‘’I do not sell images. I sell moments’’
“Capturing moments requires a combination of factors. You must have a very good eye, experience, the necessary equipment and the love for what you do”.
Thiago da Cunha was born in Luanda, Angola, in 1968. He lived in Lisbon, Portugal, as well as in Lima, Peru. He grew up in the Dominican Republic and has been a professional photographer for over 18 years. After a short stay in Freeport, Bahamas, where he began shooting destination weddings, he decided to move back to the Dominican Republic to open his own business. Thiago is descended of Portuguese explorer Dom Tristao da Cunha, (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Trist%C3%A3o_da_Cunha) who discovered the remotest island, Tristan da Cunha.
Thiago is fluent in English, Spanish, Italian and Portuguese, witch is ideal for destination weddings.
"Being a wedding photographer in the Dominican Republic is great! I enjoy the many locations the country offers. We have great mountains, deserts, beaches and city locations and all in just an hour apart".

Thiago created the only live radio show for photographers in the Dominican Republic called ‘’Imágenes en la Radio’’ (Images in the Radio). The radio show was about the fusion of photography, the internet and radio. Enthusiasts could call, tweet or chat from all over the globe during this one hour radio show. Now, almost 3 years later, he still does live radio for photography lovers every Monday at Uepa Radio Show http://www.lanota957fm.com/
