Fernando Lessa’s (1984, Brazilian) is an Outdoor Storyteller. With a degree in Biology and a Masters in Photography, Fernando has collaborated with many clients in the search for unique images, and more recently as a writer, publishing two articles in the National Geographic Brazil website.

Fernando has been a certified diver since 2004 and began his career as a photographic assistant in 2007, before becoming a full-time outdoor photographer in 2013.

With much experience in the field, Fernando has worked in a variety of areas, from the untouched Amazon forest to the unique Brazilian Savannah, through to the Tropical Rainforest and the Atlantic Ocean. A highlight was the “Juruena Expedition“ - 27 days in a rafting boat exploring the untouched Juruena River and its collaboration with The Nature Conservancy and the Brazilian National Museum in producing a Fish Identification Guidebook for the mountains of Rio de Janeiro.
