Mark Stetler’s life and career in photography span more than twenty years. Born and raised in Cleveland, he worked in Atlanta as a commercial photographer prior to coming to New York City in 1994 to assist Richard Avedon. This inspirational relationship led to creative ventures of his own in portraiture and fashion, two fields where he currently shoots for clients, worldwide.
Stetler’s fine art work gained recognition through Mamiya’s Emerging Photographer’s Award and the publication of his images of September 11th shot from the rooftop of his studio near the World Trade Center. Numerous exhibitions of his work have followed.
Landscapes in the Catskills and Eastern Long Island where Stetler currently resides have inspired a new body of work combining his affinity with nature with his fascination with the pinhole camera to create enigmatic landscapes shot “without glass.”
An avid sailor, Stetler has captained his boat Alliance through many of the waters depicted in these photographs.
