Fashion + Industry


The time between his first fiddling with a camera and his first prize was almost instantaneous. Frederico Martins grew up among his father’s films and machines, but he did not always dream of photography. His path was almost instinctive, leading him into photojournalism and culminating in a career almost exclusively in the world of fashion. The N'Style was his first stage, but today, covers of Vogue, Elle and Maximum fill his portfolio.

His vision in the international campaign of Portuguese Shoes has earned him nominations and awards that complement his career of almost 20 years. Frederico believes in the potential of the city that welcomed him, but he largely trusts in the creativity that seems to be innate to the inhabitants of Porto. The world is his future, but Porto will always be his present.
