Mario Majer
Also known as Rio

Husband, Daddy of 2, Business Owner

I am  a Web Developer by profession, passionate about photography. I am the founder of CodeShore Ltd - Digital agency and ALGARVE PRO, LDA (including ALGARVE.media brand) where I work as a Managing Director as well as "Full-Stack" Web Developer, Photographer  and Designer with over 15 years of experience creating bespoke web solutions. My passion for photography was born during my childhood when my father taught me to use analog cameras. I remember taking photos for weeks and immersing myself in the photographic processing in the darkroom. After having fun with several digital compact cameras over the number of years I decided in 2006 to put my hands on Digital SLRs and I ended up building my Canon collection. Photography is now my second main job. I am lucky to live in the Algarve with my wife, two kids and a dog.   

My style 

I always prefer to use natural light, simplicity, and instinct to capture the raw beauty and spontaneousness of a situation. My style is a combination of fine art and documentary-style photography. Most of the time I would ask you both NOT to look at the camera. Each image captures an emotion, tells a story, or portrays a mood. I don’t just focus on the bride and groom the entire day; instead, I try to capture all the little moments that tend to get unnoticed.
