Photography by Marcus


Marcus Schl¸«äschen - Photographer

Marcus grew up in Western Europe and initially came to Canada for an extended linguistic study. At the time, he had no idea that his visit would profoundly change the course of his life.
Having a deep love for nature, he was awed by the splendor of the Canadian Rockies and could not wait to return to this country of vast and spectacular landscapes after completing his education.

Three and a half years later, Marcus arrived full of hopes and dreams back in Canada, with a suitcase in one hand, and his precious Rollei camera in the other.
Several years later, he married a beautiful girl from Alberta, they purchased their first home together and became proud parents of a lovely little boy. Since children don't stay small for very long, he took many photographs of their little boy as he grew up, which of course was the perfect training for him as a young professional photographer.

Marcus received his education in professional photography, and worked numerous years in the fields of architectural, corporate and advertising photography. When he moved with his family to British Columbia's West Coast, wedding photography & life-style portraits became a large part of his business.

Marcus is passionate about his chosen profession, as it offers him and his wife a unique lifestyle, which frequently involves travel and meeting people from all walks of life.
Studio photography is part of his work, but most of the time, weddings, family portraits or commercial location assignments requires travel throughout Vancouver Island, and once in a while to the Lower Mainland and the Gulf Islands.

His photographs have been published in numerous magazines in Canada, the US and Germany, advertising brochures, in-house publications, newspapers, websites,, sales presentations and even election campaigns.
Corporate clients used his photographs for sales presentations and win prestigious awards.

Marcus stands with one foot in today's digital world, while the other is firmly planted in the artistic world of film and traditional darkroom work.
Many of his photography assignments are in colour, but his specialty and passion is the creation of fine art black and white photography, which lends his work a unique and distinctive look, superbly suited for creative portraits and fine art wedding photography.
