HUGO SUISSAS

Getting the right shot using perspective

Stacks Image 3142

Lisbon-born art director and photographer Hugo Suissas takes his love for his city (and country) and posts it on his Instagram account.Perspective is Hugo’s friend, the catalyst for his foray into the world of photography. As an art director at an advertising agency, for a long time, he was more involved with organizing photographs than taking them. But when a friend asked for his assistance, Hugo realized that perspective and photography could alter the way he viewed the world.

Getting the right shot interests Hugo more than the quality of the camera is taken with. What he lacks in high-tech equipment, he makes up for in preparation. Hugo painstakingly scouts locations for his photos. Then he photographs the background, trying to glean the perfect angle or perspective. Sometimes, though his camera roll is filled with hundreds of images, he will even commit to coming back the next day until he captures the perfect shot.
