Studio Manager

Hi, I’m Marc, Studio Manager and Lead Photographer. I am a creative creature who loves problem solving and always tries to bring fun, high-level energy to every shoot. I have been interested in art and photography for most of my life and love capturing a range of creative portraits. For me photography is a powerful way of expressing oneself and recording your view of the world. It encapsulates a split second in time that can never be retrieved and preserves those memories and ideals forever. They say to never work with pets and babies, but they are some of my favourite shoots as I enjoy the energy and the challenge.
Outside the studio I am often working on my own creative projects, spending time with friends, or relaxing with a good videogame.


My name is Marian (Maz). My colleagues say I am the Sales Guru at Viva photography. I have been in retail sales for 35 years and loving it; I’m not going anywhere!
Away from the workplace, you can find me pumping irons at my local gym and spending time with friends and family enjoying hot jazz and sipping on a smooth red wine.
Through extensive knowledge, honesty, and dedication I’m able to consistently achieve outstanding results to exceed my client’s expectations in creating unique pieces to last a lifetime which then become family heirlooms. My love of Art began when a was a small child watching my big brother capture images of   the family on his small Box Brownie. My parents were also Lovers of the Arts treating us to Musical Recitals and Art Exhibitions.


Hi, I am Siv, the “bookinator” booking consultant, customer service expert and the studio’s coffee making connoisseur. I am a hot-blooded and passionate Italian mother and nonna who knows everything. One of my passions is interacting with people from all walks of life and listening to their stories. Photography to me means recording my life story. It gives me an opportunity to look back when my children born, their achievements, family who aren’t with us anymore, and Lots of important moments in our lives. Because of this my favourite kind of shoot would be family shoots and especially Newborns
When I am not in the studio you will find me at home enjoying time with my family cooking up a storm for my kids and grandkids.
