Do you want to be an artist?




Be aware of this:
1._ People who need to make art make art no matter what.

2._Do you want to know how to be an artist? Make art. Do it because you need to do it.
3._Your art reflects your surroundings, and you can live like a pauper, but that limits the range of your art.

Rock!!!

I am not a musician but I would like to have the talent to create melodies for the spirit, to express the anger, sadness and loneliness. That desire is the reason of my interest in photograph musicians and rock bands during their shows, because if I am not able to make songs at least I can try to show the bands and express what their songs want to say by means of an image and at the same time express myself.
In this selection of photographs, the light, color and shadows are as well subjects together with the musicians which does not compete with them but create a stronger message.
Music and photography have been always linked in personal work and this photographs is a small sample of my interest for create or capture images that represent the musicians and their music and help me to express myself through the photography.

She is a model friend from Portugal called Neuza.
The photo-shoot took place in a small room illuminated mainly by a window and a small bounced on the ceiling and wall to fill the shadows. Nothing complicated.
