I’m Marcus Norman, a photographer with a graphic design background, born in London, England, and now living just north of Chicago.


My passion for photography comes from both the technical aspect and the creative consideration that goes into creating unique images. It's what makes photography personal for me and it's why I take every assignment with complete commitment. I'm invested in every session to create images that are unique, personal, and expressive.


I love meeting and photographing people! My focus as a portrait photographer is to make everyone look their absolute best. Using direct and indirect coaching, I'll make your experience as comfortable as possible to better allow your true self to shine through.


With a deep appreciation for sustainability and our shared environment, I live a car-lite life, preferring to utilize my bicycle or public transportation as needed.
