Photography Portfolios


Marnie Recker is a photographer and painter living on the west coast of Vancouver Island, Canada. The open ocean and deep rainforests is a great source of inspiration for her creative life. She moved to Tofino over 20 years ago and has been working as a professional photographer for the past 10 years, creating time capsules of people, weddings and nature.

Her creativity has turned towards painting with the intention of expressing something that her photographs only touch upon. Whereas a photograph can be captured in a fraction of a second, a painting is a long process of learning, layering, and letting go. Her interest in culture, history and social justice had her pursue a BA in Anthropology from the University of BC and recently she completed a graduate degree in clinical art therapy. She deeply values how art is medicine for the soul. She believes everyone is an artist and to come back to one’s creativity and imagination is the most healing thing we can do.
