A powerful story can change everything… Even you!

Stories move people; it is part of our nature; it is what makes us human after all. Our minds are constantly looking for connections to others and their stories. Stories worth seeing and worth hearing are always kept close, in our hearts. Their messages can inspire us to overcome our biggest challenges, to experiment with something new, and guide us to a better version of ourselves.

I focus on harnessing that power. The enormous power of human emotion to drive action. Massive, determined, and consequent action!

And nothing creates more human emotion, than raw and unprocessed engaging stories. I seek meaning and emotion into everything I do. t’s the way I see the world, how I live my life, and how I create my films. My mission is to help you to add richness and emotional detail to your story, so that your message can reach and influence the people that matter most to you.

Video content that makes the viewer want to go there, to stay at that hotel, to eat at that restaurant, and to visit that winery. I want to be there, I want to meet that person, I want to try that wine, I want to hear that story, I want to stay in that room….This!!!! This is the human emotion that I seek to engage in my work, my videos.

I am blessed to be living my dream of capturing stories worth telling and travel around the world for destination campaigns while meeting other amazing humans and get to immortalize their stories with my camera.

As a content creator and especially as a filmmaker, I specialize in Portugal and everything that makes it a world class travel destination. I have had the chance to travel all over Portugal. I have enjoyed fancy hotels and cozy guesthouses, fine dining restaurants and at mom-and-pop eateries, world class vineyards and friend own produce…All in the name of giving my audience and my clients that unique sense of place, which then created the desire to GO THERE!

All my content is very raw, unprocessed, and true to the nature of the location which I am working with. I don’t have a big team around or carry a truck load of equipment…Its just me, my cameras and good, creative storytelling…That is it!

Recap of latest work


"Our relationship with Nelson Carvalheiro can't simply be summarized as "work", "services" or even "partnership". Nelson is a person that shares our way of thinking as if the projects, brand and even the business was his own, and that makes all the difference when it comes to communication. His knowledge of the market, his experience and network, make Nelson a fundamental element for APTECE's activities."
José Borralho, President of APTECE

Nelson was able to give me access to the soul of what I wanted to accomplish. Every outing he planned gave me goosebumps and so much inspiration. Obrigado Nelson!”
Jeremiah Duarte Bills, Founder of

Alice Barcellos, Content Manager at
"Nelson Carvalheiro is one of Portuguese Gastronomy greatest ambassadors. This was the reason why we wanted to work with him since WINTP - Wine Tourism in Portugal, started its business, where Nelson delivered valuable suggestions and insights. Being one of the best Food and Wine Bloggers in the world, he inspires those who are interested in Portugal with his authentic and genuine style, always narrated in an independent fashion and communicational accuracy."
Paulo SottoMayor and Silvia Ferreira, Founders of Wine Tourism in Portugal
"Why do you have a passion for a country? Why were you born there? Why do you speak the language? Why do you admire culture?These are only a few questions that can be asked when reading Nelson's admirable work. There is a deep knowledge in his texts and above all a great passion of a citizen of the world for Portugal. By chance, Nelson was born in Portugal. But what is in the subtext of many of his works is a passion that comes from our Mothers.It comes from the smell we learned when we were little ones in our mothers' kitchen and in the kitchen of our grandparents.It comes from the sea. The immense sea that is always in front of us and makes us dream of the whole world.It comes from many days of heat and blue sky but, I have for me, that comes mainly from the light. From the light when it is September, and the light flows through the walls of white towns or when we are in the field, makes the trees of imperial bearing fall asleep.And it comes from centuries of poets who in Portuguese and with writing without any excess, we are filmed in an ancestral knowledge, painful, sometimes suffered, often amazed, but always singular. The knowledge with which we look at our land."
Marli Monteiro, Executive Director Center of Portugal
