João Morgado, 32, was born in Cascais and in 2008 he completed his master’s degree in architecture from the University Institute of Lisbon (ISCTE). In the same year he went to Maastricht (Holland) to study at the studio of the prestigious architect Wiel Arets, where he discovered the passion for architecture photography.
In 2011 he founded the company João Morgado – Photography of Architecture. It was considered, in 2015, one of the ten best photographers of architecture of the world, by the magazine Top Teny, of New York. Already a year before, a photograph of his own, the Pool of the Tides, in Leça da Palmeira – by the architect Álvaro Siza Vieira (architect with whom, of course, he often works) – won the Arcaid Images Architectural Photography award, in the category of “Sense of Space”.
João Morgado continues to work in Portugal, but also in other countries, such as Croatia, Italy, France, Spain, and even Kuwait.
