Studio Portrait

About your Mentor
Born in Brazil and now based in Helsinki, Finland, photographer Ricardo Santos has been developing hybrid photography for the past few years; shooting with film, developing and scanning the negatives for digital editing.

The first contact with photography came at a very early age, in 1984, when his dad taught him how to look through the view glass of a Rolleiflex. It wasn’t until Ricardo’s first son was born, that he made the decision of getting a new DSLR camera to record the family memories. After that photography became a serious hobby and it didn’t take long until he decided to explore film photography and the analog world.
