Hello, Welcome To My Website

I'm a passionate photographer based in Melbourne Australia. I am capturing some of my best moments while exploring our beautiful world

I'm Maurice Mangiagli, a passionate photographer based in Melbourne, Australia. I use photography as a means to document the world around me. I create images that call attention to things that others overlook.

On every outing, I set myself a challenge to look at the world in a different light – to discover beauty or something of interest in an otherwise ordinary location. It has little to do with the things you see, and everything to do with the way you see them.

I call Melbourne, Australia home, although I have travelled, and continue to travel extensively.

In a previous life I was a jeweller by trade, which was what started me on my photography journey. I wanted to keep a photographic memory of every diamond piece I made, so I set out to learn how to use a camera. Little did I know that jewellery photography is arguably the most difficult of all photographic genres to master - but master it I did. It took many, many years and an extreme amount of patience.

My jewellery photography then led me into the studio enviroment where I was photographing jewellery on female models for magazines and advertising, I had to master studio lighting all over again, while being taught and mentored by one of Australia's best photographers.

My journey then continued into wedding photography and working with natural & fill light in the field, and then ultimately into landscape and travel photography.

My work has been published in many forms throughout Australia in various publications incl Harpers Bazaar & Vogue magazines, instore advertising incl Myer, numerous billboard ads, catalogues & calendars. I've won numerous competitions, held exhibitions, and have completed a Diploma in Photography.

I hope to meet you out in the field one day!
