Nice to meet you!

Hello! I’m a Brazilian who has been falling in love with photographs. For the last 15 years, I have been living in Brazil, Sweden, Indonesia, and Belgium. Now I’m based in Sweden and Brazil, both countries. In Sweden in the summertime, I am based in Åkersberga and in Brazil also in the summer time, I am based in Penha, Santa Catarina.
In 2010, when we moved to Sweden, I made a decision to make a career change and become a photographer. What did I do before? Well, I studied Mathematics at university and did a Master in Education.
I had a great experience when I studied photography in Stockholm and it was there that I could improve myself as a professional photographer. The natural lights of Sweden are lovely, so magic. There I also had the opportunity to meet great wedding photographers that I worked together with.
2014 when we moved to Jakarta I had a wonderful experience with my camera on the streets. I really like the style of Indonesian photographers, I took some photo courses there too, and I felt that my photography style changed. Thank you, Indonesia!
I’m also proud that I was selected in 2013 to be coached by Vinicius Matos, one of the best wedding photographers in the world. I have improved my skills and learned about photography, images, edition, lightroom, lights, books, films, etc. with him. From 2015 to 2016 I participated in a coaching program called Masterklass with Nestan Nijaradze and Klavdij Sluban in Paris to improve my artistic skills. I’m so happy that I got this opportunity. 2017 I study photography in Belgium at l’atelier photographique Bruxel, Art et Technique, and in 2018 I meet Gal Oppido in Brasil for a great Workshop. 2019 I start my post graduation in photography. How you can see I always like to study and improve my knowledge. So, I can say that in the past years I had learned a lot, not only about photography but also about me, people and life.
In my photo sessions, I want to capture love and passion. I love the details and small things that make our life more passionate. A small flower in a child’s hands, a smile, tears in the eyes, a hug with passion, a delicate kiss are so fascinating.
My inspiration is from the contemporary photography and I’m completely in love with the pictures of André Kertész, Sugimoto, Loretta Lux, among others. I love Monet and his garden in Giverny. Have you noted the lights in the paintings of Monet? Wonderful! And Rembrandt lights? They are fabulous! I love portraits.
I am a person who is committed and dedicated, regardless of my job. I love challenges and am searching for solutions to help me grow as a professional. Every day I try something new that can inspire me. I have so much to learn and to study (always).
We have so much to share from our life and I choose to share it through photographs. Photography for me is a way to get close to people. To stay connected.

So, enjoy my photos and thank you for your time here! Ah, I would also like to say that I speak English, Portuguese, Swedish and also basic French.

Nice to meet you,
Silvia Alcantara
