About me

"Photography, as an expressive language, allows the rediscovery and the learning of capturing those things of reality that are often overlooked by the natural view of man."
Mariu Paolini (In: "Caracas, A Photographic Approach to his Urban Experience" @ 2004).

Born in the city of Caracas, Venezuela Maria is a bachelor of the School of Social Communication, mention of Audiovisual Arts, of the Universidad Católica Andrés Bello (UCAB). She has over 11 years of international experience as a film, television and advertising producer in Venezuela, Chile and Colombia.

Photography has always been an art that she is been passionate about and has been present in her career. To such point that, in the last 3 years, it became the fundamental pillar of her professional life. She began her work as an associate photographer in a studio in Washington DC, USA. And during that stage had the wonderful opportunity to portray preschoolers and babies. Most of the sessions were held in schools and kindergartens; But they were also done in parks and open spaces, with the participation of parents and relatives, who wanted to take advantage of the theme of the spring and autumn seasons.

Currently she lives in the city of Viña del Mar, Chile. A city that offers you the perfect setting to frame unique moments, and that is why she decided to undertake her own studio here. With the purpose of continuing to develop her natural talent and offer her experience to the local schools and families.

The invitation for you is to learn more about her art work here. You will be able to find images with the small ones of the house (kids and pets) and family portraits. You will also enjoy the most beautiful natural landscapes and interesting urban views of some of the most amazing cities in the world.
