Marcus Adams is an award-winning documentary and travel photographer based near Wellington, New Zealand.
Marcus’ love of photography started early. At school he was fortunate enough to have an enthusiastic photography teacher and access to a dark room. He’s honed his photography skills over the years having worked with a number of talented photographers including Karl Grobl with Jim Cline Photo Tours. Marcus has also attended workshops led by Magnum photographers Eli Reed, Ian Berry and Chris Steele-Perkins.
In 2005, Marcus founded Travelling Light Photography. Since then he’s been busy developing and leading custom-made, small group tours around New Zealand and Australasia. When not busy running his photography tours business Marcus also loves to travel and learn more about the world’s people and places through his camera lens.
Marcus is a member of the Advertising & Illustrative Photographers Association. He is a registered freelance photographer for the New York Times and has shot for many tourism businesses and other corporates. He particularly enjoys his work with humanitarian organizations – and helping them to promote their cause-related activities across the world and can count the Halo Trust, Oxfam and NZ Aid as clients.
