Hugo Ribeiro is a young Portuguese photographer who was born in Oliveira de Azeméis in 1996. He currently resides in Santa Maria da Feira, where he studied his entire life. 
It was during his studies that his connection to the visual arts gained strength and began to develop on a larger scale. However, it was as a child that he had his first contact with photography, having carried out experiments in a film development laboratory. 
He decided to take photography more seriously when he began studying at the Portuguese Institute of Photography in Oporto and it was here that he developed his portfolio without ever losing his unique style. He feels more comfortable with documentary photography and fashion. 
In documentary photography we can highlight his taste for portraying traditions and its people, an example of this is the "Arte Xávega" project made in 2020. This project culminated in an exhibition with the support of the Câmara Municipal de Ovar, between June and September 2021.
In 2022, he started working as a photography assistant with the fashion photographer, Pedro Afonso.
Among his clients as a freelance photographer we can highlight: CURA by Michelin star chef, Pedro Pena Bastos. Four Seasons Ritz Hotel, Lisbon. ​​​​​​​
