He was one the founders of APAF (Portuguese Association for Photographic Art), formed after the extinction and realignment of "Foto Club 6x6", where he was a member of the executive board.
In the APAF he was the executive secretary for three mandates from 1973 till the beginning of the eighties, when he became permanent contributor to the professional magazines “FotoJornal“ and "Revista Nova Imagem".
He participated in several photography art exhibitions and was co-author of one of the first non commercial slideshows produced in Portugal, with premiere in Palácio Foz in 1979.
In 2002 went back to this activity, after having abandoned the photography for over twenty years, with the re-discovery of the magic of the photographic lab... initially through the computer assisted image manipulation and, more recently, using the "old" traditional analog processes.
