My name is John Marshall Mantel, a photographer in NYC. I specialize in music, portraits, special event photography, and video production. Capturing images has been a passion of mine ever since I got my first point and shoot camera when I was fifteen. In 2012, I decided to help my best friend Bob Weaver pursue his music career. I followed Bob to local open mics and shows, documenting him performing and shooting pictures for other local musicians. By the summer of 2014, I had made a name for myself with the local community as their go-to photographer. I decided to create my own company that specialized in photography. My work has taken me from my hometown in New Jersey all the way to Massachusetts, Connecticut, Florida, Oregon, and California. I have learned valuable skills and grown as an artist as well as a business owner. This foundation has opened doors to portrait photography, weddings, real estate, and product photography. And I’ve been honing my skills with videography and live stream production. My goal is to provide exceptional service to all my clients. I strive to be professional in every situation. Thank you for reading my story, and hope to work with all of you in the years ahead.
