Conversations with Vitor Souza Pinheiro da Silva

Today we’d like to introduce you to Vitor Souza Pinheiro da Silva.

Hi Vitor, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
I am a photographer and beginner videographer. Photography has always been a part of my life, I would take pictures with friends, family, etc… However, I had never done it seriously until around three years ago. That was around the time when I had first started my photography account on Instagram, I started posting photos that I had taken with my phone, and improved a lot as time went by. As you may know, photography and videography are part of the same family, so I naturally started getting into videography. That was around the time I was very confused about college majors and stuff like that, I had switched majors three times in one year. It was then that I had the idea of going to a film school, which I have recently just started. So, it may not seem like a lot, but just in these three years, I have improved a lot in doing what I love and I have learned many things that will help me in the future as well. My goal in life is to be able to do what I love for a living and be happy. I have a dream of traveling the world and learning new cultures while living off of photography. I am not sure how far I am from that dream, but I know that I will achieve at one point.

Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
I think nobody goes through a smooth road when following their dreams and chasing what they want. It has not been a smooth road for me, at least. I’ve had many setbacks and had to make many hard decisions. But I also have the support of my family and friends, which to me, is very important and helps a lot. I know the road ahead is definitely not a smooth one, but I am willing to do anything to be able to make my dreams and goals become reality.

Can you tell our readers more about what you do and what you think sets you apart from others?
I am a photographer, beginner videographer, and a film student. I don’t necessarily specialize in a specific branch of photography because I don’t want to limit myself to only one area. I do a bit of everything and I believe that sets me apart from many other people who are in the same field as me. I am very proud of my photography page on Instagram, even though I do not have thousands of followers, I have put a lot of effort in it and I like how it is possible to see how much I have improved since I first started taking photography seriously.

Can you talk to us about how you think about risk?
I believe that taking risks is the only way you will find success in your life. If you do not take risks and play safe all the time, I do not think you will have as many opportunities presented to you. I do consider myself a risk-taker and I think that moving into adulthood and with all the responsibilities that come with growing up, I will be more and more likely to take risks, which is something I am okay with, I am okay with taking risks. I live by the following phrase: “I would rather regret something that I did than regret something that I did not do.
