When the incredible duo Branco Prata started offering mentorship photography masterclasses, I couldn’t miss the opportunity. Branco Prata’s formidable reputation precedes them as they’ve built an influential multi-disciplinary creative studio based in, Porto, Portugal. Dedicated mostly to weddings, they also have significant work in other areas, and I’m fascinated by their work and their brand. It was also an excellent opportunity to go back to Porto, a city I love and where I’ve had the chance to work several times as a wedding photographer.
I approached them and registered for this rewarding learning activity and head out to Porto on a 2018’s beautiful summer day. André Teixeira is a gifted and experienced wedding film photographer. A generous spirit who shares his knowledge in a gently and willingly way. Sofia Ferreira is a visionary event & floral designer uncommonly talkative and bright. Together they welcomed me into a customized masterclass designed to my needs and expectations. Through the day, they sought to strengthen my brand and to unravel my artistic essence.
It was a fantastic day!
I was very please with the professional and personal interaction. I appreciated the tangible outcome of the experience: an editorial engagement session captured around Porto landmarks taking advantage of its unique light. Branco Prata’s experienced technical and regional tips were handy in future wedding reportages I did as a wedding photographer in Porto.
