Who is Michael Campos Viola?
My name is Michael Campos Viola. I was born in 1980 in Oldenburg, Germany. As a child I cannot remember what my dream job was. I remember I always liked the nature, the forest and the trees.
Photography came only later into my life. I was already a young adult and was somehow completely lost. My first shots were taken in Oldenburg during a period of lots of experimentation.
Until recently almost everything that I knew about photography and cameras was self-taught. I was lucky enough to have met some very good photographers who were kind enough to share their know-how with me. Recently I decided to enroll at the POP School in Munich, Germany. This decision helped me to focus my energy and creativity with the goal of pursuing a photography education. Since then I am on my way to become a better photographer.
