Gonçalo Barriga


I photograph amazing people!

I became a full time professional photographer in 2010, after working many years in the mining industry as a geologist.
Since then I’ve served a very diverse group of clients, from large companies to individuals, shooting for websites, annual reports, books, magazines, portrait sessions...

Passionate about travel and adventure sports, I have always considered myself an explorer in every sense and this, of course, influences my photography. It is and always will be “work in progress”, as I grow bigger, better and faster!

I like to think of my images as simple, elegant and powerful, with hints of humor and drama. I want them to have a life of their own and to talk to people.

I’m grateful for all I’ve learned so far and always ready for the next big adventure, because I know the only thing between me and my goals is what I put there.
