Mark was excellent. He absolutely knows what he's doing as a portrait/headshot photographer. His studio, setup, and equipment are top notch. For me, the goal of this was to have headsets for the next 5-10 years that I can use in professional environments and on linkedIn. I think having good photos for presentations is one of the subtle details that are important. Mark was able to finalize some excellent photos that I am 100% satisfied with. If I ever to do something else with photography (family photos, etc.), I'd go to Mark first.Jun 1, 2017Verified

Really easy going, approachable person. I had never done a professional photo shoot and Mark made me feel very comfortable and at ease...even had some fun pointers for a great photo! Quick proofs and final photos too. Great value.May 9, 2017Verified
Mark was a pleasure to work with. His level of professionalism exceeded my expectations. I needed a quick turnaround on my headshots. He recognized my sense of urgency and was very responsive to my needs. His personality made the photo session enjoyable. I received my proofs in the timeline he promised. Once I selected the photos I wanted from the proofs, he did a great job of putting the finishing touches on them and returning them to me in the expected time frame. I will definitely use Mark again for my professional photo needs.Aug 14, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Most people spend between $200-$600 on average for their session and edited photos. I offer simple pricing and bespoke packages based on what you need for yourself or your brand. Example: Professional headshot session (LinkedIn, website, social): Session fee: $200 Professionally retouched final image: $40/each Optional services: Hair and makeup (highly recommended): $150
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Generally I start communication through Thumbtack, email or a phone call. After we work out some details such as booking dates, times, etc. I will send an email with information about my studio, location, wardrobe, makeup and hair. I also like to learn a bit about you and your needs for the images as this helps me make the session more productive and comfortable.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have my degree in broadcasting and communications. I have worked for television, radio, technology and digital media companies since 1995. I have been in front of the camera in independent films, news productions, shorts and I have some stage experience including theater, improv comedy and stand-up. I am always working to improve my photography and I work with the best headshot and portrait communities in the world to better my work for you.
