Gilby Santos

Gilby Santos is a Photographer and writer with a background in advertising who lives in the beautiful Lisbon and does freelance work for clients all over the world.

In 2004 he earned a degree in Advertising and worked for a few advertising agencies as a Graphic Designer but soon realized that the advertising life was not for him and decided to move on to a more artistic career. He relocated to London, UK, and learned the craft of photography he then worked retouching photos for a little while but soon after that he decided to reinvent himself again and went back to school and earned a Master's Degree in Digital Media from Kingston University in London. Even with new skills under his belt he once again went to work for advertising agencies but this time doing everything that was digital related.

In 2013 tired of the advertising scene and in search of new horizons Gilby packed his things and moved to Berlin with the intention to work on his photography and get to know more about the startup scene that is rocking the city. This adventure lasted nearly two years and during this time he worked as a community manager for a few, now failed, startups.

In January of 2015, he decided that he wanted to live in a city with more pleasant weather, so he traded the cold and grey Berlin for an always sunny and warm Lisbon. He now works as a freelance photographer and writer and in his free time, he works on his many Street Photography projects.
