Danilo Faria

Welcome to my portfolio!
Above all, I love to explore the outdoors. Photography has pushed me to go places I otherwise would never think of going to. Since taking photography seriously, I have backpacked and hiked to incredible places, met great people and enjoyed nature like never before.
My love for photography took off dramatically when was I given a digital SLR camera, which has allowed me to bring me to print all the colors, textures, drama, and beautiful scenes that I was seeing. I love to use filters, and I do a fairly large amount long exposure photography so I can capture one element that conventional photography does not: time moving.

I was born and grew up in Minas Gerais – Brazil, which is where my love for photography began, but I have been living in the US for over 18 years now. As a child, my dad and I would take pictures on vacation with his simple point and shoot Kodak camera. Back then that is all we had-equipment and film was too expensive, but we made the best of it, and so my passion began. Photography is my escape, it takes me to incredible places, and is where I can express some of my creativity. When the D-SLR revolution happened, I was able to justify the investment and never looked back. However, in my full-time day job I work as a Systems Engineer for a biomedical company.
