Marcus Dupuis has been looking at the world through the view finder of a camera since he was 15. That old Pentax K1000 was one of the classic mechanical wonders of photographic history. He is an accomplished traveler having spent many years exploring the different corners of our world. He has been a successful businessman and retailer and he is an Artist.
Marcus Dupuis is an Artist with two sides. The images in his photography convey the beautiful wonder of life and all its facets. The other side is a Singer/Songwriter who conveys the same through melody and rhythm. He sometimes puts both together in a show with images changing behind him on stage while he performs.

Marcus graduated from the photography program at Selkirk College near Nelson BC. He opened and operated a stock photography agency called Profile Photographic. He has been published in many publications through the years. That was back in the days when Kodachrome was king of magazine quality printing. His portfolio was submitted by request to National Geographic in 1989. But having no grey hair back then, he was a long way from getting a position with the prestigious organization. He continued to develop his own angle of view and ran Profile Photographic for a few more years.
After a break from photography to let the transition evolve from film to digital, Marcus re-entered the world of capturing images. "The digital capture technology has developed to a point that is worthy and in fact capable of so much more. I was drawn back in! When I am introduced to anything interesting, my initial thought is how to capture it on censor!? I pride myself in capturing original images that are not altered. I create abstract visions in the camera. What you see is what I got. ”
Now living in Canmore, Alberta in the Canadian Rockies, next to Banff National Park; He is surrounded by an inspiring environment. He is working towards getting all of his photographic work catalogued and exhibited. A book is also in the making. Poetry and short stories matched to images. The future is definitely a RAW image.
