Hi i’m Joaquin Marco, the one behind Jokinmarc.
I am 30 years old and I´m a professional musician and teacher from Basque Country, I play Double Bass. I studied classical music at the university of the Basque country. My interest in photography started a few years ago, testing techniques with a very old digital camera, but it wasn’t until august 2018 when I bought my first camera. With an Northern lights image I took one year after starting with photography, I was selected as one of the best northern lights photographer of 2020, being my work published in The Guardian, National Geographic and the BBC. Just two years after starting with photography y was shortlisted as finalist in the prestigious Sony World Photography Awards in the landscape category, in 2021. I think music has a lot of influence on my photography, when you play a piece of music you are looking for colors and feelings all the time, the sound and each chord sonority creates sensations that make you escape from the moment.
This is what I try to get across with my photography, in which I am highly influenced by fantasy illustrators, books, movies, and of course by music.
