About me

Professional Photographer in Majorca

Marcos Molina (Palma de Majorca, 1965).

Vocational artist and photographer specialized in nature landscape.


I started practicing photography at the age of 15, inspired by the natural beauty of Majorca. The regular practice of collective hiking helps me to get acquainted with the land and with the rhythms of nature, initiating the discovery of high scenic value locations. Gradually, driven by my growing creative restlessness, I abandon hiking to devote myself exclusively to solo photography. The decades of the 80s, 90s and 2000s represent a slow and progressive learning curve of the technique and the complex mechanism of ambient light and local weather, as well as its treatment. After the initial stage of mere exploration, the natural concern of image planning arises. With the means at my disposal, I undertake multiple specialized activities such as caving, canoeing, freediving, climbing, overnight stays in the open air and piloted flights in order to push limits once again to expand my creative sphere. The perseverance, discipline and spirit of improvement have allowed me to acquire a solid experience over the last 35 years, materialized in an extensive unique photographic collection of the natural landscape of Majorca and of the Sierra de Tramuntana in particular, available in limited edition fine prints.


I have published images in multiple travel magazines and have collaborated in a variety of editorial works and advertising campaigns such as the Unesco Candidacy for the Sierra de Tramuntana in 2011. In 2016 I presented Llums de Tramuntana, a luxury edition self-published book, dispatching 900 copies in the first quarter. The same year I was awarded first prize at the Glanzlichter international nature photography competition in Germany, in the landscape category.


Professional photographer since 2010, currently expanding horizons in commercial initiatives, such as the creation of content for architecture and nautical business as well as long-term construction timelapse video production.

Member of AEFONA (Spanish Association of Nature Photographers) and AFONIB (Balearic Islands Association of Nature Photographers).
