ARTIST BIO

MarkdePaolaHeadshotMark de Paola is a New York-based director and fine art photographer who works in the fashion, beauty, and celebrity sectors in both still and motion pictures. De Paola has shot countless campaigns, editorials, and covers for various noteworthy publications. He has seen his storytelling has also been translated across a broad range of television work, having directed nearly 700 spots.

His fine art photographic series, 60 Seconds, delves into a realm of abstract figures, fluidity, and poetic forms, which challenge and seduce the limits of motion contained within still images. With each photograph taken as a 60-second, handheld exposure, de Paola has discovered the connection between his physiological make up, the Leica M camera as a tool, and time—the unflinching competitor to the timeless image.

His most recent commercial works are the Art of Backstage, a worldwide collaboration with Aveda, as well as lectures and workshops including “Stanley Kubrick: The Exhibition” at the Contemporary Jewish Museum San Francisco and “Photography Wide Open” with Leica Camera. Producing and directing multiple upcoming feature films— including Proof Film—as well as producing his own fine art portfolios, de Paola melds the crossroads between both fine art and commercial aesthetic.
