The first time I fell in love with Pedro Matos’ works was when I saw his Back To Earth editorial. The images were very edgy and the concept was futuristic enough to suit my liking. After looking at his other photos, it became clear that I have to feature this amazing photographer on Swide. Ladies and Gentlemen, today I present you Pedro Matos.
M: Hello Pedro, it’s always an honor to feature a fashion photographer I admire and thank you so much for taking some time to answer my questions. So Pedro, how did you get into fashion photography? Were you under and formal training before?
P: Ever since I remember, painting, photography and cinema were my greatest passions. Also, I was always interested in people, feelings and emotions. Fashion became the "medium" to explore all the things that fascinated me the most. I started my career as a photographer at the age of sixteen, shooting a theater play. When I was seventeen I started to attend the prestigious ARCO School in Lisbon, where I studied photography for four years. While studying at ARCO, I collaborated as a photographer in publicity campaigns and catalogs. Later, I also shot many other events.
