My name is Brian Batista Bettencourt (3B), I'm a Toronto-based documentary photographer. Within the past six year I've graduated from Ryerson University's Journalism school and Algonquin College's Photojournalism program. I'm officially trilingual (English, French & Portuguese).
I'm currently freelancing for a variety of clients including The Toronto Star, The Globe and Mail, Country Music Television, Scotiabank Nuit Blanche, Toronto Fringe, Parts and Labour , North by North East, The Associated Press and the NBA.
My journalistic background has given me an appreciation for creating narratives, I've become obsessed with documenting my life and the world around me. I approach everything I shoot with a single purpose, to document and showcase events and their emotions through a story, whether it be with film or digital. My style is heavily influenced by cinema and music, sprinkled with my weird nostalgic feelings associated with the 1990's.
For any event that I'm working, whether it be a wedding, a concert or NBA game, I'll always bring my alternative style and unique way of looking at the world to my final images.
