Hi, My name is Rui Bandeira, I’m based in Oporto, Portugal and I do Concert photography and product photography.
I started as a drummer, I’ve studied at the local music conservatory and played for some years, but somewhere along the line I changed to photography.
I’ve always worked as a freelancer, and as time went by I started to get booked by some of the top bands and festivals in Portugal.
I rarely edit in monochrome, because I think that i’m there to record the concert the most accurately as possible and that includes the colours and the lights.
I Shoot with a Canon 5DMkIV and Canon 5DMkII and mostly with Canon ef 70-200mm f2 8 l usm is ii and the Canon EF 17-40mm f/4.0L USM
