Joao is a Brazilian portrait and lifestyle photographer who has lived in different parts of the world before moving to Vancouver, BC.
He began his journey with photography during his first year in college, after which he worked as an advertising photographer for almost ten years. However, his passion for portrait photography and the endless attempt to find his own creative voice, led him into a completely different path.
Soon after quitting the advertising world, Joao was pulled into the world of portraiture after being inspired by and working with other amazingly creative minds. After that there was no going back, and thus he began to bring the storytelling that he learned from the advertising industry and his passion for movies to create The Diaries Project : a series of simple & unique portraits of individual women's intimate worlds.
