About the Author

Olá! My name is Taylor Moore, I am a professional landscape and architectural photographer.

I have spent the last two years traveling throughout the mountainside of the UNESCO World Heritage village of Sintra, Portugal. Within my adventure I had started photographing the mysterious and magical site of Quinta da Regaleira.

I have been a photographer since I was 7 years old.
In July 2014, I opened a photography gallery SintraMagic right across from the Quinta da Regaleira.  In June of 2015 I will have a dream fulfilled, by having an article with my photographs of Quinta da Regaleira in Architectural Digest Italia.

In May of 2015 I decided to do a Kickstarter Campaign which was funded in June by 220 backs from around the world.

“Photography is my muse, my profession, and the thing that will undoubtedly drive me insane someday.

I don’t photograph things. I photograph the way they make me feel. Admittedly, it’s a bit of a strange concept. But it’s honest – and it’s the best way to describe my approach to the craft.

I wrestle with every image I shoot.
I assume perfection is possible.

I have worked for some insanely powerful and boring companies, Getty Images, Electronic Arts, Canadian Tourism, Squaresoft and the Discovery Channel. I have taught over 200 people in photography, digital design, and exotic dancing. I have worked in all extremes, from photographing diamonds deep underground in the Arctic, to chasing ancient shadows in the palaces and quintas of Europe.

I have won awards, and lost awards, but that isn’t what matters.
What matters is finding the light and sharing it.”

This is my first book, but not my last.
