American Assassin

I think that no other word would suit this case, but repudiation... This what I am feeling about this american assassin who killed the male lion in Zimbabwe few days ago. I still asking myself what this guy have inside his head. It is very sad when you see that we still have cases about brutality, cruelty and poaching against those magnificent animals. -  I have choose the lion as a symbol of my business, which means a lot for me, specially the black mane lion, the one he killed.

Inspiring people to love the planet through our images, and teaching the youngsters to care about nature and its species is part of our mission, which I believe we are succeeding.

The right angle!

We had our II workshop for beginners this weekend focusing wildlife photography which was very well attended and with incredible results. I was quite surprised how people can get it done after they understand the simple mechanism of speed / aperture / light...

I was surprised to see this little boy attending my second Photography Workshop this weekend in Santos. Of course his interest was not in photography itself, but in the subjects which we were discussing about. Yes, a 8 years old boy following our project and interested to learn more about wildlife, this is what we are talking about. It is all about passion!

My little friend...

This is Murilo, one of my boys from the Creche, maybe one of my assistants in Africa, why not?!
