Founder, driver, local guide and photographer
Hi there! This is me, born and raised in Avelar, a small old village in central Portugal, with a tradition in the wool industry. It was with my father, driver of one of these companies, that I began to discover the country during the school holidays.
From it I also inherited the taste for photography and the search for the authentic.
I live on passions and emotions. They both live hand in hand on every trip I take.
Passion for all that is beautiful, has been created by man or nature. Emotion in every hug and every smile, every dawn and dusk.
Passion for photography that allows me to record all this, creating memories and telling stories. Emotion in remembering lived experiences!
I believe life is made up of experiences. A walk through breathtaking scenarios, tasting a wine after years of work, a steaming roast whose recipe has passed from generation to generation, a castle where you can almost hear the cries of battles of yore, a walk through century old trees, stone floors trodden for millennia, a landscape drawn by nature...
And then, curiosity: where does that road go? What's out there on that hill? Who lives in that village? I'm going to find out! Find out to meet. Meet to share with you!
This is WellCam's philosophy, my starting point, that leads me to want to show the charms and corners of my country. A country that I want to be also your country while you're here, watching it, living it, tasting it, smells it, eats it, contemplates it and feels it.
Come with me!
