            I graduated in journalism from the Methodist University in São Paulo.

            In 2017 complete 32 years as a professional photojurnalist

            I went through the newsrooms of the DCI Group, Editora Globo, Folha de S. Paulo, O Estado de S. Paulo (photo editor) and Agency Brazil in Brasilia (image manager).             

            I was present at important events in the national and internatinal journalism: World Cup 1998 / France; 2002 / Korea-Japan; Olympic Games Sidney / 2000; Visits of Popes Benedict XVI (2007) and Francisco (2013); agrarian and indigenous conflicts;  PC Farias and his involvement with the Italian mafia (Grand Journalism Sheet Award); Eldorado dos Carajás massacre; impeachment of President Dilma Rousseff and others.             From 1994 to 1999 I worked at the Folha de S. Paulo in Brasilia's office, covering politics and economics.

            In 2003 I was the only Brazilian photographer to cover the Iraq War along with Sérgio Dávila, current executive editor of Folha de S. Paulo. The coverage earned the ESSO Award Reporting and publication of the book 'Diary of Baghdad'.   I returned to Iraq in 2005, 2010 and March / 2013, following the development of the American occupation and the ten years of war.            

            I was founder and partner of Fotos Públicas Portal -            

            I won three times the Comunique-se Award as reporter Image and was a finalist in nine editions.

            Also won the prizes of the CNT, Abal, Big Leaf Award and Photography Leaf Award.            

            In 2009 I covered the famine in Ethiopia and my photos are in the book 'The World is not Flat', Jamil Chad.             

            I lived in Angola (2012) and Panama (2014) where I worked in their respective presidential campaigns.             I was in great international coverages in more than 30 countries.             

            Currently I am independent photojournalist and image consultant and editor in editorial and corporate segment.

            I am still as speaker and contributor to the Folha de S. Paulo and develop personal projects.

             With the experience of over 30 years in photojournalism in significant coverageS in Brazil and abroad, including nearly eight years as editor and team manager, I offer this professional career to my clients in the following segments:
                                                                               images Editorial

                                                         · Run everyday or special multimedia guidelines.
                                                                    Corporate and Studio Photos

                                                        · I produce and do consulting corporate images with preplanning and based on                                                                               speed, quality and cost.

                           My professional journey allows me to share experiences through which I passed that add information and knowledge to various professionals and academic sectors, and not only those linked to journalism.
                           There were many complex coverages that required a high degree of planning, creativity, quick and right decisions, the results were not only the success or failure of the mission, but if you is still alive or not.
                          The various environments in which I worked, both in management, team management, political environments and government as well as the field in indigenous conflicts and land, four Iraqi War steps, two World Cups, the Olympics and many other situations on adverse or hostile land inspire me to share them:
