My name is Daniel Santos, I’m a Portuguese nature and sports photographer based in a small village close to the beautiful city of Porto. I always loved to be in contact with nature and since I was a child I wanted to be a biologist. In 2011, I finally started studying biology at the University of Porto, where I discovered photography. Since I bought my first camera I have been experiencing the best of the two worlds.
With my work I hope, not only to show the true beauty of nature, but also make people aware of the ecological problems the planet is facing. I pretend to have an active voice and fight for nature conservation.
It is difficult for me to describe my style, but I always try to capture as much as possible the environment the subjects live in, not forgetting the use of interesting and creative light and compositions.
I also photograph sports, being a category of photography I really enjoy. I have practiced sports all my life, like football and swimming, but in the last years I’m more into mountain/adventure sports, namely rock climbing and trekking. As with nature photography, I always look beyond the obvious and I’m always looking for new and creative perspectives to capture emotion and action.
