The documentary approach to photography is what Marc strongly adheres to. He considers an image to be successful when it evokes an emotional response in the viewer, as well as a sense of being there. Marc greatly admires Joe Cornish’s work, and cites him in saying that he wants “to bring out the landscape and not impose photography upon it”, yet is aware of the paradox that his work needs to have a personal character to be compelling to other people.
Fine art prints of Marc’s photographs are for sale and Marc is available for private commissions, both personal or corporate. In addition, we are happy to discuss licensing Marc’s images for your organisation or other projects like calendars, cards, books or magazines.
Marc employs various camera systems. A digital compact is used mainly for sketching, though its quality allows for a good, smaller sized print. Other systems include DSLR’s and medium and large format camera’s with a digital back. Today’s finest optics ensure that nature’s colours can be captured with brilliant clarity and tonality. Marc also uses tripods and he applies neutral density filters to make sure the exposure is within the limits of the camera’s sensor. Other filters are used sparingly, to diminish unpleasant reflections or to subtly enhance colour.
Digital post-processing is the modern day equivalent of the photographer’s dark room. Marc generally strives to get it right in camera. However, a certain amount of digital post-processing is always needed, to optimise the quality of the file in terms of sharpness, colour balance and brightness levels. Marc applies as little post-processing as possible, but as much as necessary to arrive at a natural, believable look and feel.
Fine art prints are printed on heavy weight, archival paper. These should last a lifetime, if not exposed to direct sunlight. Prints can be supplied rolled, mounted on conservation grade, acid-free board, or framed. Each print is personally inspected, titled and signed by Marc.
