About Marcos Borges

Marcos Borges


Brazilian photographer currently based in Denmark and active internationally. Self-taught in photography, graduated in journalism and in graphic design.

Born in Rio and a citizen of the world. Lived in South Africa, Switzerland, Germany and now made my definitive stop in Denmark.

I am interested in bookings and campaigns both local and abroad.


Over the years, Marcos has become a trusted friend. Not only did he take portraits of me, but also of my friends. There simply is no other person I would choose over his art work.

Usually being photographed brings out the worst of me: I feel awkward, self conscious and silly. Not with Marcos Borges, though. He managed to make me feel comfortable while he photographed me during a whole day of activities in Odense when I received the Hans Christian Andersen Award. Best of all, his pictures were beautiful.
