I love travelling the world, and I lived for many years in New York and a fast passage through Europe. Photographing for me is a passion, many more than making money. I think you need to be passionate about photography to be able to convey the feeling that comes with it, whether in social or fashion photography

Rodrigo, what are your passion and aspiration in life? How did you start as a Photographer?

I started when I was 18 years old, when I went to live on a beach in the south coast of Brazil, I shared the house with a surf photographer, when I went back to college at age 19, I studied advertising and advertising, but already I was in love with photography, and soon I had the opportunity to go to live in New York City where I began to study photography, after years I returned to Brazil and began to photograph weddings with a great photographer of Brazilian and international celebrities

Who is your inspiration in life Rodrigo? How do you keep inspired?

my inspiration comes today from the joy in living and being able to thrill people with photography, to be present in the moments of the people and to be able to perpetuate what happens and to bring the feeling of that moment, for me it is priceless

We all make mistakes Rodrigo, we wish we could take back. Please tell us about time being a Photographer; you wish you’d handled a situation differently with a colleague.

I would like to have invested more in the photography school when I was in NYC; I ended up leaving the school to work and support the family at that time.

Rodrigo, when you’re working with a large number of clients, it’s tricky to deliver excellent service to them all. As a Photographer, how do you go about prioritising your clients’ needs?

the client is the basis of everything; I seek to make my work and production post work be the most pleasant for the client, seeking to satisfy all their needs

Please tell us, Rodrigo, about a time you had to be very strategic in order to meet all your top priorities as a Photographer?

I did not understand the question

rodrigo, please give us an example of a time when you were able to persuade someone to see things your way at work successfully.

Once a photo producer wanted to do the photo session in studio and me with the much convincing argument of photographing in the external area. in the end, he thanked me for the beautiful photos that do not expect the result as good as it got

rodrigo, please tell us about your proudest professional accomplishment as a Photographer. There might be many, but there is always this proudest moment that you want to share with everyone. What is it and why?

the unforgettable moment of a photographer who was a father is to make an image of the birth of his children, I remember those days well, wanting to record the moment and the nervousness of father at the same time.

Rodrigo, please give us an example of a time you were able to be creative with your work. What was exciting or difficult about it?

the time must be able to be creative, is when in surfing, soi have time to think

What advice would you give to the people who want to be successful as a Photographer?

the advice I can give to anyone who wants to be a great photographer is to do with passion, forget the money, money in photography is the result of a good job, but only will be good, if you put passion in what makes

Are you looking for collaboration with fashion talents, brands and creatives? If yes, please state below what type of collaboration you are looking for?

all will always be welcome
