Lighting remains one of Marvin’s main areas of interest. He takes pride in being able to set up auxiliary lighting for any kind of setting or mood. Is the natural Michigan sunlight not providing that warm, glowing feeling? Or do you need edgy and punchy lighting for your studio portrait? From either end of the spectrum, Marvin has the technical expertise to nail the lighting you imagine.
In fact, Marvin prefers to simply take an excellent photo in the first place rather than rely heavily on editing. Although he loves a good old fashioned black and white photo, he wants it to look like you’re sitting right there, watching a sporting event or live band, or even just standing in the studio as a spectator.
And yes, he has a real studio! Studio M is approximately 1500 square feet, giving both you and Marvin the space to move around, get comfortable and be creative. This also comes as a huge advantage for winter photoshoots, since the weather in Michigan makes outdoor shoots possible only during certain times of the year.
