about me

Hi, my name is Marco and I’m addicted to photography.

What else is there to know about me? Well I’m in my mid thirties, married to a beautiful woman and father of two adorable children.

I started getting addicted to the Interestingness stream on Flickr in the midst of 2009. By the end of the year I was charged and ready to dive head first into photography. I bought a DSLR along with some Strobist stuff and started to recreate what I prefer and love to view: portraits. I was never interested in taking pictures of landscapes, architecture or still lifes. It was portraiture all along. I fixed up an unused storage room in our cellar to be my very own little photo studio and started practicing with every decent looking person I could get in front of my lens.

Now, over a year and a half later, I'm still practicing and hopefully, no, knowingly will never stop learning. I have shifted my photographic interests towards the possibilities of creative editing lately. I love that there are no more boundaries to my creativity and I love to push myself a little further with every single image I create. I’ve started a 52 weeks project for the sole purpose of expanding my skills in the art of digital editing.

Thank you for stopping by my blog. I really appreciate your input. Your encouragement is what keeps me going.
