"We are all in the gutter, but some of us are looking at the stars"
Oscar Wilde.

I began my work as a professional photographer in photo journalism in 1986, working for a local newspaper called "Journal do Brasil" where I spent 5 years as a member of the photography staff. Since then I've worked in many other newspapers and magazines. Although I have a great deal of work in publicity and fashion magazines, photo journalism is where I have spent the greatest amount of my professional career.

I am drawn to photo jornalism because I enjoy being behind the camera shooting and preserving a moment in life. Some days there are many different subjects and people to be photographed. It is the diversity of photo journalism that I enjoy. I am provided the opportunity to be shooting an artist exhibition in the morning, next go to a supermarket for a story about a customer who is a sweepstakes winner. My next shot can be a tragic car accident with fatalities, or i may be sent into a slum where the traffic dealers are having a war with the local police. Then if I'm really lucky, the last shot of the day might be a theatre premier with a movie star, a concert with a major rock star or reception for a local politician. One thing about working in photo journalism, there are times you certainly feel that you've accomplished more than can fit into one day!
I very much enjoy being a member of flickr and I'm looking forward to learning more about this thing I so dearly love and do for a living, which is PHOTOGRAPHY!

The best of luck to you!!

    "Mauro has got not only excellent processing to show you but also an artistic eye to see things the way most people don't.

    His great ideas quickly hatch into superbly composed photos, and like his "pregnant" set, this guy is pregnant with talent :)

    Thanks for sharing, Mauro. Keep them coming, my friend!"

    "Mauro is a master of light and perspective. The diversity of his work demonstrates his artistic creativity and versatility. His skill behind the camera leaves me in anticipation of his next work of art. Mauro is a skilled paint and sketch artist as well, which I believe is evident in his artistic eye. I admire and respect him and his work and feel fortunate to call him friend. You are a treasure!"
