Marc Koegel is an international award-winning photographer, educator, writer, and the director of Vancouver Photo Workshops LTD (www.vpworkshops.com).
Koegel’s black-and-white long-exposure landscapes, nudes, and architectural photographs have won numerous international awards and his work has been widely exhibited in Vancouver and internationally.
Born in Germany, Koegel first came to Canada in 1996 to earn an economics degree. He has been seriously involved with photography ever since he was given his father’s camera and darkroom setup at the age of twelve (yes, he fits this stereotype). Koegel has worked and studied with many internationally acclaimed photographers, including Joe McNally, Mary Ellen Mark, Greg Gorman, Arthur Meyerson, Jay Maisel, Ralph Gibson, David Hume Kennerly, and Jon Cone from Cone Editions Press.
In 2007, Koegel was commissioned to put together western Canada’s first one-year, full-time, fully accredited diploma program focusing on the latest digital photography technologies. Among Koegel’s keen interests are the creative and transitional techniques used to merge traditional darkroom with the latest digital processes. To create his fine-art photographs, Koegel works with both film and digital processes.
