Artist Portrait: Leonardo Domingos
For our weekly portrait, let’s go to Portugal to meet Leonardo Domingos! Born on a farm, he grew up in permanent contact with the nature. These roots are present in almost all his picture.
Leonardo come from Nazaré, a small but famous town in Portugal. Since his childhood, he has been surrounded by nature and has developed a strong taste for adventure and sports. At the age of 15, he went to a school of art, because he really wanted to express himself. At first he wanted to be an architect, but it was before discovering his passion for making videos and photography.
Parallel to his studies, he started doing parkour, a kind of obstacle race, and filming and editing small videos of this discipline. Then he get his first digital single-lens reflex camera, “his baby” as he called it, and had more and more motivation to express his sense of adventure and his reflexion through photography. Now, he is a young photographer, with a great portfolio, that will expand more every day!
