I'm Marcus Macaulay a graphic designing photographer from Leeds, West Yorkshire. I'm married with three children, two dogs and a horse. I've worked as a designer for nearly 30 years, though I did have a five-year spell as the licensee/manager of a nightclub in the mid 90's. One of my first jobs was cold selling advertising for the Auto Trader paper. Along with my nightclub experience I feel it gives me an advantage in my work. I understand sales and promotion applying this knowledge when designing. I have a lot of experience in publishing having worked on 100's of magazines. I also published my own magazine in the early 90's. As a photographer I have an eye for what works well in design and when taking the photographs I'm always thinking how it will layout.

Google accreditation in digital marketing and photography.
With a good knowledge of web development I have Google accreditation in digital marketing and photography. I understand how to get the best out of social media and search engine optimisation. I build visual websites though I'm not a coder so don't tend to work on large complicated sites.
I work quickly and efficiently always sticking to my deadlines. My working practice is often adopted by my client as it improves the production time.
I keep up to date with the latest technology, software and techniques. Most recently working on creating images for virtual reality which can be seen in my portfolio. I also dabble with 3d work, scanning, printing and rendering.
You'll find me very easy to work with if you are organised and value the service I'm providing. I work hard and I like to have a friendly working relationship with my clients

Photographing Sculpture
I have a real passion for sculpture and I'm very lucky to live near one of the best places in the world to see it, the Yorkshire Sculpture Park. When I not busy working on magazines or out on a shoot I can usually be found wondering around photographing sculpture of some sort. I have a website where I try to collect it all together at www.theartaroundus.co.uk but time is short and there's bills to pay 😊...
Architectural details of Leeds
Below is a book I published with photographs of the amazing architectural details of the historic building around Leeds. I hope to improving on this by writing more about the buildings and history.
