The writer and photographer
My passion for writing and photography started in school days. I've been writing and photographing professionally since back in the eighties. Newspapers, magazines, books. From aviation to zen photography, from technology to nature gazing. I've written for various newspapers - Diário de Notícias, Diário Popular, A Capital, Público, Sete, Blitz, Correio da Manhã, Expresso and many others - and for magazines as Mais, Sábado, DN Magazine, Tempo Livre, Descobrir, Visão, Exame Informática, Única, Bit, Correio da Natureza and others.
I was one of the founders of the most important videogames and photography magazines in Portugal - MegaScore and Fotodigital - and for six years executive editor of an aviation magazine, Sirius. I've written books about Photography and Virtual worlds and I am also writing eBooks these days.
I am, actually a columnist for Manfrotto School of Xcellence, the Australian website Photo Tuts+ and the American professional photographers website Pro Photo Coalition, besides being editor of my own emagazine on photography, FOTOdigital, and the founder of eBooks - The FOTOdigital Library, the best place to find the best photography eBooks in the world.
I lead photo tours and workshops in Portugal, around what I call the Atlantic Realm, a coast line that is, legend says, what remains from Atlantis.
I am available to write - and photograph - for more people. Contact me!
The website and emagazine
FOTOdigital online is a photography website and emagazine founded by writer and photographer Jose Antunes, under the motto "Less Gear, More Fun".
The original name was for a printed photography magazine, in Portuguese, published from 2001 until 2009.
The original website, in Portuguese, run from 2008 until early 2013.
In February 2013 the first issue of FOTOdigital emagazine was launched, completely created in Adobe Lightroom 4, an experiment that lasted for 5 issues.
From the 6th issue on, FOTOdigital moved on to InDesign for a faster and more conventional workflow.
FOTOdigital is a monthly emagazine with work from multiple authors.FOTOdigital also publishes regularly the work from participants in Jose Antunes photo tours and workshops. In that sense it continues the tuition, by making students choose/edit their own images for publication, an important part of the whole photographic process.
