Hey there, my name is maique.

I’m a geeky photographer, who toots.

I’m married to movieStar and we have a baby daughter, tinyMovieStar. I’m VERY lucky!

Looking for photos? Sure… I have some photos on Flickr, there’s a sort of life log on Instagram, and, if you’re looking for an official site, you’ll find one at

Stuff to read? Look no further, that’s what {micro maique} is here for.

Oh, and you can read ‘maique’ as ‘mike’. That’s how it sounds when a Portuguese reads it…

Home is sweet and sunny Lisbon.
Home is also the lovely island of Príncipe.


If you’d like to get in touch, even if it’s just to say hi, you can do that on Mastodon, or Telegram.

Privacy minded folks can reach out on Signal.

Email is also cool, you can use hey [@] maique [.] eu for that.


If you enjoy the content I’m sharing, either here or on the photo social sites, feel free to help support my extravagant lifestyle.


I will thank you forever.

If you’re looking for copies of some of my photos, you’ll find them at theShop. Let me know if the one you’re looking for is missing.

I am also offering photo walks around Lisbon, do let me know if you’d like to join them.

And, finally, there is also an affiliate links page, with some services I use. If you’re into one of them, and thinking about signing up, maybe check it out.
