What can we do for you?

We offer professional high dynamic range photography alongside digital and tangible products. Each of our packages include an online, mobile, & print PASS gallery for easy sharing across all platforms. 


What is PASS?

PASS is for SHARING. Plain and simple. Galleries are hosted for a 10 year period and can be viewed on any device so your photos can go everywhere you do; ready to be shared at any moment with your friends and family. Order beautiful prints directly from the galleries that are shipped right to your door! PASS frees you from out of date DVDs and USB drives - it is the new way to share high resolution photos. (To view a preview, visit the Portfolio tab on this website!)


What kind of camera equipment does Mario use? 

Mario chooses his camera equipment based on a personal consultation to most effectively capture the moments you want to remember. His collection comprises of Canon Professional Digital Cameras (5D Mark III & 7D) and Canon Lenses (Canon 24-70 F2.8 L, Canon 70-200 F2.8 II L, Canon 100 F2.8 Macro) and a Sigma 12-24 F3.5 Lens. He may utilize more than one type of camera or lens during sessions in conjunction with light modifiers.


How long has Mario been shooting professionally?

Mario has been shooting professionally since 2010 while continuing to learn new techinques and invest in his equipment.


Does Mario work alone on shoots?

Mario works alone or with a second or more preferred photographers. We will be happy to discuss our advice with you based on what you are planning.


Do you provide studio space for portraits?

We offer 90 square feet of studio space in South Austin. The studio is ideal for portrait sessions utilizing backdrops and lighting modifiers. Please schedule a personal consultation to determine the best location for your shoot.


Is every image Photoshopped?

Mario works in Photoshop but his primary workflow is in Lightroom. He does not Photoshop every image but will utilize the program to make specific photos more flattering, to create surreal images, or to remove obstructions.


What is provided for a photo booth?

All photo booth packages include a backdrop and props based on your personal consultation and the items we currently have in stock. We will work directly with you to recommend the best location for your photo booth at your event venue and to brainstorm themes for the shoot. We are more than happy to scout theme specific props for your photo booth and will work closely with you to stay within your budget parameters.
