Hi. My name is Nuno Palha and welcome to my bio page.
I've been passionate about photography since I was a child. I have fond memories of going on photo weekends with my parents, capturing street photography and exploring the world through the lens of my tiny film camera.
My love for photography deepened during my five-year trip around the world. I had the privilege of living in deep forest communities in Ireland, spending two years as a monk in Sweden, doing volunteer work in Venezuela, and working in the USA. These experiences molded me in unique ways and shaped my perspective as a photographer.
In 2003, while in India, I made the decision to pursue photography professionally. I returned to Portugal and studied Photojournalism, which laid the foundation for my future career. I started shooting weddings in 2005 and founded my own studio in 2010.
Throughout my career, I've had the opportunity to work with a variety of clients and brands, including LVMH, Kenzo, Megaclima, Novartis, CM Sintra, and CM Mafra. My work has been published in magazines such as Cristina, Zoom Fotografia, Parq, and Noticias Magazine, and I've been featured as a guest on TVI.
I´ve also been fortunate to work in France, UK, Greece, Italy, India, Dubai, Caribbean, Madeira Islands and Romania.
Recently, I've embarked on a new creative journey by exploring the art of film making. The process of bringing a story to life through motion pictures has been an exciting and fulfilling experience for me.
With each new project, whether it's photography or film, I approach it with a mindset of continuous learning and growth. I am dedicated to constantly evolving as an artist and pushing my boundaries to create high-quality work that not only meets but exceeds my clients' expectations.
NP Studios is a versatile space used for portrait and product photography, small video productions, catalogue shoots, and client meetings. It serves as the central location for all of my creative projects, and is the brand behind my corporate work.
Wedding photojournalism is my oldest passion. The raw emotion, dynamic energy, diverse personalities, humor, and unexpected surprises make each wedding a true feast for the eyes and a creative playground for the observant photographer.
Bold Couples is a photography project dedicated to capturing the essence of couples and families. It is not only about taking great photos but creating unforgettable experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. Our goal is to celebrate the joy of life as a family, and our approach is to capture candid and authentic moments that reflect the unique personality and style of each family.
Portraiture has always been a profound passion of mine. I am fascinated by the eyes, expressions, and the endless possibilities of human emotions. With this project, I aim to delve deeper into the art of portraiture, making the studio a space where people can come, have an enjoyable experience, and leave with stunning photos that capture their best selves. My ultimate goal is to create portraits that touch the lives of many.
