Leica interviews Caesar Lima

Caesar Lima is an award-winning fashion and beauty photographer/director with a passion for technology, street photography, ‘futebol’ and urban toys. Born in São Paulo, Brazil and with a Bachelor of Arts degree in advertising, Caesar Lima always had the passion and drive to go against the creative grain. Caesar welcomes and embraces technology as an endless tool to express himself creatively. Caesar has received multiple accolades and awards including the 2015 International Color Awards, 2014 Rangefinder The Shot Award, 2014-13-12-11 IPA Awards, 2013 and 2012 One Eyeland Awards, 2013 and 2012 PX3 in Paris, 2011 Archive 200 Best, and 2009 Addy Award to name a few in recent years.

 Q: How would you describe your photography?

A: I shoot stylized fashion and beauty. I started my career as a product photographer and I’ve always spent a lot of time on lighting and prepping the shot. I love to shoot in studio starting from total darkness; it’s like a black canvas and then paint with light, creating shapes and moods.

Street Portraits from Dubai to Hong Kong series

Street Portraits from Dubai to Hong Kong with a Leica Q by Caesar Lima 5 countries, 11 cities, 21 days, one camera and only one lens, that was my challenge. I had a Leica Q and 2 batteries 24/7 everywhere all the time. From the streets of modern Dubai and Singapore to the charismatic and overwhelming India, Sri Lanka, Malaysia and Hong Kong.I met genuine people who allowed me to photograph them and most of the time with a smile. I tried to portray what they do and how they live, their contradictions and their similarities The Leica Q exceded in every way, shooting on busy streets, hundreds of people. Everywhere the camera was always on since photo opportunities don’t last long and require instant reaction.I love the Q because I can shoot using only one hand if needed +/- button is accessible next to my thumb and the loop grip keeps the camera very secure in my hand. The camera is very responsive, quick focus and has a super reliable performance. The images are amazing… I’m very impressed. more images @ www.puffybrain.com

Dpreview Interview with Caesar Lima


Commercial portraitist and product photographer Caesar Lima is absolutely fascinated by imaging technologies. His earnest enthusiasm for photography and the business side of the market have helped the trendsetter stay one step ahead of his peers despite a difficult economy. An admitted tech addict, Lima was quick to adapt to emerging digital trends early on, which helped his studio rise over the last two decades to the forefront of conceptual advertising.

 With clients like T-Mobile, Sony Pictures, Pioneer Electronics, Reebok, Walt Disney and many more, he has been named as one of the top product and advertising photographers in the world, and his high gloss commercial and portrait photography has won a number of awards over the years. Based in Los Angeles, his studio portfolio is fun and unique, and yet obsessively composed; a stylish collection of vibrant color schemes, minimalist graphic design, meticulous lighting and gorgeous women. More recently, however, Lima has continued to push himself outside of his comfort zone by embracing street photography through his year-long Project 365 series of images taken with several new camera systems like the Sony a7 II and the Leica Q.

 When he's not shooting, Lima is a PR machine. He's active daily on a variety of social media outlets to keep his network of clients and fans updated on his work, and regularly kept a blog long before social media's prominence. Despite his successes as a commercial photographer, he also submits his work compulsively to magazines, websites and contests, noting that it's a goal for him as a photographer to win at least one award for his images each year.

 Find out more about his work and tech interests, including his own dedicated Macintosh museum, by clicking through the slideshow and accompanying Q+A. To find out more about Lima's work, visit www.caesarlima.com. Follow him on Behance, Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, Google+, Twitter and 500px. more+
