About Us

Everybody has a story...

Mark's started with a high school graduation gift of a camera. He had every intention of going to college to study engineering, but his new camera gave him a new passion. Changing his major to Art, Mark studied at Shepherd University with a focus in Photography. After college, Mark worked for various publications as a freelance or staff photographer, following dirt track racing and NASCAR, until opening his own studio full time.

As a photography teacher at Barbara Ingram School for the Arts since its opening, Mark shares his love and knowledge of photography. Mark loves teaching his students to use film and to process their own photos. Watching them create their own art is the true gift.

Mark decided early on he wanted to stand out from the rest and wants the same for you; your senior pictures - your way! We look forward to working with you and creating timeless pictures that you will treasure for years to come. This is your year! We're here to help you shine!
