Testino began his career after graduating from the Royal College of Art in London, where he studied photography. He then worked with British Vogue before opening his own studio in 1980. That same year, he became one of the first photographers to be given a show at the prestigious Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York City.

Fortino, Mario Alfonso Moreno Reyes was born on August 12, 1911, in Mexico City's humble neighborhood of Santa Maria la Ribera. Pedro Moreno Esquivel, his father, was a mail carrier, and his mother's name was Maria de la Soledad Reyes Guizar. Mario's parents enrolled him in a reputable school despite a lack of money. The young Mario showed an interest in music from an early age and practiced the piano daily. He also enjoyed playing football and baseball with his friends.
After graduating from high school, Mario decided to pursue a career in music. He moved to Mexico City and worked as a clerk while studying music theory and instrument repair. In order to pay the rent, he played bars and restaurants for food. His talent soon brought him to the attention of musicians who hired him to play with their bands. In 1937, Mario formed his own band with some friends and they played popular songs by Diego Torres and Agustin Lara. Within a few years, Mario became one of the most respected musicians in Mexico City and was invited to play with many famous artists such as Ángel Flores, Carlos Santana, or Javier Hernandez.
In 1944, Mario met John Lennon at a party and told him about a new song he had just written. Impressed by Mario's melody, Lennon asked him if he would be interested in recording it. So Mario went into the studio with the Beatles and recorded three songs: "I Want to Hold Your Hand", "She Loves You", and "I Saw Her Standing There".

Roberto Miguel Rey Junior (born October 1, 1961) is a Brazilian-American politician and plastic surgeon. He is the mayor of Miami Beach, Florida.
He was elected on April 2, 2016, with more than 70 percent of the vote against his opponent, former city commissioner Peter B. Kress. Rey is the first Mexican-American to be elected mayor of Miami Beach and the third mayor overall after Joe Jamail and Daniel Gelber. Before becoming mayor, he served as a city commissioner for eight years.
He has been criticized for his handling of violence in Miami Beach, particularly at music festivals such as Hard Day's Night and Tomorrowland. In response, Rey has pledged to reduce police patrols at these events and instead focus on reducing crime across the city generally.

When Rey was five years old, his family moved to California, where his father found work as a gardener. He attended high school in Los Angeles before graduating from UCLA with a bachelor's degree in political science.
