About Us

João Carlos

Born in New York to Portuguese parents, João is a fashion, advertising and fine art photographer and director working between New York and Lisbon.

Although he expressed an interest in having a “real” camera at the age of five, João’s artistic explorations began with painting and fine arts which later led him to study at Ar.Co Institute of Art and Visual Communication in Lisbon, Portugal. With a strong technical background, he creates wonderful imagery and video with a great variety of styles, as well as clean commercial images and portrait photography revealing the attitudes and feelings of his models. 

One of the highlights so far in his photographic career came in 2010 when he won the prestigious Hasselblad Master award. In 2019 he was nominated for European photographer of the year in two separate categories Portrait and Fashion.

Marisa Fernandes

She discovered her passion for photography in her youth. Photographers like Tim Walker, Kristian Schuller, Giampaolo Sgura & set designer Shona Heath inspire her every day.

Marisa loves the challenge to work with different people and develops new concepts and cooperates with talented and focused stylists, set designers, make-up & hair stylists and high potential models. Her concepts are detailed and give a clear idea to all people involved in a project, this will facilitate the focused and target oriented work for magazines and fashion designers.

She studied at the university FH Dortmund (Germany) “Design Media Communication” where she collected well-founded knowledge and focused completely on photography.
