BOOK A SHOOT AT WWW.MARCTHYSSEN.COM
My love for Photography was initially inspired by my personal interest in world travel & culture. A varied cultural background, my father being Dutch & my mother being Indian always made culture for me one of the most interesting aspects to life. Testament to that is the fact that I have now visited 37 countries. I now have 16 years of shooting experience over Europe, Dubai, USA & Australia.
From my first visit to Europe for 5 months at 19 years old, with my trusty fully manual Ricoh SLR film camera, I remember coming back to Australia with 20+ rolls of film in my back-back as i had taken countless photos of churches, architecture, street scenes & art. My second round the world trip came at 24 & included my first trip to India which really opened my eyes to how colorful, vibrant and fantastic people can be as subjects to my camera.
Landscapes & architecture have always appealed to my artistic eye. Yet it was only in my mid 20's that I found the courage and confidence to do photo shoots with people and bring out their charisma & personality through the lens.
Oh ya, I've also been a Full time DJ & have played clubs in Melbourne, Miami, London, Majorca, Delhi, Dubai, Vegas, L.A. and are currently a resident DJ at Eva Longoria's club EVE in Las Vegas. Life is Good! : )
