Markus Sepperer was born on April 7 in 1978 in Carinthia, the southernmost district of Austria. Following his first and early passion, which is music, he began to study classical music at the Mozarteum in Salzburg and Vienna Conservatory.

Since he was early fascinated on visual arts too he started autodidactic to teach himself in photography and when he moved back to Vienna after finishing his music education, he did a three years education in artistic photography in Vienna at FotoK-Wien.
