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.
