About Me

Cinematographer. Filmmaker. Storyteller. 

Mariano is a second generation cinematographer and has more than 30 years of experience in the videography business.  He is forever grateful to his father for teaching him the craft of videography. Mariano's keen eye for creating one of a kind memories was developed at an early age.  He refined his skills by accompanying his father to events and observed the magic that took place behind the lens. Mariano was captivated by his father's profession and followed in his footsteps. He attended the University of North Texas and earned a Bachelor's Degree with emphasis in film production.

 

Thirty years later, Mariano's love and passion to film and produce videos that capture life's most precious moments continues.   In addition to filming special events, Mariano is employed as a producer and editor for a media company.  His talent, coupled with his passion to create films, has been recognized on numerous occasions.  Mariano is the recipient of eleven EMMY Academy Awards and three Telly Awards, recognizing the finest editing in the industry.

Despite his professional success, Mariano is an extremely humble man.   He is married to his high school sweetheart and is the proud father of two sons, Mariano III and Elian.
