Steve Marcus’ Top 2013 Photos

Thu, Dec 19, 2013 (12:52 p.m.)

As a general assignment photographer, I tend to get around to many different events. I cover a lot of boxing but also news, other sports portraits and feature assignments. One of the first assignment of 2013 was a porn breakfast, following the AVN Adult Video Expo, where adult film actresses were riding a mechanical pickle. This summer I shot photos of the Carpenter One fire on Mount Charleston. Even though firefighters saved most of the homes, residents faced more obstacles in September run off from heavy rains damaged homes in the Rainbow subdivision. I also shot the “Strip Shooting” in February that involved Ammar Harris and made national news. One event that was a lot of fun to cover was the Tough Mudder near Beatty in April. In addition to having people get muddy, jump over flame, and run through live electrical wires, organizers also colored the water in some of the obstacles - as a photographer who thinks about color, I very much appreciated it.
