Sorry this pro can’t do your job, but we know other pros who can.
Introduction: Portuguese-American artist with a European education and a bold, minimalist style perfectly suited for the American entrepreneur. :) I started as a web and graphic designer to fulfill my desire to have a career that is artistic, technical, and visual. As a web designer, I bought a camera and began taking photos in order to add image content for my clients’ websites. As a fan of music, I also began experimenting with photography at small local concerts. After receiving complimentary feedback about these website and live music photos, I decided to pursue photography professionally. I strengthened and developed my skills by attending workshops, enrolling in professional online courses, and test shooting in the studio with musicians, friends, and my crazy family. I am available to travel anywhere in Virginia and DC and can shoot both digital and film. I want to take the time to get to know you. It's totally fine to tell me you don't know how to pose. I’m here to help you. Let me know if there’s anything I can do to help you feel more comfortable in being your silly self.

Andre was great to work with. He took care of the photos for a commercial project we completed in Fredericksburg, VA. The photos are exactly what we were looking for; and will be used on our company website. Communication was great and the price was right in our budget. Just all around job, and would definitely recommend Andre. Thank you again.

Andre was an absolute blast. We did early morning photos and I know sometimes that can kill momentum but he had such energy and was very interactive with us. He helped us to be comfortable and it was great to watch him embrace the surroundings and use it to every advantage he could to take the best shots. Andre thank you so much!

My husband and I celebrated our 15th Wedding Anniversary in September, and Andre was absolutely amazing to work with. The price was reasonable, and he really cares about his customers. Our photos came out beautiful, and we thank him for such a wonderful experience, especially it being our first time in awhile taking professional photos. I would use him again in a heart beat. He's an all around wonderful guy and professional.

Andre is RIDICULOUSLY talented and such a joy to work with. Vision is something that can't be taught or trained, and Andre has VISION. Throughout the shoot, I can see him eyeing different spots and thinking, and I knew it would come out magically. Rarely do I ever let someone else take the reins, but I wholeheartedly trusted Andre. I'm starting these yearly photoshoots so that if I have memory loss at an old age, I will have these photos. These pictures, in this surreal setup, is how I want to remember myself, and Andre brought everything to life. Andre, thank you for choosing Art.

Details: Glamour • Photo studio • 1 person • No outfit changes • Digital or online download • My home, venue, etc.

Andre was fantastic! I take photos for my birthday every year and I am beyond happy with the quality and outcome of the work. I told him what I was looking for, he suggested an awesome location, and we had pleasant conversation throughout. I’m not a great poser, but he simplified everything and made everything look and feel natural. Thanks again! ⭐️ ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

FAQs

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    You will receive lots of benefits. I am able to travel anywhere in Virginia and DC. The pictures will be edited. You will have a gallery website. You can share the website with friends and Family. You can buy prints on the website though you have the freedom to print the pictures anywhere you like.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    I want to take the time to know you. It's totally fine to tell me you don't know how to pose. I'm not going to say I will guide you during the shoot, instead, I want to know who you are and get to know each other so you will be much more comfortable in being your silly self during the shoot which you will end up amazing natural pictures.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I started as a web and graphic designer. I wanted something to work on a job that is artistic and technical at the same time. I wanted to work on something more visual than communication. I learned a lot going to workshops, buying professional online courses and lots of training in the studio.
