Mauro is a fashion photographer and photojournalist based in Milan, Italy.
Born in 1976 in Turin, Italy, he spent his youth with a passion for music, sport and photography that would lead him to choose his natural career path.
In 1996, after graduating in Photographic Arts, he took his first steps working in the field of photojournalism and started travelling around the world, everywhere... living for some time in London and Los Angeles.
During this time, he focused on photographic techniques, experimenting the use of film and prints in the darkroom.
Later, the transition to digital photography simplified and sped up his work, as he specialized in using computers, Photoshop, new software and technology.
The passion for his work makes him a tireless, yet sensitive photographer, always looking for the perfect picture, always looking for a new project to pursue.
In 2004, he was the first Italian photographer to get himself and his camera into Guantanamo Bay for a reportage.
After numerous and various experiences in the field, he moved to Milan, where he now lives and works as a freelance professional photographer.
Attentive to the rapid changes in the market, he has switched from reportage to fashion, focusing on celebrity portraits and events. This variety of expertise has enabled him to successfully tackle any assignment given to him.
He is currently working for some major brands, always busy and in motion, always looking for new targets and exciting new challenges.
