Bio - Back2Basics Photography

My name is Angel H Marchini. I am based in Toronto, Canada. I'm a professional photographer specializing in live music, sports, events, lifestyle and portrait photography. I freelance for several local publications such as Aesthetics Magazine, AMBY, Live In Limbo and Danger Canadian Content.

I also work with News wire agencies such as Zuma Press and Citypress24My photographs have been published in NewsWeek.

I have always had a passion for photography. To help fuel this passion, I started photographing everything that crossed my path. I started taking voluntarily photography assignments to gain experience.

It was during a chance meeting with notable Toronto based photographer, Bobby Singh of, that I became inspired to explore a photographic journey of my own. 

During this journey, I had the luck to count as my mentor the amazing Igor Vidyashev from RockExposure. His advice and mentoring helped elevate the quality of the work I produce.

I love photography. I love music. I can not reconcile one without the other. I happily undertake all other kinds of projects but it is in the fusion of music and photography that I excel the most. There is no feeling like the one experienced when expressing though an image the emotions that the music you are hearing stirs in you.

My years of work covering local acts/events from small venues all the way to macro festivals, have provided me with invaluable experience in all kind of environments and situations.

I understand how a picture can convey more meaning than words are able to. I possess excellent technical skills, using digital and non-digital cameras and industry-standard software such as Photoshop and Lightroom.

I am highly creative and artistic and my excellent eye can be demonstrated with my work. I always meet deadlines, no matter how tight, and I am very organized.

I am a member of the Canadian Association of Journalists as well as the NPPA (National Press Photographers Association).

I am available for commercial and editorial assignments worldwide. Contact me if you have any questions regarding my work, to discuss rates and/or your photography needs. You can reach me by e-mail at or if you prefer via cellphone, at +1 416-270-7175.
