My name is Marcel Cristocea and I am a fashion/people photographer based in Montreal.
I am originally from Constanta, a city on the Black Sea coast of Romania. I discovered photography at the age of 22. Initially, I was attracted to nature photography, but in time I discovered that photographing people was more rewarding to me. Ever since I was a child I was fascinated with meeting new people and listening to their stories. Slowly I started to follow this path and I moved from landscape to photographing people.
I believe great photography is a TEAM effort. It is all about the connection between the photographer and the people that take part in the photo session, even if it is just a simple portrait. Good chemistry will always shine through in the final photograph. It is very important for me to make the people I am photographing feel relaxed in front of the camera and have them show their natural expression.
My work has been published in Papercut Magazine, Fashionising.com, Joy (Romania), Miresici (Romania) , Beau Monde Mirese (Romania), Estela Magazine, Fantastics Magazine and many more.
