About

CapaRicardoHi! My name is Ricardo, I’m a Portuguese photographer from Lagos in the southwest Algarve, where you can find the most breath taking coastline. Born in the year of 1978, my interest in photography came up in an early stage of my life and followed me through time, becoming my great passion. Growing up, I was greatly Influenced by the beauty of my surroundings, and, inspired on other great photographers that I admired, it was no surprise when I started dedicating most of my attention to landscape photography. In recent years I had the opportunity to combine this passion with the also great passion of traveling, trying to capture with my camera the beauty of the places I visited.

In 2010 I’ve started working with my wife on completely different project, photographing people on our studio in Lagos – Photo4you – Estudio
This has been a thrilling experience and soon I was also extending this session to the outdoors.

My work in photography had great turn in 2011. Without knowing very well how it happened, I’ve started freelance work on residential and architectural photography, and right away I’ve felt in love with it, becoming a regular collaborator of Airbnb, Holiday Lettings, and other local companys.
