Teresa Freitas was born in 1990 in bright and sunny Lisbon, where she still lives. She graduated from Lisbon University’s Faculty of Fine Arts with a degree in Multimedia Art, followed by a Masters in Design and New Media.
Teresa had taken conceptual photography classes while at art school, but mainly focused on black and white film. Through the immediacy of Instagram, she felt freer to experiment with the medium, taking her work in new and interesting directions. As she followed her inspiration, her work developed to be something far from the grey scale. She established her signature style of bright yet calming hues, and major brands began to seek her out for collaborations.
Teresa aims to continue to be a full-time photographer at the age of 86.
