Nelson Vilar

Sintra, Portugal

I started shooting at the age of 18, with a small camera. Shortly thereafter, I bought a 35mm one, with interchangeable lenses and manual exposure control, which allowed me more creative freedom.
Under the pretext of shooting I got to know most of the city of Lisbon on foot.
Some years after, in late 1998, photography was no longer a hobby to me, having become instead my profession, especially in the press area.
I like to photograph any kind of landscape, industrial environments and still life.
