Marc Austin - Owner/ Photographer
What is it about the confines of an office that has always seemed massively unappealing to me? I would surmise that it's the lack of creativity usually associated with those sorts of jobs. Sure there are many people who aspire to run corporations, become investment brokers, or lawyers, but that was never Me. I have always been a very creative and passionate person. As a child I aspired to be a comic book artist and have been performing all my life, starting in my living room, and eventually co-starring in an Improv Comedy troupe and several independent films. How does any of this have anything to do with photography? Well, really it has more to do with my love of art. I have always been fascinated with people who can take a photograph and turn it into a piece of art. I credit my sister for having an "eye" for photography and truly has been an inspiration for why I developed such an interest. What started out as a way to connect with people and wildlife has turned into a full blown passion over the last several years. Having had headshots done for acting and sometimes being underwhelmed by the quality, I started developing my own skills to be able to offer other actors those oh-so-important photographs to help them land different performance work. This led to other people asking if I could take their portraits and that of course led to eventually being asked to photograph their children as well. Now I offer my services to you and yours!
I look forward to hearing from you and if you have any ideas, requests, or photographic needs not mentioned, drop me a line, and I'm sure Echo Reality Photography can accommodate. Thanks for choosing Echo Reality Photography!

He picked up his first camera at age 7 and from then on, could never again get enough.Continuing through high school and college, he honed his skills until he entered the military service. After returning from Iraq he was transferred to the Public Affairs Office of the 56th Stryker Brigade Combat Team as the NCOIC(non commissioned officer in charge) and Photographer. After separating from the military he founded his own studio, Stephen Gober Photography. It wasn't long after that he met Marc Austin and merged companies with Echo Reality Photography.
