Claudio A. Parada Nunes – CAPN
Architectural Photographer


Claudio’s passion for architecture and spaces began from early age, when his parents introduced him to the building blocks of life: LEGO!

Intrigued by the endless possibilities, he would spend hours thinking of ways how to improve his mini Lego city. In 2005 he applied for a masters in Architecture at Lisbon’s Faculty of Architecture, followed by a year in Rome where he developed a taste for aperitivo.
In 2012 he moved to Budapest to work as an architect for one of the biggest healthcare industries worldwide. As the years went by, he found himself more and more trapped behind a screen, drafting and designing buildings until his eyes would pop out of his head.

Then one day, his world changed! He was introduced to the next level of architecture, where shapes and shadows were captured through a set of various lenses.
From 2017 he decided to dedicate himself to a career in architectural photography, and since then life has been a fulfilling game.

He now spends his time between Portugal and Iceland, photographing the stories of buildings and spaces.


“Given the fact that I have studied architecture, I find myself in a favourable position to better understand the building and the concept that the architect created. Exploring a building is like going into the architect’s mind; you imagine how a specific place would look like with a given light, so you wait for that moment and contemplate it”.
