Tânia’s photography portfolio is distinct for its very diverse nature: underwater, surf, yoga, culture, entertainment, aerial, candid and lifestyle. It is always the natural, spontaneous moments of people and places that inspire her. She particularly loves it when a photo records a moment laced with traditions, culture and history as she believes these are the pictures that speak for themselves.
She often follows people on different activities, setting off to faraway seas to capture the way life unfolds around these places, during these times she also mastered skills such as scuba diving, helping her uncover an entirely new eco system to photograph. With the help of underwater gear for both for herself and her Nikon camera, she is able to capture amazing underwater creatures as well as everlasting moments.
Surf photos are not easy to conquer; knowing the motion of the waves and being able to read them is necessary to capture surfers in their element. Tânia, sitting on a small rubber boat, needs to be in the right place at the right time to get a perfect angle. She simply used a Nikon D7100 with the AF-S DX NIKKOR 18-105mm f/3.5-5.6G ED VR, to capture this image dubbed ‘Paradise Surf’, and noted the importance of time spent cultivating your skill over your gear in hand. With a lot of skill and a bit of luck, she succeeded, and this has become her favourite image.
