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. 

About the Photographer:

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 January 2015 the Sintra Municipal Civic Council published an article about my work. I had an article on BoredPanda.com showcasing some of my photographs. 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.

After two years and over 70,000 photographs I am ready to release a book that I can be truly proud of. "Quinta da Regaleira: A Book of Light and Shadows" will contain more than 80 stunning photographs of the UNESCO Heritage site of Quinta da Regaleira. 


The book design is completed - all the images have been selected and the layout has been finished. The photographs were chosen to provide a unique range of scenes that blend elegantly with each other. The book flows beautifully, and I am  very excited about it, and can't wait to see it come to life in print.

Now this is where you come in. I'm seeking funds to pay the printing costs. 300 copies of the book will be printed in hardcover with 120 high-definition pages. There is a section at the back which details the technical information about each image. There is one large photograph per page, and several double page spreads featuring panoramic images.

This is an incredibly unique book. There has never been any book published that showcases the majesty and classical beauty of Quinta da Regaleira in photographic form.

Risks and challenges

By backing this project, you'll help me to achieve a life-long dream, but you'll also be helping yourself! Over on the right side of the page are a list of the items and experiences I'm offering for your support. I've designed the pledge levels to give you excellent value. In each case the combined retail value greatly exceeds the amount you pledge to receive it.

If you can't pledge, please share this project with your friends and family, and with your social networks on Facebook and Twitter. The more people that know about it, the better chance it has of succeeding.

Remember - Kickstarter projects are all-or-nothing. In order to produce the book, the project has to meet its funding goal, or no money changes hands and the book will likely not see the light of day.

Thanks for your support, in any amount! Obrigado!
