My name is Marcus, I'm 54 years old, married, with two grown kids, living near Nuremberg, Germany. Working a demanding daytime job as Mergers & Acquisitions Consultant, photography is my passion, a hobby that I can easily take along when traveling the world on business or with my family. I'm fully self taught, the Internet is such a great place to learn everything about photography and a source of constant inspiration (thanks to all who are sharing their work and their knowledge). I also read a lot of photography books and magazines. Besides photography itself I'm also very much invested in post production and photographic gear and gadgets.
