Paul Marto

Paul has been passionate about photography since the early 80's. Nature, wildlife and action shots are his favorites. He loves the challenge that arises from the unpredictability of his subjects when he is trying to capture the perfect wildlife moment. He is a native of California but recently moved to Salt Lake City, Utah in July of 2013. Mr. Marto grew up in Carmel Valley, California so it is no surprise that he gravitated towards wildlife photography. Mountain bike riding, hiking, tennis and playing the electric guitar round out the list of pursuits for this U.C. San Diego graduate. He has a beautiful wife and two adorable children.

Paul’s work has recently been highlighted by National Geographic, USA Today, KSL.com, Utah.com, Bolsa Chica Conservancy, Sea & Sage Audubon Society, The Environmental Nature Center, The O.C. Register, Irvine World News, Focusingonwildlife.com, WildlifePhotographyNews.net. He is a recent winner in the City of Irvine 40th Anniversary Photo Contest and his works have won numerous on line photo contests as well. Juried into a number of organizations including LagunaArt.com, AmericaFineArt.org, Artists of America, Gallery 104, RAWArtists.org and TurningArt.com.

"Through my photography, I am trying to bring awareness to the abundant collection of wildlife that cohabit the Salt Lake area. The more we know about these amazing animals and their requirements for survival, the better prepared we will be to live a peaceful coexistence with them. I strive to present brilliant photographs of these wonderful creatures, large and small, in a way that will both inspire and educate."
