Marc is a photographer based out of Whitefish, Montana. He gravitates towards the more epic, wild backcountry rides, but also loves berms, jumps, bike and park laps. Racing BMX as a kid in SLC, he was quickly drawn to the freedom and thrill riding trails. His first mountain bike was a Bridgestone MB3 with biopace chainrings and suntour thumb shifters. On his first mountain bike road trip back in '87 with his older sister, he road what was then the "Slick Rock Motorcycle Trail" and saw just one other rider the entire day. A great memory and one forever etched as a chainring scar on his thigh from one of those lovely sand traps. 

Now Marc follows his passion for outdoor adventures and photography throughout the globe. Marc's work focuses commercial, editorial and spec photography with an emphasis on mountain biking and other outdoor adventure.
