Artist’s Biography

For Marty, photography is a pursuit from which he may never retire. While his quest for newer images takes him to many places, it is in his Delmar home where he applies his magic. There, in his studio, he experiments, compares, and chooses the right touches transforming photographs into unique pieces of art. His subjects include nature, landscapes, sea sides, urban scenes, and much more.

Marty has exhibited at Albany Center Galleries, Art De Cure Galleries, Albany’s “September in the City,” Twilight Park Annual Artist’s Show, Emerge Gallery, Spencertown Academy, Historic Albany Foundation’s “Built,” Troy’s annual “Fence” exhibit, Greene County Arts Council Gallery, The Canajoharie Library, as well as shops and other exhibits around the Capital District.

His photographs have also appeared in the Times Union, Spotlight Newspapers, Lake Champlain Weekly, Northern Exploring Magazine and the 2017 Erie Canal Heritage Corridor calendar.

Over time, he has gravitated toward fine art photography taking workshops at Maine Media College, The Center for Photography at Woodstock, The Art Center of the Capital Region and National Geographic Photo Expeditions.

Marty’s portfolio highlights a progression from natural scenery to more thought provoking themes, as well as expressions of mood and narrative. His body of work also includes numerous award-winning pieces which validate his efforts along the path he has taken.
