About Me


My name is Mauricio Tsukuda, but most people call me Mau.

I'm a mechanical engineer by profession and a photographer by passion.

I was born and raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil, but I now live in San Diego, CA with my beautiful wife and daughter, Danielle and Yuri, and our three cats, Taji, Keoki, and Onyx. I've lived in the United States since 2004 when I moved to Florida as a college student and I finally became a US citizen in February of 2019.

I have been interested in photography for as long as I can remember, as my dad would always carry an old film camera with him, and I was always fascinated by the mechanics of a camera and the developing process of photos. I taught myself how to use digital cameras over the years and while in college I started shooting and editing as much as I could. But it wasn't until I moved to California that I bought my first professional camera.

I try to be as versatile as possible with my photography by shooting portraits, landscapes, animals, etc, but my biggest passion is  automotive  photography.
