Joao Lamancha Valente


Joao was born November 29th in Torrao (Alcacer do Sal) Portugal and has lived in Lisbon from the age of two.


He graduated in Electronic and Telecommunications engineering in 1984.


His professional career started in 1978 in several areas, with special mention to Aeronautical Engineering, Naval Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering and Risk Management and Project Manager in Insurance Industry. Presently Joao is working in the Financial Sector (Banking) as a Real Estate and Property Director.


Joao boasts traits of honesty, sincerity and intuition. He is humorous, independent and very communicative. Being a very optimistic and idealistic person enables him to be very determined and has established very demanding goals for his entrepreneurship.


Photography and music are his favorite hobbies. JoLaVal (Joao Lamancha Valente) is a self taught man in the field of music and photography and therefore can be consider a "Self Made Man".


After receiving his very first camera as a Christmas Gift at the age of twelve he developed a passion for photography. He has accumulated thousands of negatives, slides and more recently hard drives full of images in digital format. At his small office you can find lots of photography books and magazines.


His frequent business and leisure trips have led him to dedicate more time to Travel and Landscape Photography. However, the photography of the human body, (portrait, and artistic nude and street life) has become one of his most fascinating.


Most recently he has dedicated himself to projects of documentary photography, photojournalism, picture stories and conceptual photography. I look forward to seeing some of his work published in these areas.
