About

Nando Machado - Professional Photographer

I discovered my passion for photography in London, where I live today. Coming from a analogue photography and darkroom background, I studied photography in Dublin, Ireland, and Verona, Italy. 

With a background in psychology, my previous work focused on the human condition before I turned to landscapes and travel. 

Although my current portfolio consists of nature and scenery, I am particularly interested in causes such as animal rights, human rights and environmental issues. The project that generated the most exposure related to such causes was a commission for a UK-based animal protection charity, which resulted in the publication of a peer-reviewed paper on Nature Conservation and international exposure in NatGeo (only videos are mine, not the photos), BBC and Guardian in the UK, as well as FMT News in Malaysia and CBC in Canada.

I am open to commissions in the UK and abroad. Please get in touch via info@nandophoto.com .
