Hailing from Portugal, Renato is currently based in Berlin, Germany.
Since an early age he showed passion for art and all things creative, using the art of drawing as his “vehicle” of expression. Transporting his surroundings onto a piece of paper was the strongest tool to get him to the point where he is now.
With degrees in Art Direction and Arts, Communication and Design, it's in photography where he finds his true passion.

Freelance photographer since 2005, he has been working in some different photography areas: portrait, advertising, architecture, landscape and also in live performances, like theatre, music and contemporary dance.

He’s a member of the Transient Museum of Art and the Berlin Fotografen. Exhibits regularly since 2003 and his work as been awarded by Epson or Sony among others.
You can find him now working on his last long term project “The End Of The Line”, a photographic survey on the outskirts of Germany’s capital, Berlin.
