Marcio was born and raised in Brazil in 1984 and is of Japanese descent. He has always displayed a keen interest in learning more about the culture of the country of origin of his ancestors. The opportunity to live in Japan was a challenge he could not leave behind, so, spurred by his curiosity, he moved to Japan at the age of 22 years, to discover further what this step would hold in store for him.
In Japan, Marcio began shooting, met some local photographers and gradually made new friendships. New opportunities began developing for him, resulting in his photography becoming an integral part of his lifestyle ever since. His initial objective was to stay there for two years, but ended up spending eight years in Japan and still counting..
Discovering new places and working with fascinating people, are some of the best things that the art of photography has offered Marcio. The genre of photography he features in his portfolio, includes portraits, lifestyle, action sports and nature.
