Mauro De Bettio Photo Workshop Adventures 2 600


Travel, Street, People, and Documentary Photographer


Mauro is a master at travel and documentary photography. Born and raised in a little village in the Italian Alps, he is now based in Barcelona, Spain. 

Mauro enjoys exploring vanishing cultures, ancient traditions, and contemporary culture, always retaining the human element, spending his life working on projects regarding social and human rights issues. This curiosity for such different cultures and ways of living led him to the country’s most hidden corners to capture the emotion of several individuals and their unique histories. People of distinct cultures, characters, and dogmas, who have opened a window on their stories, letting emotions, trauma, suffering, and a perpetual light of life and joy in their eyes shine through. Mauro says, “Photography is a fantastic storytelling medium. Just ask yourself what story you want to tell and photography can bring you there”.

Mauro’s work has won numerous awards including 1st place at National Geographic Italy 2018, 1st place at TIFA, 2nd at PX3, 1st place at FIIPA, 2nd place at International Photographer of the Year, 1st place at Urban Photography, Lensculture Portrait Awards, Winner at American Photography, 1st place at All About Photo.
