Male Photographer in London - Claudio

 

Introduction

I worked as a telecom engineer for most of my professional life, but have been working with photography on the side for about 6-7 years. I slowly transitioned out of engineer to work as a full time photographer. I feel invigorated and can finally understand why everyone always said ‘it is great work on something that you love’.

Experience

I started my photography life helping a friend shooting weddings, events and portraits. It was going so well that I was pretty busy for about 2 – 3 years, and eventually made the career transition.

Education

Graduated (Batchelor) in Electrical Engineering back in Brazil, and have worked with it since then, until finally gave that up to pursue my dream job. Photography wise, I am self taught and I have assisted some great wedding photographers in London, and then moved on to shoot solo and getting some assistants myself.
