making at least one person smile every day

What has been making
you smile lately?

A question I constantly ask myself
Because I consider a smile is much deeper than just the physical action
More importantly, a smile can open your world up to endless possibilities

Strangers Today | Friends Tomorrow

All it takes is a simple “Hi…”

On a personal journey to connect
Connecting with every ounce of my soul
Learning from incredible people
Living a life I can be proud of

Come join me and have some fun

Hi, the name is Marcus Lewis, if you haven’t gathered already
Welcome to my fun photography world

I would love for you to join the adventure!

I’m an ’86 baby, who doesn’t actually know what he’s doing with a camera, maybe…
But I do loves to take pictures anyways

More importantly I loves to get to know YOU
The YOU people rarely get to see

Spending hours laughing and joking while shooting for five minutes is a growing motto of mine.
A goal of mine is to have you forget we are on a shoot while still capturing your true essence in every picture.

If we don’t leave as friends at the end of our shoot, I must have done something wrong

…but seriously, come play with me. Lets create some amazing photos together

    • The Photo Story

      I had my first taste of photography back in high school. Watching friends play with film photography

      But, photography was definitely not something that clicked in my head yet

      A taste is a taste though…
      But a seed was planted even though I did not know it yet

      Later down the road, I still did not grasp the art of it all … “what is being creative?” Questioning it all!

      But I took those photography classes in college hoping to change my perspective…
      I definitely ended up learning a bit about the technical aspects of things.

      The seed started to grow into a small hobby

      A few years later, I picked up landscapes and nature photography.

      It was an outlet to escape my computer and avoiding life.
      I dove deeper into the technical side of photography.
      A lot of the things I learned in college started coming back to me.
      Along side a few 100 hours of YouTube tutorials… I was a mad genius.

      Although I was able to take decent images…
      There was a significant lack of meaning or storytelling to my work.

      A picture is only a picture until it means something to you

      The practice has definitely paid off
      The constant self critiquing
      Pushing myself to keep expanding my comfort zones

      Now…
      It all makes a bit more sense

      This is where YOU came in…

      YOU are the reason my photography as well as myself have developed into what we are today
      YOU are the reason I write the way I do
      YOU are the reason I think the way I do

      and I thank YOU…

      ** A love note to YOU**
      ** A love note to myself**

      Come be part of my story

  • Front-end Web Development - varietystudios

    • I am also the web development half of Variety Studios (VS). CEO, WordPress Consultant, magic man … you get the idea.

      We are a creative design studio, specializing in design and web development

      Founded back in ’09, with Randy Hadzor.

      With a background in graphic design, I took on the task of teaching myself HTML, CSS, and jQuery. Over time being good enough to be a bit dangerous with coding.

      I mastered the art of saying yes to everything in order to make forward progress in developing websites. Picking up new gigs here and there, learning as much as I could.

      It became a passion of mine.

      I built a few blogs to try my hand at some type of routine as well as learn how to code for WordPress. It was such a fun learning curve.

      Smething surprising ended up happening. I started making enough waves to be seen by a few digital marketing agencies. Things started to grow and my passion for coding started me down an incredible path.

      Now we work with several marketing agencies, a few small and large businesses. We set out to create unique branding and website solutions allowing each client to broaden their online presence as a company.

      If they have some overflow of work, we are definitely here to help. Feel free to visit our website for more information and to get samples of our work.

      The sky’s the limit, lets make your ideas a reality!
