My name is Adriano Leite, Brazilian-Australian “citizen of the world” based in Sydney, which I proudly call home. Photography was always a passion of mine but I never pursued it until one of those “-OMG, are you crazy?” decisions (quit a good, stable and secure job to travel the world and deep-dive into photography). I let the creative juices flow for once, and decided that photography is an inherent part of my life. And here I am.
Having brought balance to my life between following my passion and refocusing my career in IT enabled me to open my photography business and, as life would have it, things are looking promising with my work being sold/licensed world-wide. How could I imagine that a couple of years ago! But believing in a dream is what drives us, and I never thought it would be so rewarding!
Since I believe that knowledge is only valuable when shared, I also teach photography classes and organise photography walks and workshops around Sydney on a regular basis. This gives me the opportunity to meet people and look at our beautiful city from different angles.
And as with everything in life, I’m fully conscious that photography is and will always be an ever-learning path for me. Whenever the path gets too hard and I think about giving up, I open myself to the universe and let the answer come to me. And so far the answer has been consistent: keep going.
To all the readers, feel free to get in touch, I’d love to hear your questions, comments and constructive feedback!
