Hi, I'm John Marcus.

I'm an NYC-based photographer who uses my time behind the lens to share perspectives rooted in my life experiences. I create personal, evocative imagery that ventures beneath the surface to reveal something new. I treat photography as both a technical and an artistic endeavor, using light to translate the energy that I feel. I mix sharp lighting and defining shadows to emphasize strength while relying on large apertures to highlight beauty. I work to create portraits that carry emotional depth, hoping to inspire viewers to empathize with both the people and themes they see in my work.
