Behind the Scenes Look with Photographer Marcus Lewis

Time to Go

Time to Go

You can see the world a million different ways from the same place. This is no exception. I try to go out, even if it’s to the same place, and find new perspectives, closer, wider, it doesn’t matter. The editing process helps a great deal too.

Where’s your favorite place to shoot?

Open Rooftop Season

Open Rooftop Season

Early morning wakeup for sunrise, aren’t amazing. But, the colors and views when you get to your location are. I took my butt up to the Penthouse floor of my cousin’s building to see if I could access the rooftop. Luckily the building was awesome enough to not lock the door at the top of the stairs. I was able to spend a good amount of time up there before the sun fully rose and ruined my shots.

Final Staircase

Final Staircase

Getting lost in any city is just about the most fun you can have. There’s adventures everywhere, and you’re not tied down to any type of plan or schedule. This is how I found, Fulton Station near the World Trade Center. I don’t commute anywhere, so this is definitely an awesome find for me. I’ve seen in many times while flicking through Instagram, but never got the chance to visit until now.

Brooklyn Bridge Love

Brooklyn Bridge Love

Here’s another section of the Brooklyn love locks. Unfortunately you wont be able to see these any longer. They were removed, I believe due to weight issues. That might be why all the bridges around the world have decided to remove their love locks. I suppose you don’t really need the locks to claim your love right?

Brooklyn Underground

Brooklyn Underground

Met up with a friend (@ethanledley) to go explore Brooklyn. It was a great time since I’ve never gone to shoot any underground photos before. We found this one image at the end of the night after the last train stop.

A great experience everyone should have.

Never Locked Away

Never Locked Away

There used to be this “photo-hole” framing the streets of Chinatown, but has recently been closed up (wish it was still there!). But, anyways, this spot is still a great place to view Chinatown as well as an incredible view of the Manhattan cityscape, right above the FDR Drive. It’s such a peaceful walk across the bridges.

Help Us!

Help Us!

On an awesome solo photowalk I ran into a fellow instagrammer (@vanillanthrax) who took me to some fun new places in Manhattan to take some shots. We were able to play around with a few different types of shots that helped me open up what I look for in an image. It’s fun collaborating with like-minded people.

Turn on the LIght

Turn on the LIght

Looking around the front yard I decided to get a little up close and personal with nature. It’s always a challenge to step out your front door and restrict yourself to a radius of about 20 feet for a photo. But I accepted my own challenge and had some fun with a flashlight and dandelion.

Phoenix of Manhattan

Phoenix of Manhattan

Suppose you can say this shot was on my “bucket list.” A shot we’ve all seen millions of times. It’s pretty easy to find (Right in Dumbo Brooklyn along the pier), but 100% doesn’t matter how many are out there. This one is mine! Allll mine!

I’ll need to start making an actual bucket list and start some amazing adventures.

Check the Gotham version.

Purple Nights

Purple Nights

Turning the corner during my photo walk through downtown Montreal, I see this building reminding me of a Tron Recognizer vehicle. I was loving the colors the clouds were picking up. It became such a peaceful walk after this.
