His presence on the FIM Motocross World Championship saw him being awarded with photographer of the year in 2009.

Nuno’s passing at the age of 52 leaves a void in the world of photography and in the hearts of those who knew him. Those fortunate enough to have worked alongside Nuno remember him not only for his skill behind the camera but also for his humor, kindness, and passion.

As we mourn the loss of Nuno Laranjeira, we also celebrate the legacy he leaves behind. Our thoughts and those of the whole MXGP family are with his loved ones during this difficult time.
