"I learned this, at least, by my experiment; that if one advances confidently in the direction of his dreams, and endeavors to live the life which he has imagined, he will meet with a success unexpected in common hours" -Henry David Thoreau

Marcus Swanson - Photographer

“I don’t know if there’s anything you can love that doesn’t have some application somewhere. The love, the passion and the inspiration...these are the indicators that, hey, this is your path.”


How do we know we’ve found something we love? It resonates on a cellular level. It’s not a conscious choice, or something we have to figure out. It’s just something you feel

This is behind Marcus’s love of photography, and just one small aspect of what makes one of Portland’s top photographers a very special guest.
