About - Doutel Photography


João Doutel (alias Arnath) is a global photographer now based on Porto, Portugal.

Inspired by his father's passion about photography, his growing interest in photography has started at tender age. With the arrival of the digital era and the info-democratic age of the internet this interest has grown more than a hobbie  and it was when João has enrolled in a self-taught formation. Since 2004 that he has been using his Flickr account as a mean to show his work.

Later in 2012 he has accomplished a Digital Photography Course in IPF - Portuguese Institute of Photography - in Porto, Portugal.

Between 2014 and 2015 João and her partner accomplished the project "Os Peripatéticos", a round the world trip followed by an extended photographic work having visited 15 different countries in 10 months.
