MARC S. LEVINE
Marc’s passions for photography and sports took root at an early age, and he has successfully married the two throughout a distinguished career. At the age of 15, he published his first image, from an NFL game played at Shea Stadium.
He attended School of Visual Arts in NYC where he received a BFA in Photography. He believes SVA provided a solid foundation for his creative abilities and artistic vision. He has always been proud to say he is a graduate of SVA.
Marc has been the sole Chief Photographer for the New York Mets since 1989. During his 27 seasons with the team, he has mentored many young photographers, several of whom have gone on to successful sports careers.
He strives to not only document events but convey their intensity, energy and emotion as well.
Beyond baseball, Marc has photographed the National Football League for 25 years, as well as numerous NYC Marathons, the US Tennis Open, international soccer matches and numerous concerts. He was a Contributing Photographer in the 1970s-1980s for Focus on Sports.
Throughout his career, Marc has been committed to community service and is active in over a dozen charitable organizations. He has been a reading mentor with the NYC Department of Education for 15 years, and is a board member of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.
Marc continues to do corporate work for many freelance clients. In rare moments of down time, he enjoys photographing the landscapes of Cape Cod and Montauk.
