Mario Moreno was born in South Africa in 1965 and moved to the city of Malaga when he was 12. Mario’s interest in photography began at the age of 18 thanks to a Yashica 2000 Super. Self-taught, he participated in local contests and exhibitions and his many trips all over the world allowed him to share visual moments from beautiful countries. He then went on to live two exciting years in Cumbuco, Brazil, which happens to be a fantastic place to kiteboard. Here, he developed his skills in Kiteboarding photography and achieved numerous cover shots in many International magazines. When he moved to South Africa in 2006, his photography moved focus to African wildlife and landscape photography. His work has received international awards, and several of his images have been selected as finalists in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition. Some of his clients over the past 12 years include Canon, Sony BMG, Kiteboarding Magazine, Wild and Travel Africa to name a few. Mario continues to travel around the African continent in search of that “ Perfect Moment “ . . .
