Water ! Wow..it can do magic!
Some soft and slow movements under this crystal clear environment can turn single things into a enchanted ones…
Just because the flow
The hair, the dress, the props… following the water movement render beautiful ethereal images
I will teach the main techniques to photograph underwater: How to give directions to the models, what props could be interesting to use, what angles to shot and much more !
We will be doing this at the hotel’s swimming pool, and you are invited to dive with me and experience to take some incredible underwater shots.
I am a professional photographer since 2011 when I quit my job at the Art department of a Brazilian TV station to manage my own business. I do newborn, maternity and family photography. I’ve been doing underwater portraits for almost 2 years
I started it as an autoral project but soon I was “captured” for this amazing magic ethereal environment ! I love it!
I am married but we couldn’t have children… it’s ok, I have nice sweet nephews and nieces…who fills our heart with love and fun. We play a lot with them! And I have a black cat who gives me lucky !!!
My favorite part of job is during the session when we are so connect that almost forget the time
Marketing tip: give more than they expect. Give the client a nice experience, not just the pictures .Give them something to remember !
smalls animals toys we put on their hands
I hope my future is like my present! Happy and fun
Do what you love.
It’s not ease all the time, may not be fun during the whole process but I garante its the better choice to find happiness most of the time
I wish I knew more about running a business.
