João Salamonde, João Salamonde, Rio de Janeiro, Brasil

Born in Rio de Janeiro, in 1979, João began studying photography early, at age 20, when he took his first course. His first job was in the streets of Rio, working in small and large events - like the carioca Carnival - for agencies, magazines and newspapers. Photojournalism was the “photographic style” chosen to represent his work in the market.

Nowadays, his main work is based on weddings and e-sessions. In addition to the photographs of social and corporate events, João Salamonde gives private lessons in photography, Lightroom (a program used for storage, editing and processing photos for professionals) and workflow.


Photographer experienced, loving life and specialist in wedding reportage, which aims to document love, happiness and joy.
He likes to meet people from diverse backgrounds in French, German or English. He loves to travel and the frequent change of scenery.
He acquired his training in Germany and became a member of the chamber of trade Munich subsequently licensed in training of apprentices.
His approach is based on the maxim of the philosopher Martin Buber: "All real living is meeting" and "All that is true, is simple."
Besides photography that he loves passionately since childhood, he goes to cinema, theater and concerts. As soon as he gets the chance
he never misses an exhibition of paintings or photographs.
Philosophy, theology, esotericism and psychology deeply interested, he loves also food and cooking, detective stories and garage sales.
His daughter and grand-son live in Berlin.
He is a proud member of the New York Institute of Photography


Luis Cano, Luis Cano Fotografo, Miami, Florida

I am a Colombian photographer based in Miami, FL. I have been working for six years in the corporate, products, fashion photo, among others. Fortunately, I have had the opportunity to do what I love the most in this world: Shooting!!! Particularly, the challenges in wedding photography lead me to give my best for creating unique and unrepeatable moments.  I am passionate for audio-visual means with a creative concept.

Through these years, I become convinced that formal training, courses, workshops, and conferences have not given me as much as sharing ideas, viewpoints and experiences with others. Contact with people open our eyes and help us to understand beyond what is written.

I am also happy of accepting every challenge and opportunity that come every day because it helps me to grow and being a better professional.
