About me
I started taking pictures at a young age, inspired by my parents who both worked as wedding photographers. In parallel with independent projects as still photographer and cinematographer, I started working as camera assistant during my bachelor's degree in Film Studies (2009-2013). I've worked in commercials and film productions in Brazil for over a decade, seeking abroad experience, which includes a state grant to attend the Advanced Cinematography workshop at Maine Media (USA) in 2015. Also, I was a scholarship cinematography student in the European master's program Kino Eyes (PT, EE, SCT 2018-2020). Recently, I was part of Castello Errante film residency in Italy. Most of the times, you can find me in Lisbon, São Paulo and Florianópolis. ​ ​ Highlights: 2021 – Best Drama at Berlin Sci-fi filmfest (Terminal Happiness) 2020 - Best Cinematography 48 hour challenge Lisbon (Food For Thought) 2020 - Official Selection Camerimage Festival (Terminal Happiness) 2015 - Best Cinematography Short Films FAM Festival Audiovisual Mercosul (O voo da Borboleta) 2014 - 2nd best still series film photography Florianópolis Photography Marathon Member: Brazilian Cinematography Association - ABC Brazilian Collective of Female Cinematographers - DAFB The International Collective of Female Cinematographers - ICFC
