Please meet , Marcus Paladino

"I grew up on Vancouver Island (Canada) and now live on its western shores in Tofino. I admire the power of the area and the effect it has on the people who call this place home. I, however, am not quite ready to do the same. I still love to travel and experience beauty in all its worldly forms. That’s probably why I’m not comfortable labelling myself. I take photos of surfing, but I’m not just a surf photographer. I draw inspiration from other fields into my work in the hope of it not becoming labelled. Whether it’s people, places or passions, I want simple descriptions like “surf photo” or “nature shot” to fall short. I think that’s when my work becomes art."
