Meet: Mario Davalos

He’s been charged by an elephant in the Okavango Delta, chased by a lioness in Botswana, and had a polar bear ram his car in Kaktovik.

But for Mario Dávalos, Havas Caribbean CEO, those close encounters are “all part of the fun.”

A self-professed animal lover since childhood, Mario has also been a serious wildlife photographer since 2010, even featured in Outdoor Photographer Magazine. Check out Mario’s website for hippos, ibises, leopards, and more—with the signature low light, desaturated colors, and atmospheric mood that characterize his work.

“Wildlife photography is about observing and predicting behavior,” Mario says, “so it translates perfectly to what we do everyday at Havas. Also, the fact that I travel around the world helps me understand the difference, similarities and trends that make every market unique.”
