Director Biography - Michelle Mancini

Mia is not only a photographer doing her job.

She thinks out of the box.

She grew up holding a camera in her hands since her first baby steps in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She fell hardly in love with photography at a very young age and spent most of her time capturing her surroundings in special (and sometimes) very touching scenarios. Mia not only knows the hows and whens to capture an emotion but what to do with it. Her self-taught skills got her improving constantly in an emotive yet serious way.

So if you love getting involved with creative projects and honest feedback are in the right place.
