Hey guys, The other week I went out with my friend Alexandre to take some portraits. It came to my attention that people have a harder time directing and posing males than they do females. Why? Well It could be for a few reasons.
Bar Boa Vista is a public pool area with an onsite bar/cafe in Ribeiras, Santa Cruz (Ilha do Pico, Azores.)
The other week Bar Boa Vista invited a local band, a great group of friends, to put on a concert. When I arrived people were still piling in and by sunset everyone in the audience was awaiting for the show to begin.
The night was truly special and a complete success for “Maraus.”
Pictured below are moments before, during, and after the concert.

Here is a collection of photos I’ve taken since arriving in Pico.
It’s already been more than a month here on the island and I’m grateful for my family & friends for making my time memorable.
This place was the catalyst for taking up photography, starting this website/blog and learning how to express myself creatively. Its a great pleasure to share these photos with you guys and hopefully inspire you to come visit one day.

A study in travel , color, and love. Documented in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, & New York. This collection of photos archives moments I spent with my family and friends during my visit to New England.
I haven’t experimented with many black & white film stocks since picking up film photography. Infact, besides digital edits, I don’t have much practice with b&w photography in general. One thing I noticed was how I was more concerned with different shades rather than color. This simple adjustment changed how I looked through the viewfinder.
There’s something to learn from exclusively shooting in b&w and it makes me excited that I’m just beginning to pick it up!
Art aims to capture and express the human condition from infinite perspectives.
Photography, like all other artistic forms, contributes to that aim everyday and plays a fundamental role in forming how we perceive ourselves and the world around us. When used as a therapeutic practice, photography introduces presence, or what you could call mindfulness, awareness, and self-expression.
The other week I took to the streets of Newport, RI with a 50mm lens. The following images are scenes I captured throughout the day with no particular plan, intention, or subject. Many of my photowalks I consider to be improvisational exercises that help me notice beauty and meaning in the everyday, ordinary world.
