STORY

Marco Crupi is an award winning and published fine art landscape photographer and founder of Nada Mas Photography with a craft in capturing the overwhelming beauty of nature in his captivating photographs. Connecticut born and raised in Rome, Italy, he pursued his design education at the Istituto Europeo di Design in Italy which he further expanded by relocating to New York City to attend the School of Visual Arts. 

Through his passion for learning and growing in his field, Marco was successfully recommended by the Royal Photographic Society for a Licentiate (LRPS) by the official RPS Panel in 2015 and later achieved the highly sought after Master Photographer degree by the Professional Photographers of America (PPA) Board in 2017. The latest addition of accolades is the newly awarded SPSA Portfolio Distinction awarded by the Photographic Society of America presented to Marco for an outstanding Portfolio revision.

AMBASSADOR

COMING SOON

AMBASSADORSHIP & TEAM MEMBER

Throughout the years, I've used all sorts of different photographic equipment out in the field and in the studio. The ones that render best result, are the ones that become essential to my daily routine. They are reliable therefore I can comfortably affiliate myself with the brands. 

Feisol Tripod Ambassador.  2021 is finally here and I'm excited to announce that I have  joined the Ambassador team at Feisol! Their products are just amazing. I have been spreading the word since my first tripod: the  FEISOL Tournament Tripod CT-3442 Rapid. It just works! It's tough, it's light (2.5 lbs) and it's always with me when out in the field or even when I shoot in the studio. In that case I add the center column for extra extension and maneuverability. Check out their products! 

Singh-Ray Filters, is a quality brand of filters that I have had the pleasure of using for more than ten years. If you would like a 10% discount on your Singh-Ray Filter purchase, click here: TEN % OFF LINK or just click on the Singh-Ray Filters logo below. I've had the Vari-ND thin mount, a good quality variable Neutral Density circular filter and the equally stunning LB Color Combo that delivers incredible in camera extra vibrant colors as well as offering unmatched polarizing effects . 

Tamrac, in the past 20 years, I went through several backpack brands. I can comfortably vouch for the Tamrac brand. It is TOUGH!  I've owned a Cyberpack 8 (model no longer made) for ten+ years and I can guarantee you that this brand is true to itself and its products! I've put my bag through every possible climate; rain, snow, Death Valley heat, Sand all while packed filled with heavy equipment.Two camera bodies, 4-5lens, filter and holders, rain jacket, extra sweatshirt, laptop, drives, chargers, Tripod and all of the small additional accessories. Bonus, It has always travelled with me on commercial airplanes matching the required carry on size. Link to Tamrac or click on the Tamrac link below. 

WORKSHOP & INSTRUCTION

I offer small group landscape photography workshops out in the field as well as one-on-one instruction.
