My name is Luís Otavio Machado, I’m Brazilian and live in São Paulo, one of the biggest cities in the world.
As I am graduated in filmmaking, images are my life, my brain works in an odd kind of “scene mode” all the time, and photography is a great way to make theses images come out of my mind!
I am not a pro photographer, but this activity is getting a bigger importance in my life as the time passes, and when we notice that our work pleases others eyes, the satisfaction makes us produce even more, and always try to get better.
I don’t follow one specific line, I like to shoot what call my attention, and I also have some series. In this set you can see a bit of my work in black and white, which, for me, is the most dramatic way to freeze a moment and save it forever! Hope you like my work! Cheers from Brazil!

To know more about my work, please access my flickr page and my vimeo page .
