Welcome to the life of AriesEffects! I'm an Aries...and I love FX. Photo, Video, Special, Side, Adverse.....you name it!

I looooove the sound of the shutter. I love sharing my photos with friends and family. I love trying new techniques. Above and beyond all, I have a passion. If you don't enjoy what you do, change what you're doing.

I've learned a lot over time about lighting and how to get the exact look I’m going for. I remember being told years ago, " Practice, practice, practice!" It made sense, but I never really did it. I always wondered why my shots didn't look like I thought they should. Then low and behold, I started to PRACTICE......guess what?! HAHAHAHA, LMAO, yea that's right, I got a little better! I look back a few ears ago, and I thought I was awesome! I wasn't....I sucked! Even now, I'm not awesome. I'm sure I'll look back in another five or six years and wonder what the hell I was thinking. I constantly see photographers here on Flickr and elsewhere and wonder if I’ll ever reach that level of greatness. It's a constant reminder that "I" am "ME", and I should be happy doing what I do. It keeps me on my toes, striving not to become someone else, but to extract the inspiration I see in their work and to mold it into my ever growing passion and technique.


Work hard.....play hard!

Life's got me pretty busy right now. We've got two cats and two puppies. I work full time, while shooting on the side. I'm in the middle of my 365 , P90X, and trying to get the house manageable. There just aren't enough hours in the day! My life is definitely well documented!

Happy Flickring!

    "When I first stumbled onto Marcelle's photostream.....I noticed a guy sitting there dumbfounded and staring at a red light. As I began to read his storyline, I laughed so hard.....I cried!

    Marcelle is not only a talented photographer, and by that I mean his skills far surpass most on Flickr, but his ability to create character after character and such brilliant, elaborate story lines is truly remarkable!

    No one does what Marcelle does ~ he is a unique talent and I beg you as the viewer to spend some serious time here.......take a journey and be prepared to laugh until your gut splits!

    Oh yeah, and ....
    The man himself is one of the kindest and most sincere people on Flickr......I count it both a blessing and a joy to know him. ;-)"

    "Well, we all know he is a complete master of photography and controller of light. However, he is also an extremely generous person that has a sincere interest in helping the photographic community. As a new photographer, he could have easily brushed me off, but he engaged me with humor and respect and has helped me to become a better photographer. Meeting Marcelle here has reinvigorated me to PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE. Thanks for being a flickr friend and for being the person you are."

    "Marcelle is one of the most creative people on Flickr. His 365 is one of very favorites, because I truly never know what to expect. The time and effort he puts into each of his image is worth it, and it pays off. He is talented, and was making bad ass images even before he got a super fancy camera. :) I can't wait to see what he'll do next, or what kind of story his pictures will tell - but whatever it is, it will not only impress you but stick with you in your mind.

    Loveeee your work."
