Margarete is an experienced professional photographer, passionate for her craft and for the possibility to freeze moments in a frame, capturing expressive images. She has worked with many clients for over 6 years, in Brazil, her home Town, Perth (WA), Hobart (TAS) and now in Gold Coast (QLD). Among them are, Mitsubishi Brazil, West Australian Football League, MyState Bank and Cricket Tasmania. She recently found herself specialising in Sports and Corporate events. She loves capturing the energy humans create when working together – or participating against one other – where being invisible among them as a photographer is paramount. The anticipation and excitement she feels before pushing the shutter is a very special moment for her - it can come from a sunset, a smiling child or the moment the champion crosses the line. In these moments she feels like everything around her is still and she can only see that picture in her mind, and the energy of the moment in photographic form. When all of these elements come together for the perfect picture the satisfaction it brings lets her know she has followed the right career path.
Photography is a way that I love to use to express myself. My photos give people a chance to see the way I think, and how I see the world. It helps bring attention to the little things that often get overlooked. Even though photography seems to be an automatic process, I am behind the camera, putting my life experiences, what I value and what's important to me in a frame, trying to show the feeling that the moments bring and being able to keep forever through the Image.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many cricket games, for MyState Bank in Tasmania, which was one of the sponsors of the Hobart Hurricanes Team. These games were special because of the atmosphere around the game, and my goal was to capture the feeling of being there, in that energetic stadium and put it in a frame, besides all the necessary photos.
A fun fact about this photographer
I got my first bike when I was 10 years old and it was love at first sight. I liked to ride a bike in my childhood and adolescence, but later that passion was put aside because of the obligations of adult life. But then one day I bought a mountain bike, got back on the bike and the passion came back. I participated in many adventure races in Brazil and here in Australia. Playing sports and getting in touch with nature is part of who I am.
