My name is Padu. I'm a creator. I create software everyday. I create images that reflect what I see, ocasionally. I create moments, often times shared with my lovely family. I was born and raised in Brazil, and naturally my photographic inspirations are Sebastião Salgado and Klaus Mitteldorf. Ansel Adams and Henry Cartier-Bresson also played an important role in my inspiration, if I have any. Photography in my life was in hibernation state up to now, when I decided that I should get back in shape and dive deep into the digital world. I photograph using a Minolta Maxxum 7 (35mm) and a Sony Alpha A100 (dslr). Recently, I have also started to experiment with an old 4x5 view camera and a Voighlander Bessa R rangefinder.
