Over the next week or so we’re catching up on some entries in Suzanne Sease’s series The Art of the Personal Project. Suzanne has kindly taken the time to speak with photographers on their passion projects and we want to make sure they all get their moment in the spotlight!
Back in December, Suzanne spoke with photographer Mike Marques about why he chose to spotlight the Connecticut chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
Mike Marques is a portrait and lifestyle photographer based in West Hartford, CT. The images he creates are the result of the trusting relationships he builds with his subjects. When he’s not traveling on assignment, he can be found cycling the backroads of Connecticut or on a hike with his cattle dog. His clients include Connecticut Magazine, General Electric, Health Dialog, United Bank, World Wrestling Entertainment.
