About the PMC...

The Pan-Mass Challenge is the oldest charitable fund-raising bike-a-thon in our nation. Now in it's 27th year. The riders of the PMC have raised over $122 million for the fight against cancer. $.97 of each rider-raised dollar goes directly to the Jimmy Fund, the fund raising arm of the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute representing more than 46% of it's annual revenue. Contributions finance cancer research and help to improve the lives of those suffering with cancer.

For a world without cancer.

Every summer, each of the 4.000+ cyclists commit to raising between $2,000 and $3.000 for the privilege of being a member of the PMC team. Nearly 70% of those who ride are alumni and return annually with renewed enthusiasm and deeper commitments to both the rider and the cause. Logging between 89 and 192 miles over one or two days, through 46 scenic Massachusetts towns, they know each mile pedaled brings researchers closer to finding cures for the cancers that affect millions each year. They use their strength to help other who cannot.

I am a Boston, Massachusetts photographer and trained studio photographer who specializes in people photography, with a unique photography style that captures in photographs the true nature and character of any person or subject. I enjoy shooting location photography, fashion and portraiture photography, editorial and corporate photography for Annual Reports, brochures and advertising. It is my goal to provide my clients with the highest quality location photography and studio photography, created with the greatest level of professionalism that a professional photographer can achieve in Boston, Massachusetts or beyond. I am willing to travel to any assignment destination. I am as comfortable as a location photographer as I am as a studio photographer.

As an editorial photographer, I have had the opportunity to cover a variety of world celebrities ranging from the godfather of soul, James Brown to sports celebrities such as David Ortiz and Roger Clemens. As a veteran New England photographer, I bring the legacy of over 25 years experience and the experience of over 4000 jobs with me to each a freelance photography assignment. My passion as a Boston photographer is to document real people is a way that tells their story in photos, from editorial photography in magazines and environmental portrait photography to corporate photography to advertising photography both on location and in the studio. I am also capable of bringing my unique location photography and environmental portraiture style of photography to corporate and commercial clients looking for a more personalized and fresh look to their company image for annual reports, advertising, catalogs, company websites, brochures, sales sheets, environmental portraiture and billboards in Boston, Massachusetts, across New England, and beyond.

I am a professional Boston, MA commercial photographer who enjoys shooting photos of people, in environments and in the studio, for fashion, editorial assignments and corporate portraits in and around Boston and New England including New York, Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Vermont, Connecticut, and Rhode Island. Though I am a studio photographer adept in studio product photography people photography based in Boston, Massachusetts, I have traveled on photography assignments for clients all of the United States, Canada, and Europe. I can make my photography services available for travel anywhere in the continental United States on short notice. I have network of resources in most major American markets. Those resources include but are not limited to, hair stylists, make-up artists, regional location scouts, production coordinators, and casting agents.

Advanced digital photography techniques keeps the Steve Marsel Studio on the forefront of the digital revolution. From simple retouching, to advanced photo illustration, virtually no photograph escapes this final expression of creativity. Photo illustration is a type of computer art that begins with a digitized photograph. Using special image enhancement software, the photographer can then apply a variety of special effects to transform the photo into a work of art. When it comes to photo illustration, my images speak for themselves - flawless, absolute attention to detail, believable. Specializing in photo-realistic digital masking and compositing, the mastering of digital technologies coupled with skillful photography, allows my staff to craft sophisticated, elegant imagery.

I am a veteran commercial photographer based in the greater Boston, Massachusetts’s metro area. I specialize in environmental portrait photography from my home base in Boston, Massachusetts. I work both regionally and nationally. Feel free to contact me at anytime if you have any questions about my photography services or if you would like to set up an appointment to discuss your assignment photography needs and how I may be the right professional photographer for your professional photography assignment.
