Giovanni Bello

I am Giovanni Bello, a freelance journalist, photographer and video editor based in Florianópolis, State of Santa Catarina, Brazil. I'm also always coming and going from São Paulo. 

I have a car for quick travels. I am available for travelling longer distances too.


ABOUT ME: I joined the trainee program of Folha de S.Paulo in February 2014. From May 2014 to December 2017 I have worked at TV Folha, the newspaper's video department. Parallel to that, in 2017 I've worked as a photojournalist at Folha (it is Brazil's major newspaper).

Among the things I have covered for the newspaper, there’s the World Cup 2014, Brazil’s general elections, Rio 2016 Olympics, the impeachment of Dilma Rousseff, breaking news in general, local and international issues.
