I am an Oakland-based portrait and lifestyle photographer. I've always been fascinated by stories and the emotions that make them so moving and memorable. Perhaps this is why I chose to study Journalism and Communication in the early millennium. That time in college solidified my passion for visual storytelling and photography. As the decade progressed, I advanced my professional career in my home country, Brazil, working with the Press Office and Marketing, where I had numerous opportunities to use my photography skills in corporate events and branding shoots. Today, I am content and fulfilled because I am able to work directly with my clients and tell their stories with the same professionalism and a lot more love.

Ok, so Matt is not the best photographer on Snappr. That's because he's also the CEO of Snappr, so he doesn't have as much time to shoot as he'd like. But if you're a fan of "Undercover Boss" vibes and/or can't find anyone else, he'll do you a half-good event shoot. Specializes in low-light, naturally lit event shoots at nighttime.

Hello, I am a San Francisco Bay Area based Editorial, Portrait, Lifestyle, and Food/Bev Photographer. I spent five years in NYC getting my skills honed into the style and fashion from the big apple. Originally, from San Francisco area, I am back to Bay Area, and excited to share some of my NY style with the SF vibes. I have extensive work with commercial - both marketing campaigns and product - as well as food and beverage. My passion comes from traveling and capturing moments, things, places I wanted people to see even if they were not there. I like to show up ready to go and with energy to help clients through the process. There is nothing more unnerving for clients than having their business budgets and marketing budgets rely upon my work. Realizing this, I engage frequently and communicate thoroughly with the teams on shoots and projects. Highlights of my photography experience and skills: 1. Versatile in working with multiple creative teams and have extensive experience with Art and Creative Directors as well as Marketing executives. 2. Worked with & developed large teams with MUA, assistants, and models. 3. Have expertise in photo editing for clients within Lightroom and Photoshop. Ability to use Indesign as well for layouts and other creative additions to projects.

Photographer

How did you get started with photography

I began my photographic journey while studying abroad in Amsterdam in 2008. I had purchased my first dSLR for the trip and found myself behind the viewfinder most of the time instead of practicing music (the reason I was there).

What do you love about your job?

I love meeting new people and forming a bond between me and my subjects, even if it's only for a brief time. It's challenging to photograph people you don't know in a way that makes your subject look honest and true. There's a level of trust that must be achieved before this can happen, and I enjoy creating that relationship. That's what I strive to do with my portraits and whenever photographing people.

What are some of your favorite places in San Francisco to take photographs?

There are so many great places in San Francisco to photograph. Some of my favorites include: Marshall's Beach, Crissy Field, Land's End, Golden Gate Park, North Beach, Fort Mason, and many other parks and neighborhoods that dot the SF landscape.
