Bla- What was your inspiration to do this exhibition?
Luiz- My Travels basically. I would like to show everybody my travel photos so they can identify with the places and maybe travel to these countries.
Bla- How many countries do you portray in your exhibition?
Luiz- You can see here around six countries. Brazil, France, Netherlands, Costa Rica, Turkey and of course United States.
Bla- In this exhibition, which is your favorite photo?
Luiz- That’s a difficult question! I needed to choose from 18 thousands photos and now you’re asking me to choose only one?! (laughs) Well, I like that one, the child running in Paris and this one, in Arizona canyon.
Bla- And now, in what are you focusing your career on?
Luiz- I’m a freelancer, I have my own company so I’m focusing in my news projects and clients. I'm learning, I’m always learning. The career and life are a school and I keep learning. Everywhere I go for a new shooting I still learn new things. I like to portray people, see new places and experience food, smells.
Bla wishes all the success in the world, Luiz! #Cheers#BlaAdoresYOU!
