When I started my career as a photographer in 1992, I’d never taken the traditional path of being an assistant to an established photographer, but I’d been living and breathing photography for many years. While I entered this creative field from an editorial perspective, my first advertising campaign in 2003 took my work a step forward. The success of this and other subsequent campaigns led me to create a high-end photography studio, with excellent professionals and equipment, as well as its own post-production team.And so was born, in 2006, Nuno Correia Photography - a studio whose strong initial focus was Tabletop Photography but eventually grew to encompass most areas of photography, such as people and landscape. Nowadays, we are called upon to work on projects with very different photographic needs, which keeps the process challenging, fresh and rewarding.As a lifetime lover of the visual arts, taking the leap to video was a natural next step. In 2013 I opened Slow Studio, a high-end film production company specialised in Tabletop and built on the same principles of “excellence” as the photography studio. With its top quality equipment - high-speed cameras, Cinebot (Bolt), Spinner and a editing/grading suite - and professionals, Slow Studio has become an epicentre for creative and innovative campaigns, where we’ve had the luck of working with some of the best creatives and brands in the industry. Besides, since our early days we established a strong relationship with MPC London, which has provided us with the best Color Grading process we could ever hope for, with a remote connection to London without ever leaving our offline suit in Lisbon!
smooth is fast.slow is smooth.
A big challenge of working with a very specialised and high-end workflow was that we never had the time to help our clients with their less high-end campaigns! With this in mind, together with two of my former producers and friends, we created Real Simple Studios - a production company aimed at swifter projects with simpler needs, both in video and photography, where I act as Creative Supervisor. Over countless campaigns, Real Simple has become its own powerhouse and has found a special place in its clients’ hearts.Between these three Studios, all placed on top of each other in the same building, we have built 1290m2 of pure creative energy. I am immensely proud of my staff and all the projects we have helped create since 2006, but what really excites us are the ideas and projects which are yet to come!
