About

 
I’m Marie – a photographer, photo editor and cinemagraph artist currently based in Cardiff in the UK. I love capturing beautiful images, exploring the world and creating enchanting cinemagraphs. I shoot with a Canon 5d3 and my favourite prime lenses (85mm & 35mm), using Adobe Lightroom and Photoshop for post-production and retouching.

I studied photographic arts at university in Swansea, always feeling most inspired when by the sea. Since graduating in 2013, I spent a summer photographing and designing for a travel guide in France, discovered the most breathtaking beaches, volcanoes and glaciers whilst travelling around Australia and New Zealand, spent three seasons shooting weddings, events and retreats on the stunning Spanish island of Ibiza, and have created lots of magical cinemagraphs for clients including Nissan and The Ad Council.

I have had my work exhibited in the Saatchi Gallery as one of the shortlisted artists for the Google+ Motion Photography Prize, in the Old Truman Brewery as part of the London Free Range Art & Design show, and in Florida as part of Scope Art Miami. I was also an Accor Hotels Three Cities Travel-Blogger finalist and shortlisted for the RTWE Photo-Blogger award.

To enquire about a photo shoot, wedding photography or to discuss a collaboration idea, feel free to get in touch via email and I’ll get back to you as soon as possible.

"Oh my Lord Marie I just looked at the images. They are literally beautiful. I am thrilled, exactly what I had imagined. You are so clever, thank you very very much - I love them."

"Marie and Abby were recommended to shoot the work in the studio. They set up the lighting, backdrops and shot 35 students work. This was a massive task for any photographer with an incredibly tight time schedule over one day. They both rose to the challenge and I was incredibly impressed with how professional and organised they were. They were great communicators, very helpful and supportive - a pleasure to work with. They delivered on time and presented the images exactly to our specification making very good image choices for print. I felt like they really enjoyed it which helped me to direct the shoot throughout the day. The images are so strong we are using them to promote the new pathway as marketing material."

"Marie's work delivered exactly what we had in our minds but couldn't express. The photos were exceptional and will no doubt enhance our marketing in the coming year. The shoot was fun and relaxed and we were able to collaborate with her to create the best shots possible. All in all we couldn't be happier!"

"Over the summer in Ibiza I have had the luck of having amazing post production help. Marie is SUPER. She is an amazing photographer, with a real eye for colour, composition and all things pretty! Thank you so much Marie for all the editing, organising, second shooting and enthusiasm when you saw something that was just lovely."

“Marie did the photography, album artwork and website design for my debut EP. She followed me around the country for three separate photo shoots and was in regular contact with me in between to share materials and ideas. She has been absolutely phenomenal to work with, and her creativity and professionalism are second to none. She was attentive and spent a lot of time establishing exactly what I wanted, and was then full of exciting ideas which were clearly centred on the brief I had given her at the start. During the shoots, she made me feel completely comfortable when at times I was out of my depth. She delivered all of the work ahead of time and to a fantastic standard, and has since been extremely supportive and helpful with any queries I’ve had, as well as checking that everything is running smoothly. I very much hope to work with Marie again on my upcoming releases, and cannot recommend her and thank her enough!”

“Marie's photo editing is not only skilled but is a must for any photographer inundated by image processing. Reliable, timely and communicative, she takes care to ensure she fully understands my requirements both in terms of my personal style and preferences, and each individual edit. She always brings out the best in every image. If you need to unchain yourself from your computer giving you more time to shoot and progress your business, along with creating a better work-life balance, then I would highly recommend you get in touch with Marie. Her service is priceless!”

- Adam Sendall Photography
“Not only is Marie a talented fine art photographer, she has a creative passion for editing and never fails to deliver. I started using Marie’s services last year and have never been disappointed, not only did she match my editing style, she actually enhanced it. As a full time wedding photographer this is a huge weight off my shoulders knowing I can finally trust someone with my images. I can’t rate her highly enough and look forward to continuing working together.”

We hope she has the chance to photograph many more weddings in the future."

"Marie has done a fantastic job handling artwork for project “Sela-Sela” Official Song of the Africa Football Cup of Nations, South Africa 2013. She was able to work with our ideas and requests as well as take into account the market appeal in the various regions of promotion. We also appreciated her thoroughness and punctuality under sometimes high-pressure situations with constantly changing needs and demands. Throughout this project she has been consistent in providing proofs, drafts, and questions to better accommodate our needs and objectives. She has provided us materials for online and print work, each of the materials having certain specifications for mass print and/or online publication. We are very pleased with Marie’s work as it is unique and beautiful. She is able to easily understand our needs and take the project to the next level in terms of visual appeal and intrigue. In fact, she is working on my next project right now!"
