Photographer in Buenos Aires - Henderson Moret
Let me introduce myself in one paragraph! I was born in Brazil, São Paulo, and at age 37 I decided to change my life. I’d been working with video and photography, and also in my family’s business, and I wasn’t happy with the direction my life was taking—I was doing a bit of everything and at the same time nothing. And I was feeling out of focus. I decided to get out of my comfort zone and focus on the art form that touches me the most: photography. At around this time, I travelled to Buenos Aires and got to know the city. I fell in love with it and decided to sell the car, the sofa, the fridge, and move here! The rest is history. I think I've found my place in the world. Every time I'm chosen to record your trip, my story is confirmed and renewed! I have no doubt it was the best life decision I made.
In addition to taking photos, part of what I do is show Buenos Aires to visitors—exploring a city with one of its residents means seeing it from a completely different perspective. I know the city well and love taking clients to visit hidden gems. I’ve been here for eight years and every day I find I’m more enchanted with the city.
I’d like to invite you to have a look at some of the pictures I’ve taken of tourists in Buenos Aires.
These photos have something in common: the people in them are not posing and there is a certain lightness to the images. I am present in the moment, not only taking pictures, but talking, playing, listening, and relating my experiences in the city. Capturing clients in this way is what I’m after. I have nothing against a posed photo, I suggest several poses and places and I think photos like this look beautiful too. I think the exchange of energy between the person being photographed and the photographer is very important; my goal is for you to be so comfortable that you forget about my presence, even if only for a few seconds. These moments are very valuable to me as a photographer.
In short, what I do is a mixture of photo-shoot and tourism. You’ll have the opportunity to enjoy this beautiful city, while leaving the pictures to me . . . or not! You are of course welcome to bring your cell phone along (nothing against selfies and personal records).
On Instagram, I post almost every day and it serves as an emotional diary of the city, in addition to a space to show my work.
Thanks for visiting!
