Roger Carlsen is one of Markham’s most provocative and prolific photographers. After more than 20 years in the business, he continues to expand his creative boundaries and carries his audience along for the journey. Bound with endless energy, Carlsen embarks on every shoot with an unbridled enthusiasm, which brings out, in his words, “the magical qualities of my subjects.”

Carlsen specializes in portrait, wedding, fashion and editorial photography. On location or in-studio, his approach to each genre is the same hands-on, innovative style that is found in every photograph. He uses the personality or character of his subjects, the environment and props to create something visually stimulating.

From CD covers to bibles, Carlsen’s diverse portfolio reflects a creative talent that has attracted a long, impressive list of satisfied, and yes, diverse clients. Named “Favourite Photographer” in a Toronto area newspaper’s Readers’ Poll for four years running, Carlsen’s career is not slowing down any time soon. Indeed, Roger Carlsen will be putting his vision into print for many years to come. His creative journey rolls on... "Markham's Photographer"
