Bio

Marc's passion for architecture began when he was 16 years old. He went to visit his brother Keith, a student at the University of Florida, in Gainesville, Florida. It was then that Keith introduced him to photography by means of a Minolta SRT-201 camera. What began as a casual interest quickly grew into into a strong desire for capturing images of both interiors and exteriors of any building he came across. He soon realized his fascination for capturing a 3D space and transforming it onto a 2D piece of film. Consequently, following his graduation from high school, Marc embarked on his career path, attending The Art Institute of Atlanta, The Portfolio Center of Atlanta, and The Art Institute of Fort Lauderdale from which he graduated in 1990. He soon discovered the market for architectural photography. So it came to pass that he began his career, not as a photographer, as he had originally planned, but as an assistant to several well established photographers (mostly architectural). Then, in the early 1990's, he became an assistant to world renowned architectural photographer Dan Forer. This would later prove to be an invaluable experience in his career.

Simultaneously dabbling in other disciplines of photography, Marc has placed his primary focus on interior and architectural photography. Working predominantly with the large 4x5 view camera format, he has spent the last 25 years perfecting the intricacies of light, detail, and form to create memorable images for such publications as "Miami Home Decor," "Palm Beach The Island," "Open House," and other various advertorials in finer design periodicals.

Marc now spends most of his time creating images for interior designers, architects, and high end real estate agencies. He is a general member of the PPA (Professional Photographers of America) and a general member of the AIAP (Association of Independent Architectural Photographers, wherein he is the longest standing member on the AIAP directory page for Florida photographers. He is also a general member of the ASMP (American Society of Media Photographers).
