Marco Catini: Photographer, Visual Storyteller.

About Marco Catini

Born to Italian parents in the German speaking part of Switzerland, Marco grew up bilingual German and Italian. At school he was taught French and then English. In his youth he played soccer with more passion than talent, but he never forgot to have fun with his teammates.


In his teens Marco finally picked up a camera. He took a lot of photos, but lacked proper understanding of film photography and vision, thus the first love affair with photography was short lived. 


After achieving a degree in business administration Marco completed 

mandatory military service as a paramedic. He then gained experience in the advertising industry as an account director, first on the client side and then at advertising agencies. He was in charge of  budget and timelines and worked closely with the creative departments. During these years he developed his eye for visual composition and storytelling, and an understanding that without constant hard work any creative output would be mediocre at best.


In 2001 Marco came to the United States. He worked at a YMCA in positions as different as Front Desk Representative, Staff
