Carlos "Grury" Santos

Creative Director

Helsinki, Finland
I'm a creative director at a 3d studio with a very old passion for photography. Portuguese born, living now in Helsinki, Finland.
I moved to London in the early 90's where I spend a lot of time photographing some of the interesting aspects of the street and more underground cultures.
Around 1999 I completly stoped photographing and for more than 10 years I didnt touch a camera, until some 3 years ago when I got my first DSLR and slowly the old passion been growing on me again. With my current lifestyle I'm trying to get into nature and landscape, someting I had never done before.
