Bio: In 2012 Marko Marinkovic quit his corporate job to become a wedding photographer.

When he is not taking photos, he enjoys traveling. He particularly enjoys doing both at the same time.
„I do my best to shoot what it feels like, not what it looks like. Emotion and light“, Marko Marinkovic says. “These are my two main rules.” The Nikon shooter uses these to emphasize the story he’s telling with his photos, which lean toward candid documentary over posing and directing. Marinkovic looks at classic painters for inspiration, and edits for a slightly muted, pastel palette that gives his images a certain glow.
„I’m open, simple and constantly smiling guy with a beard. I love the sound of my yellow Telecaster, taste of a sushi, Monty Python jokes, click of a shutter and a feeling that an airplane take-off has. I miss my hair, pre ’00 music and can’t stand mosquitoes, umbrellas or software updates“, says Marko.
