Purpose Retreats
Working with Luiz was an absolute pleasure! Through his creative energy and his attentive perception, he is able to really capture all of an experience through his lens. We are amazed at how he portrayed the essence and the feeling of what our retreats are about in his photos and videos. At the retreat, Luiz blended into the atmosphere perfectly without disturbing it in any way. Even camera-shy people at the event told us that with him, they felt comfortable in front of the camera.
We will continue to recommend Luiz to others and would love to work with him again in the future!

Die Zusammenarbeit mit Luiz war ein absolutes Vergnügen! Durch seine kreative Energie und seine aufmerksame Wahrnehmung ist er in der Lage, die Ganzheit einer Erfahrungen durch seine Linse einzufangen. Wir sind erstaunt, wie er die Essenz und das Gefühl dessen, worum es bei unseren Retreats geht, in seinen Fotos und Videos wiedergegeben hat. Bei den Retreats fügte sich Luiz perfekt in die Atmosphäre ein, ohne sie in irgendeiner Weise zu stören. Selbst kamerascheue Teilnehmer*innen des Retreats sagten uns, dass sie sich mit ihm vor der Kamera wohl fühlten.
Wir werden Luiz weiterhin empfehlen und würden auch in Zukunft sehr gerne wieder mit ihm zusammenarbeiten!

We really want to thank Luiz for sharing his skills and sense for creating atmosphere in the photo shoot. We already had several ideas before the shooting and were not yet sure what to focus on. Luiz was able to include all of our wishes and more into the photos and made us feel incredibly comfortbale in front of the camera. How he accompanied us before and after the shooting exceeded our expectations. The post-production was professional, fast and most importantly the results turned out beautiful. Luiz is the ideal photographer if you wish for a natural and authentic process between you and the lens!

Luiz has understood how to capture my work and my messages in the photos for my website. He portrays me very authentically and sympathetically.
He has a good sense of the setting in which he photographs and creatively looks for new ideas and locations. Working with him is very easy because he creates a good and relaxed atmosphere with his calm and approachable manner. I especially liked the fact that he had a conversation before the shoot to get to know each other. The result is just great and it was a lot of fun to get to know each other from a different side!

Luiz hat es verstanden in den Fotos für meine Webseite mein Wirken und meine Botschaften einzufangen. Sehr authentisch und sympathisch stellt er mich dar.
Er hat ein gutes Gespür dafür in welchem Setting er fotografiert und sucht kreativ neue Ideen und locations. Das Arbeiten fällt sehr leicht, weil er durch seine ruhige und zugewandte Art eine gute und entspannte Atmosphäre schafft. Besonders gut hat mir gefallen, dass er vor dem shooting ein Gespräch des gegenseitigen Kennenlernens geführt hat. Das Ergebnis ist einfach klasse und es hat sehr viel Freude gemacht, sich von einer anderen Seite kennenzulernen!

Wir sind super glücklich bin den Fotos die Luiz für unsere Webseite gemacht hat. Er hat die Fähigkeit sehr stimmungsvolle Bilder zu machen die sehr lebendig und lichtdurchflutet sind. Er hat ein gutes Auge für die Komposition der Fotographie, das richtige Umfeld und Setting. Es ist sehr angenehm mit Luiz zu arbeiten, er strahlt eine sehr entspannte, unkomplizierte und fröhliche Art aus, die es sehr einfach macht vor der Kamera zu stehen. Außerdem ist er offen für spontane Experimente, um das Best mögliche Bild einzufangen. Nach dem Shooting hat er alle Bilder sehr schnell bearbeitet und uns in der Form wie wir sie brauchten zur Verfügung gestellt. Jederzeit wieder! Vielen Dank.​​​​​​​

Luiz is a great and relaxed photographer. I had a lot of ideas and he listened to everything very patiently and then added his own ideas which were very helpful.
I felt very comfortable during the shoot and the pictures turned out fantastic. I think Luiz definitely has a good feeling for creating a nice atmosphere in the pictures.
I'm super happy about the collaboration and would love to do more!
I highly recommend him as a photographer!

Luiz ist ein super cooler und entspannter photograph. Ich hatte ganz viele Ideen und Vorstellung und er hat sich sehr geduldig alles angehört und hat dann eigene Ideen noch mit eingebracht die sehr hilfreich waren. Ich habe mich sehr wohl gefühlt während den Shootings und die Bilder sind phantastisch geworden. Ich finde Luiz hat auf jeden Fall ein gutes Gefühl dafür eine schöne Atmosphäre auf den Bildern zu kreieren.
Bin super happy über die Zusammenarbeit gerne mehr!
Kann ihn sehr als photograph empfehlen!

Luiz was travelling through the Sacred Valley on his way to Machu Picchu, when he noticed our pottery school. He was delighted with our work, and soon after asked if he could photograph and film our products and our daily routines. I was a somewhat unsure and suspicious, as I wasn't sure what his intentions were. Later I realized his goodwill and gentleness in wanting to help me. He returned a few days later and we did the photos and videos of my work, and captured every detail in a very special way, with perspectives that resulted in images of my work that I had never seen before. Besides, Luiz was very kind to help me to create a Website page with the photos and video and also teaching one of my sons how to use a computer. As a result of this material I was able to do marketing promotion of my work in Cusco and all around the Sacred Valley, as well as for those who are on their way to Machu Picchu. Thank you very much Luiz! 

Luiz viajaba por el Valle Sagrado de camino a Machu Picchu, cuando se fijó en nuestra escuela de cerámica. Quedó encantado con nuestro trabajo, y poco después preguntó si podía fotografiar y filmar nuestros productos y nuestras rutinas diarias. Estaba un poco inseguro y desconfiado, ya que no estaba seguro de cuáles eran sus intenciones. Más tarde me di cuenta de su bondad y gentileza al querer ayudarme. Volvió unos días después e hicimos las fotos y los vídeos de mi obra, y captó cada detalle de una manera muy especial, con perspectivas que dieron como resultado imágenes de mi obra que nunca había visto antes. Además, Luiz fue muy amable al ayudarme a crear una página web con las fotos y el vídeo y también al enseñar a uno de mis hijos a utilizar el computador. Con este material pude hacer promoción de marketing de mi trabajo en Cusco y en todo el Valle Sagrado, y también para los que están en camino a Machu Picchu. ¡Muchas gracias Luiz!
