My Portuguese, Spanish and Frenchheritage have also contributed to my photographic vision and way of life. Since I was a child,I’ve been fortunate to have traveled quite a bit and this has also played an important role in myphotographic career. Though I have previously exhibited and sold several oil paintings, my passion has always beenphotography. My photography career started in the mid 1980‘s when I started experimentingwith a new camera. Of course, back then, I only had film to shoot and my model was my poorsister who kindly "volunteered" her time to sit under my hot lights.  The room would get terriblywarm from the lights so a lot of time was spent just trying to stay cool. The days spent waiting toget the pictures back from the lab were filled with anticipation; I wanted to see if my settingswere good enough to render a decent photo.  Sometimes the results were good and sometimesthey were not but I learned what worked and what didn't.  It was like Christmas morning everytime a new roll of film was developed and I got to see the results. While in college, I would devour books on photography in an attempt to learn as much as Icould. After earning a degree in Marketing, I started taking non-credit photography classes atthe local college which really opened my eyes to the beauty that I could capture with mycamera. I quickly gained clients and started building a solid portfolio of headshots, portraits andweddings. In the early 1990’s, I opened a photo studio, Vizuel Images, in prestigious CoralGables, Florida where the emphasis was working with up-and-coming models. As is the case with many artists, I felt it was time for a change so I started building mylandscape photography portfolio. By the early 2000’s, my body of work was strong enough foran attempt at a small gallery exhibition. My first exhibit in Fort Lauderdale, Florida was at BrookTrace’s Gallery and was comprised of photography and oil paintings that I had producedspecifically for this venue. More recent group exhibitions included several galleries in FortLauderdale, Key West and Cincinnati. My photography has also been featured at Artexpo NewYork and Blink Art Resource in Cincinnati, Ohio.In March, 2019, I was able to fulfill a lifelong dream of opening my own photography gallery.After searching the state for a suitable place that my work would be well received, I found theperfect spot in Hollywood, Florida, USA. The gallery space was totally renovated to myspecifications. It will be a place to only display my work but to teach others the joy ofphotography. The gallery will maintain a relaxed and contemporary feel where everyone iswelcome to wander in, listen to music, and enjoy the prints on the walls. No pressure, no drama, no hype - just beautiful landscapes from various parts of the world showcasing thebeauty of the natural world that surrounds us.
