Born and raised in Buenos Aires, Argentina. One day, Mariano had a crazy idea: to become a Director of Photography. As he travelled the world since he was a little kid and lived a multicultural life, the decision to move to Los Angeles to continue with his dream was a no-brainer.
Mariano’s film background is a mix of documentaries and short films, which gives him the flexibility and unique vision to approach different projects.
Coming from an Argentinean family and his deep love for European cinema, makes Mariano’s cinematography perspective unique. His special approach to natural light (coming from Vérité Docs background) helps his fresh eye to every frame composition. His visual “voice” is refined, stylized, and most importantly, it reflects the storytelling.
Active Member of the ADF (Argentinian Society of Cinematographers).
Not a good cook and will probably loose one grape tomatoes every time he does a salad.
