Mark Shastany

Has been passionate about Photography for over ten years- photographing subjects ranging from Fine-Art Landscapes and Portraits to Commercial and Product photography.  He has been taking pictures since Middle-School in the late 1990's.  Mark studied Photography at Parsons The New School For Design and earned his Bachelor's of Fine Arts in Photography from San Francisco Art Institute- studying under photographic legends like Jack Fulton, Henry Wessel Jr, and Darcy Padilla.  

He is a Boston, MA based Photographer specializing in portraiture, commercial work, and landscape.  Mark has photographed everything from the stunning landscapes of the Nevada Desert, The United States driving cross-country, to President Barack Obama prior to the 2008 elections.  He has extensive experience using cameras of all types from the Polaroid Spectra, Toyo 4x5 view-camera, and a variety of digital cameras ranging from Canon, to Nikon and Hasselblad.  

He is interested in working on portraiture and music photography in the near future as well as working with the Boston Queer Community.
