Behind the camera
Self-portrait © Sónia Godinho
My name is Sónia Godinho and I have been
photographing since I can remember ...
I would like to share with you the reason why
I left behind a career with more than 20 years
in a big company: I want to do what
I truly love - making Portraits.
Because a Portrait is not "taken", but made with
whoever is on the other side of the lens.
And it is this communication that enchants me:
seeing the other person reveal itself before my lens.
It is a kind of "super-power": giving others the ability to feel confident with their image.
Because beauty comes from within and from the way we trust ourselves.
