Nico Marques’ easy-going, yet highly focused approach to capturing images is shaped by his rigorous training in architecture and photography, as well as subsequent years of experience as a commercial and residential designer for leading architecture firms in Los Angeles. One day the idea of combining his passion for photography and architecture into one became obvious, and this journey as a documentarian storyteller has now completed its first decade.

Nico was invited to exhibit at the Venice Biennale in 2018 and 2020, and his work has been published worldwide, including Architectural Review, Architectural Record, CA Homes, DETAIL, DWELL, and Trends. He is presently working on two books, chasing that perfect light, and splitting his time between California and Portugal with his family.
