Marko Susla, currently residing in New Jersey, was born and raised in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Marko’s interest in photography started very early in life. The first camera he ever used was a Rolleicord medium-format twin lens reflex camera using black and white film. As a very young boy, he was encouraged to independently use the camera as he saw fit and experiment. The excitement of taking his images and waiting for them to return from the developer was incredible. It became a true passion. From here Marko's interest in photography grew. It was a constant throughout his life.
Susla was classically trained as a scientist obtaining a B.S. from the University of Bridgeport followed by six years of post graduate studies at Wesleyan University (Connecticut). Photography was a natural extension of science; the both strongly intermingled, with the added aspect of being able to capture emotion and feelings. Both art and science, observing, capturing, interpreting, and presenting.
