About me

I have a vast experience in technical and creative photo retouching working with Adobe Photoshop (Macintosh OS). As a retoucher I have produced impactful images working for magazine covers, fashion shoots, product and food, advertisement campaigns, and e-commerce among others. This includes high profile work with colour correction, light effects, cropping, manipulation, multiple layer compositions, resizing and illustration. I’m proficient with Adobe Photoshop CC 2015 and Adobe Lightroom   With an artistic background (Fine Arts Faculty) and a great attention to detail I worked directly with photographers and for design and advertising companies as a freelancer as well as part of a team.  Used to work with tight deadlines my problem solving skills and ability to prioritise were noticed and I came to manage a post production department in a design company for five years.   When in 1995 I discovered Adobe Photoshop my illustration skills increased by using all the application's potential. All my illustration work became solely digitally produced.  Exploring the software in depth led me to start working on photography post-production.This is where my illustration skills combined with and enhanced my post production work. Due to my proficiency in Photoshop I was invited in 2005 to create a Photo editing short course for an art school in Lisbon which I taught for three years.   Beyond my enthusiasm for digital I am also an art photographer using analog techniques.  CV: • Freelance Retoucher and Illustrator- 2003-present • Retoucher coordinator for Up inflight mag - (TAP) – 2009-present • Freelance work for Valenmoji Samsung campaign, Cheil London - 2016 • Creative Retouching for Carlsberg advertising campaign, Nossa Agency, Lisbon, Portugal - 2016 • Retouching for the Angola government institutional campaign Angola Faz, Ivity, Portugal - 2012 • Regular Illustrator for the following magazines and newspapers, Portugal, The Netherlands, France - 2000- 2010 Expresso, O Independente, Público, Máxima, Elle, Cosmopolitan, Diário Económico, Exame, Executive Digest, Reader's Digest, Bulles Dingues, Diário de Notícias. • Illustrated the graphic novel book Pop Dell’Arte, published by Diário de Notícias, Portugal –2010 • Retouching assistant on location for Nivea international campaign, Lisbon, Portugal - 2009 • Developed and taught a short Photo Editing course at AR.CO -Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual (Arts and Visual Communication Centre), Lisbon, Portugal - 2005-2008 • Retouching for the Jameson Irish Whiskey Campaign, Blug, Portugal - 2007 • Illustrated the worldwide packaging for Imaginarium toys, Bloom Consulting, Madrid, Spain - 2007 • Worked as a Storyboard Illustrator/Visualiser and Retoucher for several graphic design, advertising and media agencies: EuroRSCG, Young & Rubicam, Ogilvy, JWT, Blug, Lowe, TBWA, Grey, Born, Ivity, McCann Erickson, Kyoto, NormaJean, Publicis, Fischer, Adore, Way, Silva Designers, Warner Music Portugal, France— 1999-2016 • Retouching manager at Brandia-Novodesign, Lisbon, Portugal- 1996-2001 EDUCATION • FBAUL (Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon) in Communication Design, Lisbon, Portugal - 1991-1995 SKILLS • Adobe Photoshop CS6, Adobe Lightroom, Cinema 4D AWARDS • Featured in the catalog Oporto 2001 Traffic: Critical Anthology for a New Visuality (a selection of 100 Portuguese artists) coordinated by Alexandre Melo, 2001 • Represented Portugal in the category of Comic Strip at the Biennial of Young Artists from Europe and the Mediterranean, Valencia, Spain, 1992 LANGUAGES • Portuguese (Native) • English (Fluent) • French (Fluent) • Spanish (Conversational ability) OTHER ACTIVITIES Art Photographer • Photobook Cidade Sombra published in June 2016 • Individual Exhibition Cidade Sombra at Galeria do Torreão Nascente, Cordoaria Nacional, Lisbon
