The photography of Mario Moreno
1Mario Moreno is a talented and accomplished South African born photographer who has spent much of his life living and traveling abroad. “I lived two exciting years in Cumbuco, a small fishing village in the northeastern state of Ceara in Brazil. 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…” Other stops included Thailand, Indonesia, Morocco, South Africa, Kenya and Tanzania, just to name a few.
Mario returned to South Africa in 2006 to focus, “on the African continent concentrating on 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.”
His work has found success internationally. During the last three years several of his images have been selected as finalists in the prestigious BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year Competition.
Mario sums up his work this way, “I constantly travel around the African continent in search of that ‘Perfect Moment’ . . . .”
