About Mark

I have spent the last 40 years developing my skills and style as a photographer and teaching others along the way. I specialize in fine art landscape photography; I also have experience in sports, wedding, portrait and commercial photography. The equipment I have used over time have been film, digital, 35mm and medium format cameras.
I currently use Adobe Lightroom as my editing software and have experience with both Mac and PC computers.

In my photography, I like to get the most out of my equipment. Pushing the limits of the medium at times to get the unusual one of a kind shot. In my landscape photography I like to take the viewer to a place they don't often get to see. Sometimes taking an otherwise mundane scene and through abstract expression using lighting and perspective, create not only an expression of myself but capture a moment in time that we don't always appreciate.

It has been my experience that many beginning photographers don't understand the basics of their equipment. Therefore relying on the computerized camera to do the thinking for them. My training puts the power of knowledge back into the person holding the camera, allowing him or her to have total control and confidence in their photography. To help attain this quickly and thoroughly, I have written two photography training guides. Using 40 years worth of reading, research, experience both good and bad, I have compiled these guides providing a thorough understanding of the basics of photography and advances to more complicated techniques. To gain this knowledge otherwise, it would take years of reading, trial and error, along with hundreds if not thousands of dollars to gain the same knowledge. Examples include, basic camera knowledge, understanding your lens and the manual settings. Filters, when and how to use them. Digital and traditional film formats. The zone system and how it can be applied to color photography to gain total control of the medium. Understanding exposure that will put more impact in your images. Much more.

I will tailor your training to fit your needs and advance at a pace you are comfortable with. Whether it's a one time lesson, answering a question or providing a long term training program, I will do my best to help you along the way.
