spotlight magazine Jun 2023 still life photography
"I'm Diego, a Portuguese photographer and photography teacher.
If I could summarise my work in a word, I think it would be "organic". In a world of short attention spans and 'perfect' images created by 3D renders and AI, I strive for authenticity.
Aesthetically, I tend to go for a very clean look, often aiming for that organic feel that I can’t quite put into words.
During 2023, I've been dedicating much of my time to personal projects, as I believe they greatly help to fuel my creativity.
When I'm not creating images, I'm sharing my love for photography with the next generation of photographers, through teaching. It's something that brings me a lot of joy and ultimately keeps me fresh and up to date."

Diego Veríssimo Food, Still Life and Portraiture Photographers
"My name is Diego and I'm a photographer and photography teacher based in Braga, Portugal.
I've been working in the photography industry for over 11 years and been developing my skills in this field ever since.
Commercially, I specialise in still life and portraiture and my personal style revolves around clean and graphic images, often using bold colours.
Growing up in the countryside of Portugal, the idea of "less is more" came often more as a necessity than anything else, but that kind of aesthetic grew on me and led me to create the kind of imagery I do today.
My personal work is a mix of analog and digital techniques and very much inspired by my daily life as well as history and art.
As a teacher, I'm currently working on film developing and black & white darkroom printing and product photography."
