Daniel Marcion is a Fashion and Fine Art photographer based in the island of Saint Lucia but travels frequently to the US to participate in photography workshops, courses & personal projects. His work has been described as edgy, glamorous and very editorial flavored together with his artistic background. It is his goal to explore the qualities that make up a perfect image so he can get it right every time.
As a self-taught graphic artist he made the decision to pursue a photography career in 2007 which can be described as a fun but very awarding Journey. He invested in his first camera, an Olympus E620, a few lenses and embarked on a mission to be one of the best at his profession. He has since worked his way up into pro gear soon after completing portraiture, studio lighting courses and workshops in New York where he honed in his technical skills in photography. What evolved most from the experience, was learning to direct and communicate efficiently with his subjects resulting in him specializing in editorial fashion, beauty and portrait photography.
It is an amazing feeling to capture and immortalize in a frame an object, event or emotion which would be otherwise lost in a fleeting moment. He is always seeking new avenues in which to express himself and test his skill since he believes that there is always room for improvement. He has come a long way in his technique over the years owed to hard work, persistence, his best friend who is continually motivation him and to his habit of always comparing his photography work to all the amazing photographers out there.
His unique creole brand name “BELLE PORTWE” (meaning beautiful picture) is one which is highly commended on and loved by fans especially on Facebook. He is now pushing the marketing trend of his photography name to where he can be recognized after his brand as MR. BELLE PORTWE; Fashion & Fine Art Photographer.
