Ricardo Braz is a travel photographer from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, who is 27 years old.
His passion for photography began many years ago, but it wasn't until 2017 that he began to take it seriously when he purchased his first semi-professional camera. Things have progressed to the point that he is now fortunate enough to call it his profession, which brings him to all corners of this vast universe.
During his travels, he has developed a liking for exotic nations and cultures - places that 90% of people would never consider as a good vacation spot. In his travel resume, he can mention 64 countries across five continents, as well as some major adventures such as hiking to the Everest Base Camp in Nepal, watching a volcano erupt from afar in Guatemala, scuba diving with manta rays and sharks in the Maldives, standing on the edge of Turkmenistan's Door to Hell, and photographing the northern lights in Alaska and Iceland.
Ricardo's art has already appeared in National Geographic, British Airways' in-flight cover magazine, Folha de S. Paulo, as well as Condé Nast and The Discovrr social media platforms.
Because he feels that traveling is the best way to grow as a person, his objective as a photographer is to inspire others to go out and explore the unknown, to go outside of their comfort zones, and to become better people.
