Mauro was born in Rome, Italy and raised in Melbourne, Australia. His professional career began around 2003 and at that stage his focus was on commercial advertising photography, primarily shooting still-life studio work.
This is where, he says, he developed his passion for light, which eventually became his concern no matter what he was shooting. A few years later, Mauro realised that he had a love for working with people and shifted his focus to fashion, beauty and portraiture where he has since shot for many of Australia's leading brands, agencies and designers, somehow managing to maintain a dedicated part of his time developing his personal artwork.
Mauro’s work is greatly influenced by many different artists and photographers, from the great masters of the Renaissance to the legends of photography during the 20th century such as Paolo Roversi, David Bailey, Herb Ritts, Richard Avedon, Helmut Newton, Ansell Adams and to a certain extent Duffy. He is also drawn to Federico Fellini's cinematographic consideration for light and composition which, he says, he strives to accomplish in his work.
