The Art of Portrait Photography

Family - children portrait photography, glamour photography, pet portraits, actors head shots, group portrait photography, personal & business portrait photography

Portrait photography & Glamour photography
Elegant & stylish or casual & fun at the location of your choice – our studio, the privacy of your home or your favorite outdoor location.

Family portrait photography & pet photography
A successful family portrait, casual or formal, should reveal the spirit and unique personality of the family. 

The nature-oriented family feels more comfortable in a natural outdoor setting, while perhaps another family prefers  the setting of their well-appointed home that they love and cherish.

Fashionable and elegant dress could require a formal but relaxed style, while casual clothing benefits the most from the informal or fun type of photo portrait.

Baby portraits and children photography
Photographing children requires a totally different approach than photographing adults.
If neccessary, Marcus will lie on the floor and let the kids peer through his camera to capture the emotions of the children in their world. 
The most natural place for children photography is in their own home or outdoors at play.

Studio or location photography
We offer studio as well as location photography.  In our experience, the best results for portrait photography are achieved on location, simply because people are more comfortable and relaxed in their own home or office than in a photo studio setting.

We are blessed on Vancouver Island with an abundance of fantastic scenery, ideal for  location  portrait photography. Nanaimo's beautiful harbour waterfront, the serene beaches of Parksville near the Pacific Shores Resort, the Milner Gardens in Qualicum Beach or the fantastic gardens of the Governors House in Victoria are just a few of the wonderful locations that are available to us for location photography.   

The world renowned natural scenery of Ucluelet and Tofino is also one of the most spectacular locations for vacation family photo portraits on Vancouver Island.

Artistic photo portraits: Victoria, Nanaimo, Parksville, Port Alberni and Tofino

Business and Portfolios

Model portfolios and actor's head shots
Models & actors are often required to slip into different roles and it is vital for their success to have a modelling portfolio or head shots that portrays the scope of their talents.
We offer studio or location photography for our clients in the arts community.

“ your image - your success . . .”

Business portrait photography
The success  of a business portrait depends on the purpose it is to be used for. 
A corporate executive requires a photo that emphasizes confidence and character, while a sales representative is better served with an approachable and friendly image.
Marcus has acquired many years of experience, creating outstanding portraits for the corporate and business community.  
His commissioned photographs have been published in corporate publications, annual reports and promotional literature.
