Who is Mauricio Couti?

Fascinated by images, Mauicio Couti, since childhood walked around with a photographic camera by his side.
In the 80's, as a teen, he bought his first analogic camera, a Pentax K1000, now a classic, which later he retired and substituted by the digital ones. With it he completed the following courses:

*Photography 1 and 2 at PUC-rj

A few years later he upgraded to courses in the USA:

*Advanced Photography 1 and 2 at University of San Diego, USD.

Back to Brazil, he consolidates his career as a photographer/actor/director. His passion is to photograph people so he specialized in photographing actors and models both for agencies and advertising companies. But, never forgetting the "common" people that just have the desire to be captured by a professional and his amazing total make over, becoming, for one day, what they always imagined capable of being, making this moment sublime thru pictures.

Now, back in the USA, Mauricio and Mateus, work as a team. Mateus is the make-up artist and also a model. They will do everything to make you look amazing and as fashionable as you can. They absolutely love what they do. To be photographed by them is an experience of a lifetime, simply unforgettable.

Our Mission:

To meet every client's projects, either if it is for a professional work as a model or actor, or just to have their portraits taken by a professional, we try our best to make them look their best and feel as fabulous as possible, even if they never had their pictures taken by a professional. At the same time, give them the best experience they could possibly have in a photo shoot. It is our goal to make the day of the shoot, one of the best days of their lives. 

What we provide:

Transportation to and from the studio or location in an SUV Mercedes-Benz, if necessary, up to 15 miles from the studio in La Mesa. Every adult shoot includes 1 makeup and hair styling. Our photo shoots are perfect to be used in a portfolio (professional models), fashion editorial magazines (for brands) or just to decorate your house (non models); 4 different packages to choose from, with 1 to 4 different looks. Call or email for more details on pricing.
