Marcus is a commerical photographer specialising in portraits and reportage; as he says,
"if there are people, I want to do the photos"
Marcus was kindly supported by his fantastic team throughout the shoot:
James works as Marcus' assistant and he has known him for years, Marcus describes him as a good guy who he completely trusts and is completely reliable. James was also the only other guy on the set.
Beth is Marcus' other assistant who he describes as a terrific photographer in her own right, she is incredibly grounded and sensible.
Beth is a 3rd Year Graphic Design student from University of Gloucestershire specialising in social media and customer experience. She is a keen cook and has an obsession with skincare and make up.
"Working as Marcus' assistant on the shoot was a fantastic opportunity and I found it a really inspiring experience. The girls are so brave and I admire them all tremendously. I am so pleased with the finished result and I urge you ALL to go and buy a calendar!"
Make up artists:
Marcus brought in two of the best make up artists around - Bex and Marina.
Bex qualified as a make up artist from Stroud college in 2011, then stayed for another 3 years to gain qualifications in hairdressing, salon management and prosthetics.
"I really enjoyed my experience with the ladies - They were incredibly brave for being part of this calendar.
I felt like I could in some way relate as when I was 14 I lost all my hair to chemotherapy. I decided to ditch the wig and be proud of my baldness too!"
"Bex is amazing, she has such a talent and the ladies looked beautiful."
"I've known Marina for a good while and she is brilliant, we could not have done the shoot without her and Bex."
