About Mario Moreno

Joined The Planet in Johannesburg, South Africa on the 17th of May 1965. I spent my childhood in this country until the age of 12. It was then when my parents decided to leave the country and return to Spain in search of new opportunities for the family. The city of Malaga was going to be the place of choice where I would live for some time.

Interest in photography began at the age of 18 thanks to a Yashica 2000 Super. This camera, many books and magazines would allow me to submerge in the world of photography using self-tuition as my main tool. Serious photography would only start in the 90s, participating in local contests and exhibitions but specially thanks to my many trips all over the world and a strong need to transmit my emotions and share visual moments in such intense countries like Thailand, Indonesia, Morocco, South Africa, Kenya or Tanzania to name a few. It was from this moment on and with help from the recently introduced digital format that I would turn my passion into a creative profession, which had always been my dream.

I lived two exciting years in Cumbuco, a small fishing village in the northeastern state of Ceara in Brazil. I enjoyed this wonderful place along with my wife Alexandra and children Noah and Yannick. Cumbuco happens to be one of the best Kiteboarding destinations in the world, a fact that worked to my advantage as it helped me develop my skills in Kiteboarding Photography achieving numerous cover shots in many International magazines

In 2006 I moved to South Africa where my family grew thanks to my son Khai. This new stage as far as photography goes is focused on the African continent concentrating in my true passions which are wildlife, landscape and travel photography. Since my arrival in this amazing continent I have extensively explored Kruger, Kgalagadi and Karoo in South Africa, the Kalahari and Okavango in Botswana, the Serengeti, Ngorongoro and Kilimanjaro in Tanzania and Masai Mara in Kenya.

Some of my clients over the past 12 years include Canon ( Europe, Africa & Middle East ), Sony BMG ( Spain ), Kiteboarding Magazine ( USA & Germany ), Wild ( South Africa ), Travel Africa ( UK ) to name a few .

My wildlife and landscape work has been internationally awarded and over the past three years several images have been selected as finalists in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year competition.

I constantly travel around the African continent in search of that Perfect Moment . . . .
