I´m André Boto, a freelance Photographer from Portugal working in following areas: Conceptual/Creative, Commercial, Architecture, Interiors, Industrial, Decoration Projects, Portrait and Post-Production in Photoshop.I was always interested in the arts and design, devoting much time to the drawing. For me, it´s really challenging to create/re-create our own worldsbased on optical illusion, I´m fascinated with Surrealism.In 2007 I finished a degree in Decorative Arts, in "Escola Superior de Educação deBeja". In 2008 I moved to Lisbon and complete the Advanced Photography (2008) Conceptual Photography (2009) courses, both in Oficina da Imagem.At this moment, my goal it´s to produce a differentiated and highquality work, different from other authors.
