About Me

A little bit of history

MarkoArt has been a part of my life as long as I can remember. Both of my parents were skilled painters. For a long time sketching and painting was my favorite medium — that is until I discovered photography.

My first camera was borrowed. It was the Pentax ME II Super. A well built film camera that belonged to my roommate. He was kind enough to allow me to use it during our road trip to the west coast. This was a very important moment in my life, as I not only discovered a passion for photography but also the desire to travel and explore.

It has been several years since I’ve developed a roll of film. In that time I have been fortunate to have had the opportunity to hike thousands of trails through the Canadian Rockies and travel through the Americas, Asia and The Middle East. I’ve tried to capture these experiences and feelings through the lens and the digital darkroom. This website along with the linked social media is my way of sharing these experiences.
