Founder of Fotorater.com and Editor-in-chief of Fotorater Magazine – Marc Cameron
Once the cover boy for the World Cub Scouts Association (circa 1992/93), Marc sacrificed boy band stardom and the opportunity to appear on the cover of Just Seventeen, for a career as a young media mogul. Something he doesn’t regret to this very day (OK, maybe a little).
Marc founded Se7en – an award-winning print and online magazine (supported by Time Out and Dame Anita Roddick), which interviewed Christian Bale, George Clooney, Iman, and Vampire Weekend. As a contractor editor for orange.co.uk’s websites, he boosted its Cars website’s statistics by nearly 200%.
He’s also the co-creator of web phenomenon the Light Graffiti Cars – featured in the Daily Telegraph, Daily Mail and Top Gear. And he’s one of the youngest ever people to appear in the Observer Magazine’s The Innovator section.
