Hi there, my name is Mark and I very much appreciate you stopping by.
I'm an advanced enthusiast type photographer who photographs for pleasure and experience rather than for financial gain and I do not have any ambitions of becoming a “professional” photographer although I do strive for professional quality and results.
I enjoy just wandering around capturing moments of time and for studio type portraiture I have a home based studio utilizing strobes, natural and continuous lighting along with miscellaneous light modifiers and equipment. I also have a good variety of backgrounds and props. All of my camera equipment and lenses are in the prosumer to professional category.
Aside from casual and studio portraiture, I’m also within a few miles of the beach, pier and harbor for those seaside and sunset shots as well as having a wonderful neighbor that has a beautifully landscaped pool area which they are kind enough to allow me to use for poolside sessions.
I have the computer skills, hardware and software that allow me to do basic photo corrections (retouch) or creative manipulations if needed or desired as well as photo printing.
I photograph most any genre, am very discrete, 420 friendly and as I am retired my availability is very fluid so I can usually easily work around others schedules. So if interested and you'd like to shoot just give me a shout and we'll see if we can set up a session soon.
For inquiries into my work or my availability, please use the message form, text or email to contact me. I thank you for your interest, and I will do my best to get back to you very soon!
