Rui de Vasconcelos Serra Ribeiro, born in Lisbon.

Award-winning fine art photographer

I'm a Father, husband and pet lover. I adopted a Portuguese Water Dog named Cachupín. Dreamy and communicative, I love Travel, Cinema and Arts in general.

Since the age of 9, I began capturing images, influenced by my father.

I began my professional training in photography at Ar.Co - Centro de Arte & Visual Communication in Lisbon. It is in photography that I find my means of artistic expression. In 1987, living on the Island of Jersey CI, I won the first prize in an international photographic competition. Several awards and honourable mentions follow.

In 1990, I began my professional career, as a Studio Director, carrying out product photography work. I have has author, photography works published, at the invitation of the magazine "Egoísta'', awarded nationally and internationally for its editorial and graphic originality.

In 2010, I moved to Faro. In the following year, I join the training course, and start giving photography training to beginner and professional courses.

In 2012, I carried out the photographic project “Saudade Guitarra Portuguesa”, prefaced by the master António Chaínho, on the RTP1 show, Praça da Alegria and had his presence in the inaugural exhibition at the Lethes theatre in Faro, with a memorable recital.

I'm currently a photography teacher at the Gil Eanes Professional School in Portimão, while I continue my professional activity between wedding photography, events, photo sessions and dreams.

I believe that photographic experience, accumulated over the years, is only useful in conjunction with a permanent update of techniques and aesthetic trends.
