Mark has shot many photos for us, including portraits of our son and photos for our destination wedding and reception. He demonstrates a range from traditional to fine art, and anything in between. He has mastered the use of natural lighting to give his photos personality and presence. The quality of his work and attention to detail are second to none and the variety he is able to offer to clients from a single photo shoot is impressive. Mark’s “urban nature” fine art photography is also present in our home on a larger scale. From tabletop, to portraiture, to location photography, Mark is able to capture the true nature of his subjects in a distinctive and artistic way.Feb 20, 2018
Mark is a very talented photographer who made the experience of getting my daughter's High School Senior pictures FUN for both the student and parent. He found locations that brought her personality into the pictures (not the standard pictures that look like everyone else's). He took a LOT of pictures at several locations to give us many options as well. He truly captured her personality and these will be pictures that will be treasured. Definitely recommend!Apr 19, 2018Verified
Mark has an inherent ability to capture the true nature of people in his photos. He connects easily with his subjects and is a wiz with natural light. He’s so enthusiastic and positive to collaborate with but it’s his demand for quality that’s evident in his work. I’m really thankful that I’ll have his images for a lifetime!Feb 17, 2018

We can’t wait to work with Mark again! He achieved the exact look we were trying to achieve in our family portraits. He delivered us beautiful, high quality images that we will cherish for a lifetime.Feb 12, 2018
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Two comments: These days, it is easy to find someone to take a photo. But it's not so easy to find a really good PHOTOGRAPHER. If you are paying someone to put your image or the image of your company or product out in the world, I believe quality, experience and professionalism matter. If you are looking only for the cheapest price, I may not be your candidate. Second but more importantly, if you are passionate about who you are or what you do, how you present your company or product to the world, I am too. I can typically work with you to make your budget work. Simple as that.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I want to know and understand your goals first. What are you, your brand or company about? What's the story we're going to tell with these images. From there, we'll develop a process for getting to the desired result together.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?• Bachelor of Fine Arts from Truman University, emphasis in design and photography • 20 years working in the commercial design and photo world • 15+ years as an independent designer/photographer • Multiple design and photography awards • Multiple gallery shows of fine art photography
