About Me

Hello Friends,

I am originally Southern California but have traveled around the world.  I love photography, traveling, new adventures, outdoors, meeting new people, and the beach.  I live down in Newport Beach so when I am not traveling you will find me on the beach taking photos of the sunset or people on the beach. 

I am a freelance photographer and I like to shoot a lot of different styles.  I primarily shoot outdoors in natural light but also enjoy shooting studio.  I love work with creative and have fun people.

A photo shoot has to be fun experience for both the photographer and the model while creating a mood or story from the shoot.  I enjoy it when a model brings some personality and ideas to the shoot.  Positive energy, passion and emotion while shooting really come out in the final photos. 

My profession is outside sales and I cover the entire United States.  My schedule is pretty flexible so I can do photo shoots on weekends or during the week after work (depending on light/time of year).  I am working on doing more photography while travel to various parts in USA/world and if you are interested please send me a DM here or on my Instagram.

For rates, I do have a hourly rate for shoot and will adjust it accordingly to the shoot. I do not mind doing limited amount of "TFP" basis shoots as long as it creative, collaborative, fun, and it beneficial for the photographers and model.  Depending the shoot, I will pay for studio and model negotiate rate.

I use lightroom to share the photos and give access to the models to view all the photos take and they can select the ones they love.

Speaking of retouching, please no messages or tags from retouchers. You will be blocked. I retouch my own photos and have a network of retouchers I use that I trust for more extensive retouching work.

Cheers and I am looking forward to working with you on some creative collaboration!

"Very professional. We shot images that were a lot darker in tone and color and very different from what is in his portfolio. It was cool to be able to work with someone who was trying something different and outside of their normal scope of work. 10/10 would work with Marcus again." Read less
