About Me

I've studied portrait photography techniques through the writings of Lindsay Adler, David Ziser, Bryan Peterson, and Roberto Valenzuela.  What I love about photography -- including portrait work -- is the melding of both the technical and the creative/artistic process. Good photography is hard to achieve, but when you do it well -- you can create visual magic.

I'm looking for models who share a mutual interest and would like to have photos of themselves to build their portfolios.  My wife is my lighting assistant, and I live in the Kingstowne area of Northern Virginia (on the edge of Alexandria).

See the link below for a more comprehensive sample of my images -- which also include landscape, travel, and street photography:[email protected]/with/51125595874/

"Working with Mark and Lena was indeed a treat. They both radiated warm, positive energy so much, so I was able to get comfortable in my poses. Great communication, positive energy, I felt safe it was a safe space to pull out my talent. Appreciate them both. Will be working together in May rounding up for another "art-tastic" good time. Also we were on site for over 4 1/2 hours they even offered me a snack. They got a friend in me. For sure!" Read less

"Mark was a pleasure to work with! Leading up to the shoot, he listen to what I wanted and incorporated my requests into our photo shoot. He was very professional and completely transparent every step of the way and worked with me to make sure I had everything in place for the photo shoot to run smoothly. The picture turn around time was also very quick. I would recommend him to anyone in need of a photographer!" Read less

"Hot, strong, harsh, glaring sun; my bad sense of direction/navigation skills (Like we joked, when I know where I'm going, I know where I'm going, but when I'm really lost, I'm really lost and there's no in between); and aggressive bees (which I envy your ability to ignore), oh my! We were all wonderful troupers - you, your wife, and I and I had a fantastic time working with and in getting to know the both of you. The time flew and you gave me some of the best praise (It often had me grinning from ear to ear) I've ever received in my career." Read less
