TUTOR PROFILE : PAULO CEZAR DE SOUZA:
Paulo is the tutor for all the full time courses, and some of the part time courses.
Paulo Cezar de Souza has been a photography teacher with the “Fluminense Photography
Society – SFF, for over 10 years. [Fluminese is a word used to describe Rio and
the surrounding areas]. Paulo Cezar has shown his work in several expositions –
national and international, and has received several awards, including first prize
in photography at an event organized by “Fortaleza de Santa Cruz da Barra”, in the
city of Niterói.
On a personal level, Paulo is a friendly and charismatic man with a great sense of
humor and a cheeky grin! He has retired from his full time job, and so now dedicates
his time to photography. He works and exhibits at schools and galleries in Rio and
its sister city Niterói, which is just across Guanabara Bay. He really is a pleasure
to learn from and a great teacher!
Some of the photos on this page were provided by centre students Sid Bond, Delcio
Capistrano, Eryck Machado, Paulo Figueira & Luiz Ferreira. Also, of course Paulo
Cezar de Souza, your teacher.
WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU BOOK YOUR PLACEMENT?
Once you have applied for a placement, we'll contact you and send you our Welcome
Pack. You'll also receive Log-on details and password for our Volunteer Extranet
where you'll have access to all the documentation and information which we've put
together to facilitate preparations for your adventure! Your Project Co-ordinator
for your country will liaise with you throughout the arrangements process, as well
as while you're on your placement and on your return home.
The documents you'll have access to also include a Country Factfile, Safety Guide

we can to make your stay one that you'll never forget. This is a truly awesome,
elegant and beautiful country.
As with all our destinations, the culture and heritage is different to what you're
used to ... which, although one of the most exciting aspects of travelling, should
be borne in mind. Self-reliance and independence are highly appreciated in all
our destinations and will help you to make the most of this wonderful opportunity!
