Marco Ibanez is a published, multi award-winner photographer and educator. His work is influenced by his love of 17th century master painters, and by the use of light to create sensual, moody, dramatic images. A few years ago a life-altering experience pushed him to focus more on the things he loved and since then photography has become a central part of his life.
Connecting with other people is what Marco loves more about his job. He believes everybody is somehow connected to each other, and that happiness is found in helping others so he enjoys sharing knowledge and ideas with fellow photographers. “We make a living by what we get, we get a life by what we give” he likes to say.
Marco lives in the Washington DC metro area but may find him frequently traveling around the world for shooting opportunities
