Marc Ullom’s lifelong love affair with photography began at age three, when he snapped his first image with his mom’s Kodak 110 Instamatic camera. Since that moment, the lens has been the medium through which he documents culture, place, and experience.
Marc taught photography for twenty-two years, including mentoring MFA thesis students at and developing curriculum for the Academy of Art University. He earned his MFA in photography from the Academy of Art University in 2008, graduating summa cum laude as valedictorian. He has a knack for getting to the core of his students’ goals and helping them break through tough technical and conceptual roadblocks by uncovering and analyzing their hidden strengths and weaknesses. His passion to push through obstacles has also propelled him to complete two marathons and two half-marathons. Marc has won awards in exhibitions across the country, and he was recently featured in a five-page B&W Magazine portfolio spread.
