Mario Schmolka is currently one of the most internationally sought-after fashion and beauty photographers. A master in the field of different styles, the Viennese born photographer has mastered the handling of staged glamour as well as capturing the spontaneous moment. This openness to seemingly contradictory elements lends Schmolka's work breadth of expression and a special appeal. 

Schmolka's career began in the late 1990s at the College of Photography with an assistant to Andreas Bitesnich. This was followed by a stay in Milan, where Schmolka quickly became part of the permanent crew of Superstudio 13, worked with photographers such as Aldo Fallai, Thomas Schenk, Liz Collins, Michael Wooley and was involved in shootings for Versace, Moschino, Prada, Etro and Trussardi. Schmolka's portfolio now includes productions for global brands like Astor, Chanel, Cartier Jewellery, Douglas, H&M, Rimmel-London, Triumph International, Palmers and Marc'o Polo. Renowned lifestyle and fashion magazines like Deutsche Vogue, GQ, GQ Style, Glamour, Deutsch Magazin, Wiener and X-Ray are among his regular clients. 

VITALE Arts & Media Management is currently advising the photographer on his next exhibition project.
