Joel Santos

Joel Santos was born in 1978 in Lisbon, Portugal. He holds an honours degree in Economics and a master‘s degree in Economics and Management of Science and Technology but has dedicated the last nine years to his greatest passion: photography.

His photographs and writings are frequently published by photography, travel and corporate magazines all over the world, and have featured on more than 30 covers and in hundreds of articles. His work has also been shown in several individual and collective exhibitions in Portugal, Poland and East Timor, among other countries.

He is the author of the best-seller ‘Fotografia: Luz, Exposição, Composição, Equipamento e Dicas para Fotografar em Portugal’ (Photography: Light, Exposure, Composition, Equipment and Tips for Taking Photographs in Portugal), the book ‘Fotografia Digital com Adobe Photoshop Lightroom’ (Digital Photography with Adobe Photoshop Lightroom), the book ‘India - The Color of Contrast’ and 'FOTOpad' (a photography field guide and notebook). From 2007 until 2010 Joel was Editor-in-Chief of the Portuguese magazine ‘O Mundo da Fotografia Digital'.

He has won several national and international photography awards for his work, including the First Prize (2006) and an Honourable Mention (2007) in the Nature category of Prémio Fotojornalismo Visão/BES (World Press Photo standards and jury), and Wild Places (Nature/Color, 2007), FIAP Silver Medal (Nature/Color, 2009) and Best Portuguese (Nature/Color, 2009) in the Algarve Photo Salon (sponsored by The International Federation of photographic Art – FIAP – and the Photographic Society of America – PSA).

His photographic work and published books are frequently featured on the main Portuguese TV channels (RTP, SIC and TVI), where he has been interviewed many times since 2009. With the travel agency Papa-Léguas, Joel currently leads trips and photography workshops in Portugal and all over the world, combining his vast experience as a traveller with his love of communicating and teaching. He is represented by Aurora Photos and some of his work is also distributed by Corbis and Getty Images.
