Ricardo, what should I say, you were so amazing, such a friendly and helpful person that made everything work out perfectly! It was so nice to meet you and work with you! For sure when we come back to Portugal we will contact you again!
The assistant Carlos was also very helpful, all the time he would help to comunicate with everybody from the location, he made us feel very comfortable. The equipment was perfect, and we could work in the best conditions!

We are a Photo and Designstudio based in Graz, Austria and rented brandnew Profoto B4 1000AirS equipment and some other Progear from Carapau Productions for a shooting on the beach of Portimão in October 2015. The speed, fairness, professionalism and friendliness of Ricardo Nascimento is almost unattainable. Ricardo was cool, professional and we went away as friends. Next time we will book again 100%. Thumbs up for one of the last pieces of humanity in our crazy and too fast world.
