Modern explorer. Wanderer on the beauty trail. Forever and incorrigibly in search of adventure…
Margeaux Ferreira is a freelance Landscape and Travel Photographer, Writer and Explorer. Born and raised in Portugal, she currently lives in Austin, TX.
Margeaux’s wanderlust began at a very early age. Born in Corroios, a small medieval village founded in 1369 on the outskirts of Lisbon, her childhood was spent roaming wild and free, and in endless exploration. Most days, she could be found wandering along the riverbank or the countryside, playing in the sea, watching the fisherman bring in their nets and sleeping under the stars. As far back as she can remember, she was fascinated by the stories of the great Portuguese navigators and explorers of old who dared to venture out beyond the edge of the world. Those early history lessons instilled in her a sense that exploration and adventure were not only her birthright, but her future. Her wanderlust has since grown into a burning fire that fuels her life, and the list of places she wants to visit continues to grow with each new adventure.
Margeaux’s interest in photography was born out of her passion for nature and the outdoors. It all began several years ago when she impulsively purchased her first DSLR, a Nikon D90. From the outset, she experienced a penchant for photographing those vast ‘cinemascope’ panoramas and capturing the beauty of the natural world. She is drawn to majestic landscapes, rugged mountain wilderness, glacier-clad peaks, wild coasts and rainforests. Today, photography is an integral part of her life and a natural extension of the impulse to explore the world.
For over 20 years, Margeaux has worked as a marketing professional focused on developing brands, driving demand and managing marketing programs for numerous Fortune 500 and High-Tech companies. Previous employers and clients include such high profile companies as Microsoft, IBM, Dell, Sprint, Panasonic and AT&T.
When she is not working or traveling, she spends much of her time planning her next adventure, primarily to the National Parks at the moment. She has a fondness for jumping out of planes, hanging off cliffs and generally any antic needed to get the shot. Often, the quality of the adventure is measured in direct proportion to the level of grunge and exhaustion sustained by the body.
Drawing on her long career as a marketing expert, Margeaux now hopes to focus on humanitarian, ecological and conservation projects that support the preservation of our planet and all its creatures. If you are interested in working with Margeaux, drop her a note here.
