Marcus Bastel is a London-based photographer with a fine art background. He studied at Sheffield Hallam University followed by the Rijksakademie in Amsterdam.
Whilst his early work focused on multimedia, incorporating photography and film, for the last 20 years, he has focused solely on photography, developing his own style, striking a balance between fine art and documentary photography. His work has been exhibited internationally.
He has travelled through North America for various projects, including Faces of Mustang. Other recent projects include an urban street photography collaboration for an architecture column and an ongoing project documenting a 7th-generation family business of undertakers.
It is people and their stories, that inspire his work. He loves passing on his knowledge about all aspects of photography and cultivating a relaxed and creative classroom atmosphere.
