About me
Hello my name is Mark Shane, photography is my passion and profession and I believe it shows in the attention to detail and style I put into every photo I take. 

  I cringe when I hear a photographer say "I'll just fix it in Photoshop"  through my training and mentoring I shoot for correct in the camera and then make any improvements with computer enhancing.  Its an art form that is worth learning and doing right, the background and corners of the frame are every bit as important as the subject.  I am a deliberate studio photographer but can "shoot and scoot" when needed.   Also I have never lost a day of shooting due to conditions on location its my job to control and not to be controlled by the conditions hence "the magic of photography".

  No job is too BIG or too small.  From a personal photo shoot to showcasing your commercial campaign, I pride myself on 100% client satisfaction.  You get what you pay for and consistent dependable professional results come with a price tag.

  My Studio and Art Gallery complex is located in the Merriman Valley on the edge of the Cuyahoga Valley National park.  Large floor to ceiling windows and french doors offering endless natural light options as well as a wide variety of creative flash employment, endless shooting and set options and a private rooftop garden patio (Im not in South Beach anymore so my hands are tied by "weather permitting" unless by a clients request there is really no need to roll out the seamless paper.  I am also available, completely equipped and staffed for "on location" assignments local and worldwide.

  Multi-media artists as well as painters, sculptors and other artists contact me for information to book a portfolio review and possible gallery features. 

Important note:

Escorts:  I have no problem with a model bringing someone along, especialy the first time to shoot with me.  I have nothing to hide when I shoot, I have a job to do but like to keep a relaxed, fun, open atmosphere (thats why I do this for a living and dont work in an office).  With the world being what it is today it is not a unreasonable request.  I ask that its limited to 1 person and dont be suprised if they get put to work smile  Please understand if they become a distraction they will be asked to wait elsewhere or the shoot will be over...I care about your comfort but there is a job to get done.

  I receive email alerts for friend requests as well as messages and will return an answer as soon as I can.  I dont spend very much time on here but have great friends and contacts as well as being a valuable resource.  I guess to quote one of my teachers and good friends "If youre talking you arnt working"

  From time to time I run Photographer workshops that I need models for where you receive shots from each photographer in return for your time as well as if there is enough interest a day that I book 8 to 10 models each with a 1 hour time slot 1 design set 1 headshot and 1 seamless set (hair, makeup and wardrobe are the models responsibility)

  Since this is "Model" mayhem the shots I have displayed are of models or dance related and not product, landscape, weather etc.  I believe I have shown good examples of some of my range and creativity in this area.  Also I believe I have trimmed my "friends" list to those I have shot with or have had some other professional contact with.  If you have an interest in a unique addition to your portfolio or the need to convey a unique artistic perspective feel free to contact me.  Please if you are on the other side of the country or the world unless you have a genuine interest in working with me do not be offended if I deny your request.
