Agostinho Mendes was born in 1972 in Lisbon, Portugal. He holds a deep knowledge in computer science area, which was his main occupation until very recently. Despite his long experience with computer stuff, he decided to work exclusively on the photography market.
His fascination for photography began very early, still with a film compact camera in their parents’ house. This passion was mainly driven by other big passion: travel and discover our fascinating world. In fact, it was after his four months trip to India that he realized how photography was important in his life. Already in his hometown, just few weeks after this extraordinary experience, he went to IPF – Portuguese Institute of Photography, one of the most recognized photography schools in the country.
Some of his photographs were published in Portuguese and Brazilian media, and are in several homes and offices as part of private collections.
His work has also been shown in some individual and collective exhibitions under the last few years.
