Mauricio Arias invites fellow photographers into a world where every snapshot tells a story, transcending mere images to become narratives of light, shadow, and emotion. With a career spanning over 14 years at the forefront of Chrisman Studios, Mauricio has woven his experiences from his beginnings in
Nicaragua, his upbringing in California, and his current life in Italy into a rich tapestry of artistic expression and edagogical dedication.

Beyond his accolades and international recognition, Mauricio is a perpetual student of life and photography, an ethos derpinning
his approach to capturing images and sharing knowledge. His journey has been marked by curiosity and humility, leading him to explore over 15 countries as an educator, where he has
conducted more than 35 workshops. Mauricio’s passion lies not just in the art of photography itself but in the joy of fostering growth and inspiration within the photography community.

As a formal ambassador for PROFOTO and a celebrated figure among the best in the wedding photography industry, Mauricio’s philosophy extends beyond capturing moments. He believes in the power of photography to uncover the unseen and to tell stories that might otherwise go unnoticed. His work, recognized by MyWed.com, Fearless Photographers, Junebug Weddings, and more, reflects a commitment to excellence and innovation. However, it’s his role as a mentor and educator that truly encapsulates his contribution to the field.

Mauricio’s approach to teaching is rooted in a belief in the potential of every photographer to uncover their unique voice.

He shares the technical expertise required to excel in the fast-
paced world of wedding photography and the softer skills of storytelling, creativity, and emotional connectivity. His sessions are designed to inspire, challenge, and elevate,
encouraging photographers to see beyond the lens and embrace the artistry of their craft.

His work has been spotlighted by global media outlets like Huffington Post and CNN, not for fame, but as a testament to his vision and impact. Yet, in his own words, the true measure of success comes from the moments of breakthrough and illumination he sees in his students and peers.

For Mauricio, photography is a dialog—a means to connect, communicate, and share perspectives. As he steps onto the stage or into a workshop, he does so not as an icon, but as a fellow traveler on the journey of discovery and creativity. He invites you to join him in this journey, to explore the depths of what photography can be, and to find your unique story within the infinite frames of possibility.

In welcoming Mauricio Arias to share his insights and experiences, we’re not just learning from an acclaimed photographer; we’re embarking on a journey with a dedicated educator, committed to enriching the tapestry of the photography community through shared knowledge, mutual respect, and an unending curiosity for what lies beyond the next shot.
