Testimonials & Raves
“When I look at Marcus Bell’s work, I think they are shot by a very romantic woman! What I am trying to say is, Marcus’ work is so moving, so passionate, so affectionate that you would not think a guy has shot them.
Marcus is one photographer whose work just stands out from the usual, it has it’s own signature and style which like Marcus himself is simply wonderful. I urge everyone out there to go and see his extraordinary work. As for me, I love the guy” Yervant
” What can be said about Marcus that hasn’t already been said a million times over? Marcus is an inspiration to the photographic world. He is more than a photographer; he is a story teller. Marcus has an uncanny ability to write a novel with a single image. With the combination of his photographic skills and his connection with his subject; his images bypass the eye and go straight to the heart. His images have set a standard for all. Folks, this is what photography is all about.” Parker J Pfister – USA
“ Marcus is driven by a passion for the art and craft of wedding photography. This passion and his undeniable talent make him one of the best wedding photographers in the world today.“ Jeff Ascough – UK
“When I first heard Marcus was doing a tour I immediately grabbed my calandar. Sure, his known for his passion, powerful imagery, inspiration, yada, yada, yada. However, To catch him in a seminar is an embarrassment of riches.
I had never seen Marcus speak before. I’ve spent time with him, drank with him, BSed about life, having twins, and of course photography and I was fully aware of his passion. However, I was truly blown away at the shear power of his work when I saw it in masses. He shared a ton of his work with powerful slideshows.
I expected great work. What I didn’t expect was how prolific he is. He showed entire weddings where the level of consistency was mindboggling. He showed why he’s considered one of the very best in the world because his moments are so real.
In addition to the “show and tell” part of his presentation, he shared VERY practical and very original marketing ideas that help his profit margins. He shared his workflow and his shortcuts that allow him to work more ON his business and not IN his business.
I drove 3 hours to catch him in Long Island. Lots of cool people. Well worth the trip. I’m honestly incorporating a couple of things in my business TODAY.” Cliff Mautner – Philadelphia USA

“Many times we’re so focused on giving of our talent and technical ability to our clients and to our peers that we can all lose a little bit of ourselves along the way when the business takes over. Thank you for the reminder that the most important thing to never lose is the compassion in generosity and the giving of genuine fellow feeling which makes our industry unique and truly special.” Nathan Johnston
“The insight and passion that you shared with us was so invaluable. You shared your strategies and spoke of how you operate your business. The sideshows were indeed powerful,inspirational, and most of all, motivational. Presentations like this remind me why I do what I do, and why I like it so much. Plus, I feel that my confidence is boosted more than ever – many things you taught can be instituted right now – and that will help my business grow and be successful. Thank you! “ Joe Rumore – New York USA

“ I can’t say enough about Marcus, truly inspiring. I’ve had the pleasure of seen Marcus speak twice. You simply can’t get enough. If you haven’t seen him, it’s a must. If you have, do it again. The power is simply so “REAL”. Thank you Marcus, it was a wonderful experience as always.” Christina McCarron
My wife and I just got home from the Pittsburgh seminar. What a refreshing, insprirational day it was. Marcus is as down-to-earth as they come. It was a long, information filled day, that didn’t seem long at all. We thoroughly enjoyed meeting Marcus and learned quite a bit. It’s definitely a MUST go for any photographer.
Thanks Marcus, and bravo for a job well done! Christopher Jamison
