Marlo Montanaro is a self-taught photographer and has been making photographs since 1986. He was born in northern New Jersey and now resides at the Jersey shore. Often he can be found photographing boudoir sessions, portraits, families, model’s portfolios in the studio or at the beach, or creating fine art along the shore.
His work has hung in The Downtown Café in Red Bank, Heaven Arts & Antiques in Asbury Park, and the Belmar Arts Council in Belmar, NJ, and has also been featured in the book “The Real Jersey Shore.” Marlo also has several album covers, promotional advertisements, and posters to his credit. He has an ongoing photo exhibit called "Legs" and has begun a new exploration into "Eyes." A hallmark of his style is large, highly detailed and bold images that provoke your attention.
Marlo shoots exclusively with Nikon professional equipment. He is also fully insured and is a member of the Professional Photographers of America (PPA), the Belmar Arts Council, and the Monmouth County Arts Council.
