About Mário Jorge

Born in Oporto, Portugal in 1958.

I got into the photography at a considerable young age.Initially just to fiddle with the camera, trying to figure out how all the pieces worked together, it soon became a passion for capturing the moment with all its details and glory. Unfortunately, due to profissional reasons I had to put my passion on hold for more than 25 years. Glad to say that in 2008 I was finally able to get back to photography...Having been inactive for 25 years I jumped over the digital revolution and the Photoshop age. Despite using a digital camera, try to keep the original shot mostly untouched, except for some minor adjustments. I prefer to leave the pictures in its original form

Photography also allows me to travel a lot on a quest to capture and eternalise moments of our human essence, living conditions and especially those small, joyful details.
Over the years, I have gathered an extensive photo collection on the most diverse themes and projects of photojournalism. I decided to bring a project to life by publishing my images on this website.

Suffice to say that travelling is also one of my passions.

I hope you enjoy my work as much as I have fun doing it.
