Introduction: You're not complicated; you like things straight forward and clean. I can help you with that! I have been a professional photographer since 1985. I take great pride in working with great clients; we have fun. My photography services include corporate headshots, environmental portraiture, architecture, food, and product photography, photo retouching, and restoration. My studio (behind the Home Depot in Woodbridge) can handle small items like jewelry up to something the size of a golf cart. I have a very diverse background in creative media, including; multi-image production, special effects, studio and location photography, graphic design, 3D, retouching and compositing, photo restoration (and archiving). This experience goes to work for you. This work is not boilerplate; every project is custom work. Teaming with someone who has the experience to know how to get you to your goal is a great benefit to you. Professional photography, retouching, and restoration will make you glad you invested in it. We live in and age where there's an app for everything, and everyone has a "good camera." Professional photography still shines above because it's not about the camera. It's more about the lighting, and ultimately, the photographer's eye to see the shot, and their experience to troubleshoot when things go wrong or change on the fly.

Mark provided medical image editing for my organization, and I can recommend him without reservations. His work is quick, accurate, fairly priced, and he is an all-around nice guy to deal with. He will also provide feedback during the project and make recommendations if it can help streamline the work.

  • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?

    It all depends on the client. This isn't a cookie cutter business. Everything is on a per project basis. Custom work.

  • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

    Find out what they need. Contact them requesting more information, make an estimate, get it signed and downpayment if necessary, work on project and communicate status with client, complete project and bill for balance. Get paid. Follow up with client.

  • What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

    I attend online and local seminars about Photoshop, Lightroom, InDesign and others annually. I also have an Associates degree from the Art Institute of Pittsburgh for Specialized Technology: Photography and Multi-Media 1985.
