I photograph native cultures in tropical Africa and Latin America (traditional, tribal, village life: daily activities; indigenous people). I am not staging action, but instead I let impromptu situations happen, getting a feeling as close as possible of life in villages or of interaction with the environment, not imposing my presence.

I also take pictures of tropical nature with an emphasis on the relationship between the elements of the picture, taking an ecological approach: biomes, ecology: photographs of rainforest and deforestation, savanna, desert, aquatic, mountain vegetation: life forms, foliage flowers) in tropical countries (Latin America, Africa, some Asia).

Also some economic aspects of Brazil.

My main markets for stock photography are education (including online and textbooks) and travel publications; I am careful to correctly identify photographs with scientific name whenever relevant and possible, consulting a specialist if necessary. I will do additional research if requested. The page of links and books presents related scientific articles written by specialists, if available,  and verified for legitimacy. Besides the main galleries of tropical cultures and tropical nature, I present smaller galleries of Europe and USA, of Asia and of automobile racing and rally.

I recently started dividing the Africa and the South American Indians galleries into ethnic or regional groups, adding images as I go through my files.

I also recently added additional or peripheral information with links to relevant articles or books on some galleries (presently: Africa: People of the Sahel - Kanem and Lake Chad and The Hoti of the Guiana Highlands of Venezuela) in my blog.
