Adam Marelli

Professional Photographer & International Exhibiting Artist

In 2010, artist & photographer Adam Marelli opened the doors of his studio to train photographers in the lost lessons of classical art. After the success of his “One on One Mentoring Program” he was invited to give an experimental lecture at B&H Photo Event Space in New York City. The first lecture “Bridging the Gap” (170,000+ views) connected the worlds of art and photography for the first time, in a language designed for photographers. Following the success of his first lecture, he was invited for a second lecture “How to talk to Strangers” (over 180,000+ views) which was highest reviewed lecture in B&H Photo history.

When Marelli is not in the studio, he runs projects and workshops internationally under the “Adam Marelli Workshops” program. With a calendar of sold out workshops, he wanted to make his teachings available online to a larger audience because he knows that everyone can become a better photographer. Now all you have to do is join his lectures to see why he believes that Success is not Accidental.
