André Moecke: “Pro Photographer, Addicted Traveler… With a camera and a life in my hands.”
André Moecke was born and raised in Florianópolis/Brazil and is passionate about arts since he was very young.
Always lived in the creative world: did drawings, was a saxophonist in an orchestra and lived with photography since he was a teenager. Son of an art teacher mom and an engineer father, he saw in Architecture the combination of the art world and the precise engineering, and there he started discovering many new paths. This formation allowed him to have a technical and creative knowledge about colors, light, shadow, and shapes. And that way, when he was still at the university, he started working with freelance photography in international sports events.
After graduation he started his own photography company, mainly working with architecture and interior design, but also with still, portraits, fashion, and lifestyle. He also had the opportunity to work with different photographers as a photo assistant.
His passion for arts goes beyond photography, also working with graphic design and independent short movies production.
The interest for learning about new cultures led him to travel all around the world, visiting many countries in 4 continents. From these trips comes a big part of his inspiration and desire to create, and is also from where comes the willingness to live a simpler, sustainable and healthier life.
In 2017 he moved to Munich/Germany, starting a new chapter with new challenges, discoveries, and learnings. Currently, work as Photographer and Photo Editor for the editorial offices of Joy and Shape Magazines in Germany.
