Mauricio Santana, São Paulo Member Since April 2012 Artist Statement May 2012 marks five years of Mauricio Santana, better known as Tux, as a photographer.
He began self-taught sharing his passion for photography with a job that could pay the bills. Today, as a professional photographer, he uses all his free time available to study, research and increase his portfolio. Besides shooting bands (his specialty) in promo pictures or on stage, he is also improving his clicks on other areas.
Something that began as a challenge, today it's part of a enviable and recognized job by many artists who use his photos in their official websites, MySpace pages and countless flyers.
In a world which says that nothing else can be invented, he can print, with great personality, his ideas and he's already identified by his so particular point of view through the camera.
He's not only a band photographer, but an artist of feelings and emotions.
