More about Marshall S....
What do you love about your job?
I love the fact that a session is never the same. The ability to gain someone's trust and execute a talent and passion of mine for their brand or self is an honor that I take seriously. Having that privilege and ability to connect with clients and build a network is such a unique way to make a living. I specialize in meeting you where you are in life, where you’ve been, and where you’d like to end up, then executing it in visual form.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
This past spring I gave bundle deals to clients in Austin that involved taking their dogs to this beautiful bluebonnet field on a hill overlooking the city of Austin. It was special in that the client was able to capture the bond they have with their loyal companions in a true Texas fashion. In addition to the photos I delivered to them, I also included a "session recap" video that was a minute long. The idea here was to have an intimate freehand, behind-the-scenes piece to accompany with their photos in a carousel post. These videos were candid, personalized with a song of their choice and delivered with their photo packages.
Awards, honors, and recognitions received
I have had my work for Penske Tech showcased on their site and in several articles in Detroit Free Press, Curbed Detroit, and WXYZ. Many pieces of my work for the Heidelberg Project have been showcased in Articles in Detroit Free Press, Baltimore Magazine, Architectural Digest, and Matador Network.
A fun fact about this photographer
As an artist, I play guitar in a very successful hip-hop band in Austin named Magna Carda. I do digital analysis for a company named Social Factor working with clients like Facebook and Best Buy. In addition to all of this, I also score videos for a film agency named Banyan in Atlanta, GA. I try and be as creative as possible in my day-to-day.
