Marcell Puzsar 1


I am a Hungarian born, international award-winning fine art photographer, who is constantly creating breathtaking images in my favorite 1:3 panorama format. Having spear-headed countless photography tours and several photo exhibitions globally, I am currently being recognized as one of the emerging talents in panoramic photography.

After traveling the world on different photographic assignments for nearly 10 years I now call San Francisco and the magnificent Bay Area my home. My work is diverse and captures both the magnificence of natural landscapes and the man-made augustness of our cityscapes, all the while focusing on the environment as a whole.

My inspiration comes from the grandeur of our living world and thought of being able to instantly capture those great moments, a talent that I discovered at an early age. I am a free spirit and have happy, contented soul, especially when I am living out my passion. I thrive on adventures and the beauty of other countries and pride myself in being a dreamer and a believer, a loyal friend and partner, a teacher and a charismatic individual that surrounds oneself with a remarkable group of family, friends and students.

I currently shoots with a medium-format panoramic film camera, the Fotoman 617 MKII-L complete with 90mm Fuji & 210mm Schneider Super Angulon XL lenses.

My main film choice is Velvia Fujichrome – Velvia 50 and Velvia 100 mainly – with its fine grain, extreme sharpness and fantastic color saturation. Although shooting on medium format film is more time consuming and costly than digital – with only 4 photos per roll of film, it allows the capture of very well detailed 6x17cm transparencies. This results in outstanding quality photographs that can be enlarged greatly.

On the digital side I also shoot with a Canon 5D Mark III with 35mm and 50mm Canon prime lenses.My kit also includes a large filter system with different strength of graduated neutral density filters (2 and 3 stops Singh-Ray and 5 stops B&W ND) and a polariser.

My mission is to feed the soul through the visual exuberance or my artistic creativity by capturing scenes and visions in natural light that evoke an indescribable euphoria in the viewer.
