Michelle Marshall

Portrait photographer

Originally from France, Michelle graduated from the University of Derby under the creative lead of influential practitioners such as John X Berger, John Blakemore and Richard Sadler to name a few.

Michelle works and lives in London. Her work mainly revolves around portrait and kids fashion photography, with assignments ranging from commercial and fashion to editorials and commissions. Her style of photography favours the candid over the contrived, and she mostly works with natural light. She is also drawn to the powerful stillness found in everyday scenes and in nature in its many manifestations.

Michelle is currently working on a long-term project documenting the incidence of the MC1R gene variant responsible for red hair and freckles, particularly amongst black/mixed-race individuals of all ages.
