So you got here to know more about the guy you consider as your photographer. Thank you, it’s a big honor.
But I'm still looking for the right answer to the question: Hey Tiago, who are you?
But to be honest, I like more the idea of having questions in mind than having a lot of answers. This is part of who I am, and because of all these questions, I'm driven to look for new cultures, places, movies, sounds, flavors. I'm a very curious guy and have a loud mind. I'm always changing, sometimes because I want and other times life pushes me to change.
Of course, I have some obvious answers to help me know who I am: I'm the father of an amazing guy who loves soccer, smart as f*ck, and so adorable, I'm the youngest son of a woman that showed to me, to my sister and to my brother, that you can be sweet and kind for life and smile while you are tough and face hard times, as when we lost our dad. Thank you for everything mom, I love you so much!
Why do I take pictures? Well, for this I already have some answers despite the time gives me more and takes them away as well. But the main reason is here inside my heart since the first click. The camera is the perfect excuse to be in places I would not be allowed to be without it and in these places I make amazing connections. Sometimes they last only for a day, sometimes we take them for life. But all of them are beautiful and make my heart beat strong. I love taking pictures of people and their connections. That's why I am a photographer.
I’m from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I love traveling. On one of these trips around the globe, life brought me to Las Vegas, surrounded by deserts, the opposite of Rio with so many amazing beaches. I felt a strong connection to this place I call home now. So many creative people, literally from the whole world, come here to live or visit every day. I found my second half here, Robyn. My love and partner! She is my ground and also takes my mind to space. This awesome woman also gave me the gift of having two awesome guys in my life with whom I learn and share great experiences with.
This is part of who I am today. Part of my life. Part of my photography. I can't wait for what tomorrow can bring us.
