Meet Mario Cea, amazing photographer and judge of The Nature Photography Contest.
Mario Cea is a Spanish nature photographer who is known for his amazing portraits of birds.

Besides his work as a photographer, Mario Cea is also a teacher and a speaker. He offers online and in-person courses on nature photography and high-speed photography. He shares his knowledge and experience with other photographers who want to learn his technique and improve their skills. He also participates in conferences and events related to nature photography.
