More about Marc B....
What do you love about your job?
I love to travel. Photography gives me that joy. Because I shoot for various clients in many different cities, I am constantly on the go. Photography always involves editing the good, bad and ugly. And so is life, thus traveling to various cultures I get to see the good, the bad and the ugly. Photography is a wonderful medium that grants one the power to access great beauty or less desired results with the simple movement of light, composition and mood.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
I have done many fashion shoots and make them special now by creating some fashion video clips for my clients. The video clips added to the fashion catalog has been a major hit for most designers. The are able to use the extra content for social media and fresh content.
I have done many portraits and make them special by focusing some of my time and energy getting my subject to relax and/or building their confidence. "You can't photoshop a smile" I say. Clearly you can, but an image is best when less photoshop is needed. Getting someone to pose is actually difficult simply because most people don't like their own appearance. This challenge I enjoy and make sure portraits are done nicely to help the sitting go as best as possible.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I received some awards from Galleries and local newspapers in New Jersey.
Any compensation is recognition enough for me and makes me grateful to have made money shooting when everyone has a camera today.
