About the Author

Ed Marshall Photography NYC
Dreadman718 Brooklyn, New York

Freelance Photographer residing in Brooklyn, New York.
Born in The Bronx, he now resides in Brooklyn. Ed Marshall fell in love with photography on a hot Summer's day in 1990. He purchased a Chinon CP7M semi-auto SLR after the Canon AE1 his father gave him, had its body cracked in an accident. The purchase of the new camera wasn't made right away. The initial urge to purchase a new camera was to inspire him to write from captured images. Being a musician at the time he found inspiration in still-imagery and went out looking for his music. His photos were seen and purchased by a partner of a well known accounting firm in New York city, just a year later. March 2006 Ed would pick his cameras up again to document the New York City artist/music scene and the world as he now sees it.

I’ve said this in a more private setting but allow me repeat in cyberspace – Ed Marshall’s photography makes me want to be a Rock Star or throw an event just so he can take pictures. However, the more fundamental truth is that Ed Marshall can make anyone and anything look special in his lens, and that is what makes his images so damned brilliant. Some photographers are good with capturing hue, others are good with timing while others are good with framing context and emotions. Ed Marshall separates his talents from the pack because he kicks butt in all of these areas…
