The following images are from a recent campaign for Aspria which had a particularly well executed pre visualisation as you can see from the scamps by Lisa Tse and our final execution below.
Just got an honourable mention for “Smokescreen”
“MARC ORIGINALLY TRAINED AS A FASHION DESIGNER AND SPENT 25 YEARS DEVELOPING CLOTHING BRANDS AROUND THE WORLD. HAVING PICKED UP HIS FIRST POLAROID CAMERA AT AGE 5 AND HAVING CONTINUOUSLY TAKEN PHOTOS THROUGH HIS CAREER IN FASHION, HE DECIDED HE NEEDED A CHANGE, WHICH RESULTED IN HIM LEAVING THE CLOTHING BUSINESS AND TAKING UP PHOTOGRAPHY FULL TIME. MARC’S FASHION PHOTOGRAPHY HAS A DARK AESTHETIC OFTEN COMBINED WITH AN OBSCURE NARRATIVE ALLOWING INDIVIDUAL IMAGES TO STAND ON THEIR OWN AND RETAIN THE VIEWERS CURIOSITY.
These are almost like frames from a movie taken at a decisive moment. Darkness and Light, Good and Evil, Love and Hate are regular themes that appear in his work. Most of the advertising work that Marc takes on is fashion or style related. Coming from a design background gives him a sense of how a garment should hang and what the best way of representing it is. He is also sought after for his lighting techniques which sometimes involve quite elaborate setups. Comfortable in both location and studio his images have a depth and clarity as well as a sense of trying to convey an emotion to the viewer.

I just found out that the image below of the mercurially beautiful Flo Dron just won an award in the prestigious Kontinent Awards 2014. This was a real team effort and wouldn’t have happened if it weren’t for Flo Dron (Select Models) and the rest of the very talented team made up of Emma Winter (Set Design), Felix Elizabetta Forma (Styling), Michelle Web (Hair and Makeup), Anne Marie Lawson (Hair and Makeup Assistance) and Michael Furlonger Photographic Assistance.
