Hello :)

 My name is Marieke Macklon and I am a full time freelance video director,  photographer, DoP and editor/colour-grader based between London and Chester. I also lead photo teams, provide and teach workshops and manage tours on occasion. 

I am heavily inspired by the music, cinematography and fashion of the 1960s and 70's as well as travel and outdoor documentary film making ,which I portray regularly in my client and personal work,  by using a lot of variation of light, textures, styles, composition and colour. 

Self taught since 2009, I've been professionally photographing and filming bands and artists in small music venues to on-stage in front of tens of thousands of people at a festival,  from snapping artists press shots to their album covers and capturing special backstage/on-stage moments  to directing/film/producing their music videos. 

I am always aiming and working towards elevating, growing and expanding my portfolio  and my clients work/projects.  Especially when I'm able to experiment, adapt,  apply and execute new, unique and unusual ways to capture a photo, video or scene. 

A bit of a cliché here but I very much enjoy challenging myself, for example : Able to push myself and the team/crew  to where it allows myself and or crew to think outside of the box and create work that aligns well with the client, that meets the brief, but adds a touch of pizzazz.
