Around two years ago Mario Peña started taking pictures of things he found beautiful and had access to, like nature. After getting himself some lights he spent 6 months shooting still life to understand lighting and the different techniques. Feeling ready to finally start shooting models he got in contact with a model agency in Los Angeles, and ever since he’s been doing test shoots.
He gets his inspiration from movies, music, love and life, and he always keeps his note book close to note down ideas that might pop up.
Other than a lookbook for Thread Sence, Mario’s work hasn’t been published anywhere yet, mostly because he was careful about promoting his work until he felt he had the right visions and quality to really make an impression. So here it is, let Ben Trovato Blog introduce you to Mario Peña’s work:
