WHAT WAS YOUR FAVORITE SHOW DURING SPFW?
My favorite show was the brand Cavalera. Much like their parades, Cavalera always has some surprise and the scenery is always beautiful.
WHAT IS THE MOST EXCITING PART OF SHOOTING FASHION WEEK?
The most exciting part is when the world-famous models enter the parade, such as, Gisele Bundchen. Their attitude in the parade infects everyone, even us photographers.
WHAT IS THE MOST STRESSFUL PART?
The most stressful part are the queues we face for the major brands. There is always a large number of photographers and the queue is large.
ANY NEW MODELS TO PAY ATTENTION TO?
Models that stood out in this latest edition were Waleska Gorczevski, Amanda Sanchez, Cristina Herrmann, and Carolina Melchior.
WHICH DO YOU PREFER AND WHY – BACKSTAGE OR RUNWAY?
I loved the environment backstage, but what I really loved most were the shows. I think every show is very different. The Designers brought surprises and always tried to do something unique. That allowed me to take very creative photos. Both Runway and Backstage allowed me to create very beautiful photos.
WHAT MADE YOU WANT TO BECOME A PHOTOGRAPHER?
What made me become a photographer was the love I have for photography and art. Being able to work with what we really love is amazing. Every day is a discovery and I see how the picture makes us a better person. Photography has a power beyond what we imagine. I can not say that I choose the photograph, but that the picture chose me.
WHAT WOULD BE YOUR DREAM SHOOT TO DO?
My dream is to photograph fashion week in New York; I find the parades amazing. Of course, I have many other dreams, such as photographing fashion campaigns of internationally renowned brands.
WHAT IS SPECIAL ABOUT FASHION IN SAO PAOLO?
The Sao Paolo fashion week is special beyond their parades with reputable brands in the fashion market, has the presence of many top models as well as beginners models that stand out after a parade. Despite some problems I think Sao Paolo is one of the main fashion week in the world, I think the fashion market in Brazil is growing far beyond the Brazilian models always be among the best in the world.
WHAT WAS THE FIRST SHOOT YOU EVER DID?
I took behind the scenes photographs at fashion week. I always try arriving to an event early in order to learn more about the models and to adapt myself into the environment.
WHAT ADVICE DO YOU HAVE FOR ANY STARTING OUT PHOTOGRAPHERS?
The advice I would give to photographers who are beginning would be to seek contacts with people linked to fashion. That way you have an opportunity to create a fashion portfolio. After that, things tend to happen of course, but that all depends on your dedication and commitment; as in everything in life.
