Of rapidly growing international repute…. Marc Wainwright’s focus is on people, portraits, fashion, lingerie, nudes and social commentary.
He was brought up in the rolling green countryside of Gloucestershire, and since then has lived and worked all over the world.
His work is wide ranging and eclectic, et il’adore the random and a touch of fun and mild humour that goes with it.
He loves people. In fact he loves people of all shapes and sizes and backgrounds, and in whatever circumstances they find themselves in.
He specialises in taking edgy shots of people, and groups of people who are self evidently real characters, free and enjoying living.
For the most part he wants the images of them to be unposed. So they are, as they are …. however unsetelling that might be to some. He tries not over crop the context of their settings as for him this provides a sort of social commentary that tries to dig beneath the surface and challenges the boundaries of portraiture. This he holds dear to himself. In their turn his portraits have become very dear to a large number of my subjects; held quite precious, possibly because they seem to have an almost timeless quality. For the most part they are reasonably good or they are simply good fun. Whatever, they do live on.
As Marc say’s, “Rare the evanecsent echo, that eeks out existence in the palps of time”.
Experience - lots of commissions over the years, focussing mainly on Runway, Editorial, Fine Portraits, Fashion, Lingerie, Glamour/Artistic nude and more latterly edgy/sensual Boudoir work.
For example my photo used invite for the London Fashion Week's Closing Night Party at the Cuckoo Club http://www.thebuttonclub.com/events/LFW_Closing_Party_Cuckoo_Club/
Or for fashion events such as:

I've also been featuring in some blogs for example:
You can find some slightly more edgy stuff amongst the 50 or so shots at www.istudio.com/marcwphotography
And perhaps better still, you can get an idea of the vast range of my work at ...
where in excess of some 500 or so examples of my most recent work can be browsed.
Of late, I've also been exploring the Creative Artist in me, where my photographic material now helps form the basis for development of some major works of art.....et toujours je t'adore le random! ...and you can see some on my work at the Saatchi Gallery at http://www.saatchi-gallery.co.uk/yourgallery/artist_profile/M%20J+Wainright/27671.html
