Switching to an area that allowed his creativity and technical ability to flourish, Mário made a move from engineering and graduated in product design. His career naturally evolved, however, through his passion: photography. It is here that his skills and ideas are best expressed, especially in fashion photography where he is attracted to the combination of the aesthetic and technique and to being able to move in areas such as portrait, architecture etc
Over the last few years he has been one of the leading fashion photographers in Portugal. Awarded by Fashion Awards as the best fashion photographer in 2011, Mário Príncipe has, since 2002, collaborated with major fashion publications including Vogue, Elle and Glamour among others as well as shooting Adcampaigns for the most prestigious brands in the country.
Today he is one of the few photographers to contribute internationally with Condé Nast group magazines.
Heavily influenced by Steven Meisel, Mert and Marcus, Helmut Newton, David Baley and Guy Bourdin among others, Mário is always trying to feed his visual culture with a more eclectic fashion style.
