Marcus Ohlsson, born 1979 in Sweden and living in NYC. Likes Museums and vintage photography. Collector and enthusiast of Leica cameras and Calder mobiles.
In order to pursue his love for photography, Marcus left high school to enrol at a photo school. He then spent six years assisting Swedish top photographers Camilla Åkrans and Mikael Jansson before kick starting his own career in 2005.
Marcus is fond of working with natural light and on location. This results in sensual, beautiful and often dreamlike photography with a great sense of presence. He offers his models a great deal of freedom in front of the camera and seems to have been gifted with the ability to capture uniqueness in each moment. His passion for fashion is clear.
Marcus is always busy and highly creative and has a number of editorial clients, such as Vogue Japan, Harper´s Bazaar, Bon and Vogue China. Among his commercial assignments are H&M, Sisley, Marc O’Polo, L’Oréal, Clinique, Acne, Nike and Wella.
In 2009 Marcus won the award for Fashion Photographer of the year at the Swedish Elle Awards.
