Marisa Cardoso was born in Figueira da Foz in 1977 and now lives in Lisbon. She graduated in Social Communication but her career's first decade was devoted to her passion for Cinema. Music, her longtime lover, just guided her to an unconditional love for photography. She is now a freelance photographer for 15 years, travels as much as she can and she is still driven by passions.

With a focus on portraiture, food and travel I’m an experienced photographer driven by passion, emotions and storytelling. Creative, iconic and unexpected are always my goals.

I regularly work for Portuguese newsmagazine and frequently work for Forbes, Sábado and Público Newspaper Magazines. Also collaborates with several communication agencies, book editors, cultural initiatives and corporate brands such as Fnac, Nike, Pestana Group, Afuri, Fly London and Jerónimo Martins. In 2018 was a member of the official photographers team at Rock in Rio Lisboa Festival and since 2016 works with Guimarães noc noc festival.

In 2019 I finished a book about Portuguese traditions and gastronomy, something that I love, and it is a domain area that I feel particularly comfortable in. The book is called Confrarias de Portugal.

My photographs integrated the photo exhibitions of the 25th anniversary Paredes de Coura Music Festival and the 20th anniversary of the Super Bock Super Rock Festival.
