Well-known for her fine art, fashion and beauty imagery, Marta Syrko began working professionally as a photographer at the age of 16. Gorgeous lighting, motion, and colors are traits in her refined work. Often using a Canon 5d Mark IV, she states that “it is necessary to create a high quality picture, but it’s not the main thing.” From dancers posing in flowered shapes to a photo shoot with a model submerging in water but afraid of it (see above), she elevates each series with the models, subject matter, and uniqueness of composition and framing.
