WE LOVE THAT YOU ARE HERE AND WANT TO LEARN MORE ABOUT US

It all started through our own experience and journey. All dreams can be achieved but sometimes our own dreams feel so immense that we have no idea where to begin. We look up at those who we admire, those who already created something amazing and it's impossible to see the small stepping blocks that hold up success. All journeys entail learning and study, apprenticeship and expertise, and success and failure. This is the story of our journey.

RISE is the story of the people who went out of their way to teach us something they already knew. RISE is the way we failed over and over again, and then got up to succeed. RISE is the joining of all the things that seem too little but are extremely important. RISE is the direction in which you can point your career into something bigger than yourself. RISE is the place for you!

We want to see you grow to elevate your creative business. When you RISE we all RISE.

Photography is that thing that drives me crazy, that moves me. It is my way of expression and my way of being. Through photography I found myself. I love getting inspired by editorial fashion, design, architecture and art (I believe museums are the most romantic places given the sense of belonging they offer). Through photography I found how much I adore teaching others what I have learned through my experience. I feel like when I share what I know I give a bigger meaning to what I am doing. I dropped out of college to follow a calling for photography. My growth has been about harnessing self-discipline and self-improvement. I arrived at the pinnacle of this when I began to teach others my own acquired knowledge. I remember when I first started I felt I couldn’t ask the best for help, I never want this to be the case for others. Teaching and showing others the skills, and even the habits, I have acquired throughout my growth is what has added most meaning to this whole path.

Journalist

I’ve always loved work that reflects feelings. I love reading, looking, listening and discovering something, anything, that incites an emotion in me. The overwhelming pleasure of knowing that I’ve stumbled upon something that was created through passion, vision and creativity that then transcends the same creator, is a spiritual experience for me. I met Camila when we were just teenage girls with so so many dreams. We have lived in different cities and have experienced a set of differing jobs but at some point it just felt right to unite in all that we had learned to do something together.Through the years I’ve become aware I can do incredible things with the words I put together. However, I feel my work has been in some way a testament to the Platonic theory that art and beauty can be a result of the divine and not of the mortal human’s truth. I sometimes read things I have written and can’t believe it was me who came up with it. Pretty crazy but true! Rise is the place for that to happen. The reality of a community that is built on growth and empowerment through passion, learning and an overall need for creation buries with hope every day. I am convinced of the amazing and incredible work that can be put out in the world by creatives who truly believe in themselves and understand that their work has the power to be bigger than themselves.

Designer

Since I can remember, design has always caught my eye as an aesthetic line that builds beauty and explains the complexity of what surrounds me. In it, I found a place where I could explore my creativity, unfold diverse perspectives and expand my understanding of the material and abstract world. During my first years of college I was able to hone my passion for design to focus mainly on graphic design and editorial design. I had the opportunity to attend the London College of Fashion and learn from some of the most insightful and intuitive people I have ever met. I say their talent was insightful and intuitive because I’ve come to learn that in design being instinctive with what you create is what takes something from good to amazing. Over time, as I began doing jobs I learned that good design means good business. In a project, each element of design can be accompanied by a well-thought strategy to achieve the results your client is looking for in any given product. I love being able to share the creative tools I have developed over the years with others. There is nothing more satisfying than becoming part of a project I truly believe in. Realizing that clients are really happy with what a brand makes them feel through its aesthetic is mesmerizing to me. Today, I feel fortunate to be working with Camila and Renata, who aside from being my lifelong friends, share my passions of life. We complement each other incredibly which has made our goals attainable and our dreams a reality. I am in love of being part of this beautiful project called Rise.

// TO BECOME YOUR //

GREATEST SELF

// A MESSAGE OF GROWTH //

A camera in my hands always gave me the feeling of liberty, of power, of being able to express myself as I wanted to be perceived. First taking photographs of my friends and family, I found delight in their gratitude towards me for capturing a moment. Then, two years ago I shot my first wedding. A hopeless lover and believer of love, I’ve always been obsessed with people falling in love, the idea of getting married, of forever, of a soul mate and so on. I felt so close to all I looked up to, to what I wanted, what I dreamed of, that innately I kept going. The thrill shook me to my core and pulled me in.

At the beginning I was hungry for the epic photo, doing the work but not thinking about the roots of my intentions. Booking job after job, it became clear to me that it was easy for my growth to become stagnant. Doing it for the wrong reasons, sooner or later would have repercussions on my newfound success. Pausing myself to reflect on why what I was portraying was remarkable, I understood I had to create a fundamental relationship with who I was photographing to comprehend the extraordinary. With introspection came what I always thought unimaginable; a way of telling touching stories, a way of leaving an appreciated legacy, and a form of transcending my work into a passion.
