A few questions to Pedros Fortuna Gomes
How did you start with photography?
My passion for photography comes from my grandfather and from the hours I spent with him in the dark room I was 10 years old, the whole process was fascinating
What is the biggest challenge you’ve had to overcome in your photographic career?
I was preparing to cover a motorcycle race, when I dropped my camera that broke down, and I only had the option to use the old konica with a 50mm from my father and do the whole event. In 2 days I grew more as a photographer than in the previous 3 years.
Who is your favourite artist?
Peter Read Miller, Old School, but in Volleybal my favorit sport Conny Kurth is an inspiration…
