My name is Carlos Dias and I was born in 1988.
I'm a professional photographer based in Coimbra, Portugal.
Since I remember, photography and travels always made a part of my life. Two passions inherited from my father.
In 2010, I bought my first DSLR camera and started mainly as an amateur sports photographer.
Only in the ends of 2012 I took my first steps into landscape photography and found out my love for mountains and hikings when I decided to discovery Serra da Estrela Natural Park!
Nowadays, whenever it's possible I like to spend my time trekking and hiking to discover new places to photograph. I always grew up in a rural area and maybe for that reason I feel so connected to the landscape and outdoor photography. I consider myself as a nature lover!
In 2014, I concluded my master degree in Veterinary Medicine. Despite it be the accomplish of one of my life's dreams, I had the desire to do something more! The clinic walls and the same routine everyday was killing me and so I decided to take the risk following what my hearth was saying and chose the photography!
Since then I have especialized in landscape, nightscape and timelapse photography.
I release my first timelapse video in November 2014 called "Breathing other world" who was elected as video of the week by The Awardeo Company.
I also has experience in Real Estate, 360 Panorama and Virtual Tour Photography.
In 2017 I was certified by Google as Google Trusted Photographer.
More recently, since mid-2017, I started to photograph music concerts and live performances and is something that surprisingly I am enjoying very much.
I also was author of several individual exhibitions about Landscape and Nightscape photography.
