Marco Garcia, a Honolulu-based photographer, specializes in travel, portrait, and documentary photography. Clients include the New York Times, Conde Nast Traveler, Modern Luxury Magazine, Frommer's Guide Books. His various corporate clients include the Sony Corporation, Blue Planet Foundation, and the Hard Rock Café. Marco's work has taken him around the globe and off the beaten path in Hawaii. His assignments have had him hopping over lava on the Big Island to dodging drunk salarymen in Tokyo. In January 2005, Marco traveled to Banda Aceh, Indonesia where he captured the devastation of the Indian Ocean earthquake and subsequent tsunami that destroyed coastlines from Indonesia to parts of Africa. He returned six months later to Indonesia to photograph the rebuilding process. His documentation of Banda Aceh was showcased in a one-man show at the East West Center in Honolulu. The successful gallery show led to the publication of his first book titled “Hope for Renewal, Photographs from Indonesia after the tsunami,” which helped raise relief funds for tsunami victims globally. The East West Center, gallery show, and book gained fame internationally.
