“You don’t take a photograph, you make it”

Ansel Adams

Hi, my name is Carlos Santos and I make photographs.

I am a photographer based in Vancouver, Canada and with only 30 seconds of conversation, you will notice that I’m not a Canadian, I am a Brazilian (in case of the Latin name Carlos does not clued you enough) I was born in Brazil at the early 80s, a decade with great cartoons, tv shows, music, and a controversial fashion style.

I love portraits, nothing is more effective than portraits to talk about the zeitgeist and the culture of an era. Another thing I love to do is take the camera to  street and guess what….? Yes, make pictures!

My goal when I make a picture is to take who will observe the image to use more than only a couple of seconds looking at it. If can do it, there it is a successful image.

Outside the photography’s world, I have a Bachelor’s degree in Marketing and Advertising and also extensive acknowledgment in pop culture like comics. My other skills includes a special vision for “easter eggs” in movies and the capacity to drink coffee in dangerous amounts.

Fun facts:

  • Sometimes I shoot using an old film camera just for fun.
  • My favorite movies are the Back to the Future trilogy.
  • I can talk about movies for hours.
  • I worked for 15 years as a web and software developer.
  • Art makes my heart beat faster.

Now you know me better so, let me ask you: Can I do a picture of you?
