I loved working with Mark and highly recommend him - his enthusiasm for photography is definitely evident! I was new to being the subject of a photographer, and he made me feel so comfortable in front of the camera with some needed and clear guidance/ideas on how to pose etc. I love how the photos came out - very professional, natural, and he captured my personality and humor perfectly in the shots! I’ve gotten many compliments on them and am using the photos/headshots in all my social media.

Mark creates a relaxing, professional and fun atmosphere for his clients, making being in front of the camera an ease. (Which is saying something for this awkward girl!) During our session, he showed that he had taken my vision seriously and ensured the shots we got matched what I was looking for. Not only was the end product perfect, but I had a great time as well! Thank you Mark, looking forward to the next one!

I'm a writer by trade, so being on camera makes me nervous, but Mark's care, vision and attention to detail put me at ease from the get go. His talent for getting people to relax and be themselves shows in his work—I couldn't be more thrilled with the entire experience, and end result. As a compassionate, true artist, he translated the feeling behind the photos I desired throughout a holistic photo shoot experience, start to finish: from prompting my spirit and brand ethos to shine through, to rounds of selections and polishing the final product. His communication, supportive nature and prompt turn-around time can't be rivaled. Mark has an eye for light, background, color, editing and personality unlike any photographer I've worked with (and that's saying a lot!). I would highly recommend Mark for any photo shoot, from highlighting the beauty of architecture and culture, to capturing the essence of humanity on camera. His photos breathed new life into my business and I'm so thrilled to have had the pleasure to work with him. I certainly will again. Choose Human Arts Photography with confidence, knowing you are in good hands. (And be prepared to feel wow-ed with the end result—his imagery is more powerful and profound than you can hope for!)

Mark is exactly what you’d hope for in a photographer. He puts a tremendous amount of thought and care into his shots and takes creative approaches to each project, whether that’s showcasing street art or arranging an early morning lakeside shoot with perfect light. Happy to work with him again anytime.

I had such a great time and had never been so relaxed on a photo shoot before. Mark has a way of making you feel comfortable in front of the camera. And before the shoot itself, he worked with me on finding the right location and styling to really tell the story of my brand. I am in love with the images!

I am absolutely thrilled with the photos that Mark took of me for my website. It's clear that he is dedicated to delivering a high-quality product and giving the customer exactly what they want. Before we even did our photo shoot, Mark talked to me about what kind of images I needed for the website: vertical, horizontal, shots with space around them so that text could be overlayed, etc. Then, on the day of our shoot, he listened to my suggestions, but was also able to make on-the-fly suggestions about locations that he thought would make beautiful backgrounds. And his eye was spot on! Finally, Mark is so fun to work with. He makes you feel comfortable and natural. My photos feel like me. I highly recommend him!
