Hello, my name is Rui Esteves and I’m an amateur photographer from Lisbon, Portugal.

The year I turned 31 I bought a camera with the intention of making images for the first time. Up until then, photography was just the means of preserving my memories. This came at a time that I was searching for a creative outlet to fill in a gap in my life. I was immediately hooked to photography.

It took years to find my place in photography. In a way I’m still looking for it.
