Mauricio Santana
A photographer of feelings.

May 2011, this is the month that marks four years of Mauricio Santana, better known as Tux, as a photographer.

He is self-taught and shared his passion for photography with a job that could pay his bills. Today, as a professional photographer, he uses all his time available studying, researching and increasing his portfolio shooting bands either for promotional or on stage pics.

He’s easily found shooting bands in São Paulo or in some other cities in Brazil. Within any rock or hardcore scene, he is one of a few with enough skills to face an excited, crazy crowd in small local events or big concerts in venues like Hangar 110, packed with Agnostic Front fans, or in more private, but not less intense, small concerts.

Something that began as a challenge, today it is part of a enviable and recognized job by many of the artists who use his photos in their official websites, MySpace pages and countless flyers.


In Flames (Switzerland), Otep (Los Angeles), Red Dons (USA), Will Champion (ARG), Earth Crisis (NY), 108 (NY) Symbiosis (POR), Defect Defect (USA), Cockney Rejects (UK), Strike Anywhere (USA), Rufio (USA), Interpol (NY) The Used (USA), Have Heart (USA), Kittie (CAN), LCD Soundsystem (NY), Boom Boom Kid (ARG), Horace Pinker (USA), Walls of Jericho (USA), All The Hats (ARG), D-Sailors (DE), No Use For A Name (USA), The Donnas (USA), As I Lay Dying (U.S.) Suicide Silence (USA), Cannibal Corpse (USA) among many Brazilian artists like Dance of Days, Dead Fish, Capital Inicial, Nando Reis, Cesar Menotti & Fabiano and Confronto (one of the bands of whom he is the official photographer) are those already awarded by the quality of his photos.

It did not take too long for his work to gain international prominence. In addition to photos in many publications in Japan, he is also the author of the photo for the new Boom Boom Kid EP poster and the Will Champion CD cover (both Argentinean bands).

He continues to work hard to improve his techniques and taking the next step, which is living for photography, being even more recognized by his professionalism, quality of work and perfect angles.

In a world in which they say nothing else can be invented, he is managing, with great personality, to print his ideas and is already identified by his unique point of view with the camera. His work is commonly recognized even without his signature.

More than just being a great photographer, Mauricio is first and foremost an artist who knows how to capture the right moment and to share the emotion at the right time.

He is not only a band photographer, but an artist of feelings and emotions. Read Less
