SEVENSEAS Marine Conservation & Travel Issue 17, October 2016 - Page 23

Biologist, Master of Science in Fishery Biology and Nature Photographer. It all started in 2011 when I traveled to South Africa for the first time and found a new way to contemplate the beauty of nature: through lenses. I had just graduated biologist and since then I started studying photography. Photography is one of the best tools for Conservation and as a Nature Photographer, I’m glad to take this responsibility. Now my mission is to share great moments and the treasures of nature with people. My images have been used for scientific purposes, newspapers, magazines and the documentary The Great White Shark Legend (Directed by Ricardo Lacombe, 2014), filmed in False Bay, South Africa.

For more on Tiago:

"Off the coast of Sao Paulo, Brazil, near Queimada Grande Island. The black-browed albatross (Thalassarche melanophris) is more common to see here and I also saw the southern giant petrel (Macronectes giganteus)."
