Hello and welcome here!

A little about me:

Marlis_by_Tegan_McMartin011I grew up in southwest Saskatchewan.  I went to college in Winnipeg, lived in Nova Scotia for a bit, hopped across the country to the We(s)t Coast and I’m now back in Winnipeg.  I am drawn to wide open spaces, whether it’s a prairie sky or open ocean – love it.

When I was young, my Dad took lots of pictures.  There was a separate crisper in the fridge for film!  He gave me my first SLR – a Pentax Spotmatic – when I was grade 9. I was hooked.

As I grew up, I wanted to make photography my everyday.  I worked in photolabs and camera stores.  I studied at North Island College on Vancouver Island and worked with professional photographers there before moving to Vancouver.

Vancouver is where I started Imaging by Marlis in 2009.  Since 2014 and based in Winnipeg, Imaging by Marlis became Marlis Funk Photography.

My images are about connecting. I want to get to know you.  I love to create portraits and bring out the stories in the images.

I’d love to meet at talk about our next photo session!  Say Hello to get started.
