I’m Marc. I’m a wedding photographer based in Fareham, near Portsmouth, and have been a photographer for well over 10 years now. I’ve always been creative, ever since I was young, but never really found the outlet to enable me to express myself. This was until I picked up my first ‘proper camera’. I started off shooting long exposure photography in a style called Light Painting. You can see some examples in my Light Art gallery.
I was noticed by Amateur Photographer Magazine who wrote an article on me. I then started getting access to areas that were difficult to get to, such as Stonehenge. As a result of that, I was picked up by some national newspapers, won the ‘Urban Photographer of the year’ award and wrote a Light Painting Masterclass in Digital Photographer magazine. Since then, I’ve been published worldwide, from UK broadsheets to obscure Eastern European art magazines and even The Portsmouth News.
Noticing my love for the technical side of Photography, I was approached by a couple to shoot their wedding. Now, some 10 years later, wedding photography has become my equal passion.
Born and raised in London, I feel lucky to now live on the south coast near Portsmouth. There are so many amazing venues near me, and such a range of locations, it really makes for a good mix of photography. Over the years, I’ve shot weddings in France, Corfu and Santorini.
I’m a big lover of film, the moving image kind. My favourite directors are David Lynch, Takashi Miike, Terry Gilliam, Christopher Nolan, Shane Meadows, even some classic Kevin Smith! Not an exhaustive list by any means. I appreciate all cinematography and like to think I’m subconsciously applying similar rules when I have camera in hand.
Whilst my portfolio shows a range of styles, particularly for a wedding photographer, I hope the broad range of images in there go a long way towards showing my creativity. This level of creativity is what I try and add to all images I make, and all weddings I shoot. I try not to fall in to a style, as styles change and that would limit my approach to your wedding.
Now that you know a little about me, let me know a little about you…
