Meet West LA Wedding & Portrait Photographer: Marcus Anthony

Today we’d like to introduce you to Marcus Anthony.

Marcus, please share your story with us. How did you get to where you are today?
Photography has always been a hobby of mine since I was 13. I’ve always owned a camera ever since digital became affordable. But it wasn’t until my mid-20s that I decided to do pursue it as a profession. I was in Las Vegas for a friend’s 30th b-day and we walked into an art gallery in Caesar’s Palace. On the wall was a HUGE photograph of a male lion leaping over a dried creek bed. It was black and white and it was beautiful. I was inspired. The next day I bought a 5D Mark III and haven’t looked back. That was in 2013. It’s 2016 and I have a thriving business that I can’t wait to wake up every day and work at.

Has it been a smooth road?
It’s been a surprisingly smooth road I’m embarrassed to say. Don’t get me wrong, it’s physically and mentally exhausting shooting a 13-hour wedding. There are even multi-day weddings in some cultures. Sometimes it’s a struggle to remember to drink water, take a break to eat, etc. But it’s always worth it. Always.

What were you like growing up?
Introverted with a huge interest in yo-yos. I was #6 in the world back to back years in 2002 and 2003: http://www.worldyoyocontest.com/2002worlds/aascores.html

Is there a specific memory from when you were younger that you really miss?
Filling our entire backyard with mud and having mud fights.

What are your plans for the future?
I plan on owning a luxury wedding venue in the Colorado mountains and being the top wedding photographer in the world. I’m starting an educational website for beginning wedding photographers: www.weddingphotographeracademy.com, and I also plan on opening a boutique portrait studio with a heavy emphasis on fashion
