ABOUT MARKO DIMITRIJEVIC
Photographing the beauty of the world: that’s what Marko Dimitrijevic has wanted to do since he was a teenager, when he spent an entire summer working towards buying his first SLR camera.Originally from Yugoslavia, Marko taught himself photography on the field during and following his extensive formal education and subsequent business career.
Having spent more than 35 years traveling the globe as a an entrepreneur and investor, Marko Dimitrijevic is widely recognized as a pioneer in the emerging markets investing. In 2016, Marko published his first book Frontier Investor: How to Prosper in the Next Emerging Markets, which Tony Robbins hailed as “A brilliant and entertaining book that teaches the why, how, and where to invest in the new emerging markets. Marko Dimitrijevic is the grand master of frontier markets investing.”
As Marko conducted on-the-ground due diligence around the world, with his work taking him to various continents, he spent his free time capturing the beauty of his surroundings. With his camera and reading materials always in tow, Marko learned the art—and discipline—of photography.
Marko Dimitrijevic attended the Faculty of Business and Economics at the University of Lausanne in Switzerland, acquired Swiss citizenship in his early 20s, then went on to earn an MBA from Stanford University. Marko subsequently traveled to more than 100 countries, shaping both his business and photography style. Marko has noted a symmetry in his two passions: good pictures, like good investments, don’t happen with luck, but require many hours of diligence, analysis, and grueling work.
With a style has been described as eclectic, Marko has studied and admired many masters, including Stephen Frink, Amos Nachoum, Paul Nicklen, Michael Poliza, Galen Rowell, Sebastiao Salgado and Steve Winter. Over the years, he’s gravitated towards wildlife photography and underwater wildlife in particular.
