Paulo Rui Martins



Born in Lisbon, Portugal, everything started at the age of 16 with the opportunity to make photographs for the first time - with a Carl Zeiss he borrow from his Dad - experience that fascinated him and awakened the interest for photography. Later on he worked in laboratories of photography, where naturally acquired some technical knowledge and had the opportunity to learn a lot with professionals. Then, for two decades, he drove his career to the field of technology and stop making photos but about 7 years ago his passion "reborned" and has become increasingly serious, first as the "escape" from the intense life that he was having professionally and today as a commitment he decided to take. The themes that he really loves when goes outdoors are landscapes and seascapes, where he always tries to create moods with impact. Having a natural gift for seeing things differently, he also loves to break the rules of photography to achieve his results, and the truth is that he has several works considered by experts as true pieces of art. Since 2008 that his work has been published in national and international magazines and in books too. In 2011 participated in a competition having won an honorable mention. His first exhibition happened on April 2011 in Lisbon.
