Biography

Marnix Van Marcke has started with photography as a hobby during the seventies. Very soon his hobby transformed into a passion for landscape photography. As such he became an adopter of the “Zone System” and the “Fine Print” techniques as developed by the famous landscape photographer Ansel Adams. This experience and knowledge was (and still is) applied to the digital photography techniques resulting in very high quality prints.


Besides his work as a landscape photographer he loves to photograph the local people he encounters on his travels abroad. These portraits show another aspect of the countries he visits. His "travel" portraits have been compiled in a few portfolios.


Marnix is the author of a number of photo books. Besides the photographs and text he also takes care of the layout and pre-press. He publishes his books through Blurb.com.


Besides his activities as a photographer he is a well appreciated speaker on the subject of photography. As such he regularly gives lectures and workshops to the Flemish amateur photo community. His phototours to the nordic regions which he organises and leads can count on quite some interest and good feedback from the many participants.
