manila. Have another post coming soon of the church we visited and will get the last two rolls of film from Paris soon so I can finally start posting the pictures of that trip that aren’t portraits of Gabriele. Even though I’d kill to have more portraits of him. One thing that struck me about Manila once you left the “rich district” is how much green there is. It’s a complete contrast […]

Where The River Meets The Sea

In 1998, the World Expo was held in my hometown – Lisbon. I was 7 years old at the time and even though I barely remember anything from my childhood, I still have very clear and fond memories of the days when I visited the then-Expo. The theme of that year was ‘Oceans’, which is quite fitting if you think that not only is Portugal 50% oceanic coast, but Lisbon itself sits at the very […]

A Summer Feeling

These were taken a little before Summer hit Italy at its full force, though the colours of this particular film (a Fuji Velvia 160 if I’m not mistaken) are so warm and cosy it really makes me think of late July afternoons. Though it’s obviously 2015, I’ve been commenting on how these photographs look “straight out of the ’70s” and, fair enough, the print shop’s scanner seems to agree with me. I love this roll […]

The Ghosts of Romans

Took me a while, but finally publishing the black and white 35mm photographs I took on my trip to Ostia Antica, an amazing archaeological site a short drive away from Rome. On one hand, I wish I’d used colour film to capture how breathtaking and well-conserved the frescoed walls and mosaics are, but on the other hand I always prefer black and white when visiting ‘touristic’ sites, especially those that deal with the past – cemeteries, […]
