About Mark

Born in Rio de Janeiro, 1955
Has been working with photography since the 70’s and today he’s considered a generalimagemaker, but being one of the precursors in panoramic photography, probably the pioneer in Brazil, he’s a specialist on 360 imagery.

His first paid job shooting 360 dated November 1997 for one of the biggest advertising agencies in South America (ARTPLAN), and after that one has been living and sustaining his family with 360s, being it stills or videos (began shooting 360 videos in 2011 and professionally in 2012).

All of this gave him the nickname Mr. 360. His slogan since the 80s has been very current until today –

It’s not WHAT you shoot. It’s the WAY you shoot.
