ABOUT ME

Hi, my name is Mark, and I am a portrait and wedding photographer based in the Reno-Lake Tahoe area.

I am a left-brained thinker with a natural inclination to approach tasks in a fairly structured fashion. I studied engineering and mathematics as an undergrad, and consequently, my mind was further conditioned to think this way. Despite the various complex thought processes that occur in my head daily, several pockets of creativity constantly yearn for attention. When photography played a more prominent role in my life, it became evident that this artistic outlet was much more than a beloved hobby, but rather the common denominator I needed to balance the left side of my brain with the right.

Whether it be the day you recite your vows, or an afternoon spent creating memories with your loved ones, I use film as my primary medium to capture each and every moment. When I am unable to utilize natural light's beauty and warmth at its best potential, I switch to the versatility of digital photography. No matter the tools used, my main priority is to preserve the very special memories that you hold dear in the most beautiful way possible.

If you are interested in my services, I would love to chat with you over a cup of coffee, tea, or a nice cold glass of craft beer. Please Contact me for more details.
