Check out these great photos by Toronto based photographer Marcin Moka.
Marcin (who has been shooting for 7 years) specializes in “creative photojournalism” but does a fair bit of wedding photography as well.
We recently asked him how he got into photography in the first place and what his favourite places to shoot are:
I was lucky enough to have lived on the French Riviera while in University, which in my view is one of the most beautiful spots on earth. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a camera to capture the memories so when I came back to Canada, I picked up my first point & shoot camera. I immediately fell in love with photography and have been at it since.
If I had to pick my three favourite places where I’ve shot, they would be:
1. Manhattan’s Lower East Side – I love the graffiti, the grime and the endless details that you encounter in that dense urban area.
2. Old City of Jerusalem – the atmosphere, the history… the tension. It’s difficult encapsulating it all in photos, but it’s exhilarating to try.
3. The quaint, sleepy towns of South Western France – far from the droves of tourists, they have this romantic-nostalgic feel that’s hard to find elsewhere.
