Reto Marek is a passionate semi-pro photographer based in Lucerne Switzerland. Beside his job as engineer he strives to capture the beauty of the natural world as well as the decisive moment.

He began to take pictures years ago and improved his skills by reading book after book about photography.
In 2013 he joined the three months long summer intensive career training at rocky mountain school of photography. Besides technical skills the course provided him deep knowledge of the different fields of photography – from portraiture, wedding, documentary, landscape and so on up to studio and on location lighting.

Reto’s travel has taken him through winters in Nepal and Ladakh, through summers in Mongolia, Iceland and south america. Most of the time he traveled by bicycle because this mean of transport allows him to stop wherever he wants – a stop either to take pictures or interact with the locals.
