Diego Verí­ssimo

Porto - 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."
