My name is Gonçalo and I’m a Porto-based amateur photographer.

Two of my favourite categories in photography are animal photography and portrait photography.

So whenever the chance presents itself, I pick up my camera and try to capture candid portraits of animals I come across, be it at a farm, a zoo or the streets.

I love capturing the expressions of animals living out their own lives or simply staring back at me as it makes me feel like we share somewhat of a connection in that instant.
