Marion is an accomplished, award-winning photographer who divides her time between Canada and Portugal. She has lived and worked in Thailand and travelled with her camera to 41 countries in five continents. She has studied photography with well-known professional photographers in France, Italy, Morocco, Portugal, Canada, and Kenya.
Marion enjoys sharing her love of travel and photography. She's organized and led photography tours in Portugal since March 2014. We are pleased to have her as our North American liaison.
Her love for seascapes, landscapes, and architecture shows in the images she creates. Close-ups of everyday life and street photography are areas of special interest. Marion loves colour but also enjoys the tonal contrast, graphic qualities, and artistic interpretation in monochromatic images.
After taking the judging course from the Canadian Association for Photographic Art, Marion has judged at several camera club competitions. Her trained eye will help you think about exposure, composition, and what to include and exclude when creating your images. In recent years, she organized and led photowalks in the Vancouver area.
Marion has a curious mind and is always willing to explore and experiment with photography techniques. She’s engaging, encouraging, and happy to share her knowledge of photography. She’ll help you develop a more contemplative style of photography and take your images to the next level. During our tours, Marion will help you find images that stir your soul and create photographs in a more meaningful way.
