Taís Toti

Where are you from?  I was born and raised in Belo Horizonte and I’m currently living in São Paulo, Brazil.

How long have you been taking photos?  I started in college, when I got an internship in the school’s photo lab. After that I stopped for a few years because I didn’t have the money to buy an SLR camera and I thought you had to have a professional expensive camera to take good photos. Four years ago I realized that made no sense, bought some new batteries for my family’s Olympus Stylus Epic and started taking pictures of almost everything.

Do you have a favourite camera?  Yes. The Olympus mju II/Stylus Epic. I am very fond of the Pentax K-1000 as well.

Favourite movie?  I like almost all teen/high school movies, especially John Hughes flicks, Clueless and 10 Things I Hate About You.

What did you want to be when you were a kid?  I wanted to be a poet. I used to make these little DIY books with poems about the flowers we had in our building’s garden. I even won a poetry contest in school when I was 11.
