Michael Marano



Mike began his creative search after a change of careers In 2008. Working at a small design firm in New Jersey he felt it was time to explore his creative side . With a background in Marketing and advertising he decided to search creative outlets in this field. He soon after relocated to Atlanta where he would find his passion for photography. His stencil art was the gate way for his ideas to come to life . He had no skills in drawing or painting but his wild imagination made for great ideas that photography became the perfect medium. As a self-taught photographer with a passion for portraiture inspiration started with the work of some of the greats Joe McNally, Sandro Miller & Irving Penn. Soon after purchasing his first DSLR he trained by trial and error with a small studio lighting kit and local models. He pushed himself to learn every aspect there was to making a great picture. Michael currently resides in ATL where he works full time for a Children's Entertainment Corp.
