"Marcio is a perfectionist who pushes technique to the limit, using it to express the atmospheric and the inner quality of the subject. The shots he took of our students perfectly express the feeling of the school and the personalities of the individual subjects. The feel of the shoot is relaxed and easy with the essence of the people and the place shining through. Marcio is a brilliant and versatile photographer. I am delighted with the results of the work he did for us and I warmly recommend him to anyone seeking a photographer."

"If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery — isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is." (Bukowski)
