Bio Marshall began his photography career in the eighth grade, when a sheriff’s helicopter made an emergency landing behind his home. He submitted his pictures to the local newspaper and was politely told to keep trying. After all, being 14 and riding a bike to assignments could be a challenge. A year later, Marshall shot a junior college men’s basketball game and had his first picture published. The $5.00 freelance payment had him hooked, and his photography career began. Marshall combines his love for his hometown, Los Angeles, with his love of photography. His shots of iconic Hollywood and Southern California have been sold as fine art. From 1984 to 1988, Marshall documented Skid Row with two LAPD footbeat officers. Showcased throughout Los Angeles and now displayed at the Los Angeles Police Historical Society in Highland Park, these unparalleled images highlight an era gone by. Specializing in photographing extreme sports, Marshall also carries his extreme style of shooting to SWAT, K9 and aerial units of various law enforcement agencies, as well as combat and aviation units of different branches of the military. For over 30 years, Marshall has been one of Southern California’s leading aerial photographers. His self-published book, Los Angeles Pools: A View from Above, depicts swimming pools in Los Angeles and Los Angeles County from the air. Marshall teaches photography to visually impaired students at the Los Angeles Braille Institute, helping them to “see” through his lens of description and imagery. Marshall’s editorial images have been published worldwide. His clients include the J. Paul Getty Museum, Six Flags, Universal Studios, Paramount Pictures, Men’s Health, Smithsonian, Maxim, Muscle and Fitness, and Runners World.
