Luiz C. Ribeiro
Based in the New York city area I cover a wide range of subjects and major national and international news. After working as staff photographer/photo editor for 20 years at the New York Post, I decided to take my work experience to new heights.
Currently I’m a freelance photographer with AP Images, Invision Photo Agency and Folha Press (Brazil) and regularly I work for various non-profit organizations and large corporations.
My photos have appeared in nearly every major national and international publication including USA Today, The New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Rolling Stone, US News & World Report, Time Magazine, Newsweek, Exame, Veja, Folha de São Paulo, books and many other publications.
I’m a member of the National Press Photographer Association, The White House News Photographers Association, The New York Press Photographers Association, ARFOC – Associação de Reporters Fotograficos – Minas Gerais (Brazil), FENAJ – Federação Nacional dos Jornalistas – Brazil.
I do speak fluently English, Portuguese and Spanish and limited work knowledge of French and Italian.
I hope all is well. As you all know the 2014 World Cup is just around corner.
I am a Brazilian born photographer who is passionate about soccer and capable to communicate as a local. Being fluent in Portuguese makes a huge difference in news coverage in a country where only about 2% of the population can communicate in English, fluent speakers are less than 1%. In a small town away from the big cities you would have a real hard time finding someone that speaks any English at all.
I’ll be in Brazil from June 01 to July 31 and readily available for assignments anywhere around the country. I was a photographer for the New York Post for over 20 years, 4 years freelancing with the Associated Press, 4 years with Getty Images and also 4 years with WireImage. I’m also fully credited as a photojournalist in Brazil.
As you know equipment is extremely important. During my trip I’ll be equipped with: 1-Canon EOS1DX, 1-Canon EOS 5DMKIII, lenses, 20mm-F2.8, 24mm-F1.4, 35mm-F1.4, 40mm-F2.8, 50mm-F1.2, 70-200mm-F2.8, 120-300mm-F2.8, Flashes, 1 Apple MacBook pro. 1-Fuji Camera Xpro1, lenses 18mm F2.0, 35mmF1.4. All the equipment listed is fully insured and I have full range to use any of the above to cover any type of assignments.
Enclose you find a link to my website and my contacts:
(917)747-2391-Cell which will be fully operational in Brazil.
Thank You for your time, and hope to hear from you soon.
All the best,
PS: From June 12 to June 24, I’ll not be available for assignments.
