First of all, I would like to say that all the photos here of the blog are of my authorship and were taken during my travels, in the places that I show.
This besides being aesthetically beautiful is a guarantee that all the tips I give here were experienced and approved by me. I do not use photos from others nor do I take photos from the internet. This is mainly because as a professional photographer and travel blogger, let me just say that I`ll never suffer from a lack of travel photos…!
I’m a photographer so having only great photos published is a very important matter to me and one of the reason why I created this blog, besides being addicted to traveling and having over the years accumulated a huge collection of great images of incredibles places that I thought was worth sharing with you.
Photography has always been a passion of mine, since I was a child. My first camera was a Minnie Mouse one, analogical, and it kills me that I do not know where it ended up, since I collect old cameras… But for years photography was no more than a hobby, it only became work after I graduated in architecture in 2007. Disillusioned with the profession, I started taking pictures again as a way to occupy my time while deciding what to do in life.
It turns out that destiny decided to give a little push and with the arrival of social networks like Orkut and Flickr (Facebook was not yet used in Brazil at that time), people began to see my photos and get interested in my work – which at the time I didn`t even considered a job. For this, being a perfectionist as I am, I decided to study digital photography and some other courses like studio lighting, so I would feel more confident about starting to accept charges.
I always had the desire to study abroad, so while studying photography I decided in 2009 to spend a year doing a master`s degree in Barcelona, a journey that changed my life and my future. I fell in love with the city, the lifestyle and the possibility of having everything so much closer and more accessible so I would be able to travel and explore the world – another of my passions. It was from these trips that the idea of creating the Guiri Insider was born, uniting 3 great passions of mine: Photographing, traveling and writing.
