Mario was raised in Surrey, England and discovered an interest in photography at an early age by taking apart his father’s cameras. It was not until he was at university that his passion for photography truly developed. Mario found himself spending more time in the darkroom researching photographic techniques and eventually this interest superseded his original studies. He has been taking pictures ever since.
He is a self-taught photographer whose interest in science and technology is witnessed in each and every one of his highly graphic images. Much of his work involves lasers and innovative light technology - something that is often unconventional in the photographic arena–but provides Mario with new challenges and constant inspiration.
In the last 5 years Mario has moved into moving image, allowing him to offer both stills and motion to his clients.
His studio is equipped with the most up to date technology for motion control and his precision to detail sets him apart from many tabletop directors and has established him as one of the top go-to’s for luxury beauty and lifestyle brands.
Clients include: Tom Ford, Calvin Klein, Tiffany, David Yurman, La Mer, Estée Lauder, Cover Girl, Coty, Nike, Cartier, Bloomingdales, Samsung, Max Factor, De Beers, Barneys, Matrix, Armani, Burberry, Swarovski, Rimmel, and TAG Heuer.
