About Marcus D. Porter Studios

Hey Everyone!

My name is Marcus D. Porter and I'm a Studio Portrait Photographer located in Memphis, TN. I'm also skilled in shooting videography while shooting weddings as another love of mine.

I'm a huge fan of learning and development. I love learning and I love teaching others. I decided to create this Patreon group because I get so many questions on what type of gear I use to how I shoot in certain situations. I've decided to start filming my online course series that will teach you how to shoot photography and videography. This is where I can provide one-on-one training on how to work basic camera functions like, basic ISO, Aperture, Shutter Speeds, Learning Off Camera Flash, Studio Shooting, marketing, or etc I also want to show behind the scenes footage that you may want to see me do.

***Just so you know, this membership also gives me time to launch my bigger online courses which will be coming soon! I wanted to test the market out and see who would be interested in investing in education at a very affordable low price. So get in now while you can! It won't always be this low since we are in beta!***

This group is for anyone of you who want more knowledge and access to me beyond my Facebook Education group. You can join that group by going to

Also, if you are located in the Memphis, TN area and would like to attend local trainings, workshops, or would like one on one training you can go to my education website for more information here at

Patreon allows me to create educational content while I work on providing online courses and workshops.

I will be providing workshops and more photowalks but you can always contact me for in person training! Also, if you have any questions, you an always ask the group here as well! Just let me know what questions you may have or what you would like to see me teach in the group.

I'll be providing bi-weekly content here for you on all things beginner photo and video.
