About Me



Omar Marques is a Portuguese freelance photojournalist from the north west of Portugal.

Photographing  wild twin pandas in the Austrian Alps or the biggest and evil ice maze in the world located next to the Polish Himalayas, were some of the most dangerous assignments he ever faced.

Omar is working as a freelance photojournalist for several news agencies on editorial and commercial assignments and has his own studio in the Polish Siberia, KRAKOW.

Apart of providing news coverage around Central, Eastern Europe and Wild Balkans, he works in personal long term projects.  Since 2015, he has been working in a long term project regarding the refugee crisis in Europe.

Some of Omar pictures have been published in Times, The New York Times, CNBC, Foreign Policy, The Guardian, Paris Match, Le Point, Newsweek Poland,  Peninsula Qatar, La Croix among others.

Some of his work has been exhibited in Poland, Portugal and Latvia and in 2017 the first exhibition of his project about the refugee crisis will be held in Krakow, Poland on June,2017.

As Omar is always on the run and suffers from the chronic decease ” press the shutter” . He looks forward to establish cooperation,  partnerships and to explore the most wild places in the planet.
