Pedro Oliveira is a Brazil-born American, Dallas & Orange County-based, multi-award winner still+motion director focusing on documentary storytelling and brand narrative.
Being only 34 and shooting professionally for a little over seven years, Pedro has produced imagery for giants such as Forbes, National Geographic, Vanity Fair, LA Weekly, Volvo, Hyundai, The Guardian, Johns Hopkins University, the musical Hamilton, Der Spiegel, Almarai, Home Instead Senior Care, APS, among many others.
His fast-ascending career has warranted Pedro's nomination to the "Top 10 Photographers of 2020" by PhotoPolitic. Some have referred to Pedro as a "wonder kid" & an "up-and-coming creative." He has been labeled with an equal frequency as a smartass and teller of dad's jokes, to which he agrees and takes more pride than the former.
Ultimately, his humble upbringing by a widowed mother in countryside Brazil, the Latino spices of the Brazilian lands, and the sense of still being a kid trapped in this adult's world are what make Pedro's work so fresh and authentic. Living in Portland for most of his adult life, Pedro has grown to become a kombucha & coffee snob! You can lure "de Oliveira" to work for you with a bowl of peanut M&Ms.
