MARK SELIGER: Interaction! Imagination!

© Mark Seliger

Mark Seliger skillfully established his reputation for his work for Rolling Stone magazine, thusly creating some of its most unforgettable covers. His powerful yet simplistic portrait images transform the way we see people and understand them. Seliger is widely considered by many to be the leading portrait photographer of his day with his extensive portfolio featuring individuals such as President Obama, the Dalai Lama, and the Red Hot Chili Peppers.

Mark successfully captures the personality of his subjects by using effective lighting, backdrops, poses, and most importantly the Mamiya Leaf Credo 60 camera system. Seliger explains why he chose the Leaf Credo 60:

“…The thing about medium format is that it gives you a different sort of connection to the work. With medium format you can get lens compression for a shallower depth-of-field—which is key in portrait photography”.

“I choose a camera system for its reliability and simplicity. Right now we’re trying out Mamiya Leaf. We like to keep or work streamlined and simple, because with our tight schedule, we don’t have the room to deal with equipment issues. Also, I understand that Mamiya Leaf has a great reputation for its film-like results”.

The Mamiya Leaf Credo digital camera provides that legendary Leaf image quality along with speed and versatility that are second to none. Additionally, the Leaf Credo delivers uncompromising image quality. For more product information, specifications, and sample images, please click here.
