Photographer Marc Collins was born in Berlin and discovered his great passion for photography at the age of 22.
As an autodidact, he started off with fashion photographs, which allowed him to learn all about working with light and camera techniques. Collins works with traditional analog and digital photography.
From an early stage, he had a passion for glamour and fine art photography.
Always in search of the natural sensuality of his models, he developed a style and an attitude of his own. When shooting his independent work, he prefers spontaneity, hardly ever planning precise settings and poses. The focus is always on capturing the mood and the charisma of the model.
Collins prefers to work on location. His favourite locations are the beaches of the Caribbean, Brazil and the Seychelles. As a result of the interaction of daylight and environment, his photographs evoke a natural and captivating mood.
Today he photographs commercials, glamour, fashion, lingerie, advertising, catalog, editorial photography, swimsuits and fine art nudes.
In 2008 he started producing and directing TV commercials, image films and music videos.
