MiniCV01Born in 1966, Marcelo started to work with photography as a freelancer for Brazilian and international press agencies through the French agency SIPA Press in 1996.

His work has been focused mainly in the cultural field. He develops signature photography courses and workshops for the São Paulo Museum of Modern Art and supervises photographers in study groups to develop personal projects. He also coordinates and edits the work of many photographers for exhibitions in local and international events.

In his signature work, the universe of women was his initial focus. For years, he took a series of photographs of Brazilian stage actresses and exhibited them in São Paulo and Santos, in Brazil, and, at the end of 2001, in Portugal.

The Íntima, Luz Íntima (Intimate, Intimate Light) project, which addressed a metaphor on the universe of women, was exhibited at the Pinacoteca do Estado (Art Gallery of the State of São Paulo) in 2002 and, as a result of this work, he was granted a scholarship by the Portuguese Photography Center to carry out a similar project in Portugal. This photographic material was exhibited in São Paulo in 2005.

He was the general curator of the 2008 “Paraty in Foco” Photography Festival.

In 2009, he created Schoeler Editions, a publishing house aimed at the Fine Art market. It creates limited print run books and portfolios signed by the artists.
