Marcelo Maragni was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil. According to his mother’s idea, he was ment to be an architect in a quest of changing the world. Instead, he preferred to take possession of his father’s camera and learn another craft on his own.

Curious and inventive, his career has been led by the challenge to create new and striking images, conception or execution-wise. Maragni is specialized in action sports, but also moves through other kinds of photography such as fashion, dance, travel, and nature, always pursuing experience and complementary techniques.

Maragni believes that technology supports creativity, expanding the possibilities of photography. But he won’t leave the pencil and paper: Always aware, he carries a pocket notebook for new photo ideas and equipment adaptations, in a tireless effort to keep his job ever evolving.
