Mark has extensive experience in shooting colour, black and white film and transparencies in all formats from 16mm to 8 x 10 inches. He is also fully trained in personally developing all the photographs he takes and has extensive dark room experience. He was and continues to be a leader in the photographic world at embracing computer technology in the industry and has been digitally retouching all his work with "Photoshop" since the early 1990's.

Building and maintaining websites of all types is another service Mark offers.

All work Mark shoots is provided to the client the following day fully re-touched with no exceptions. This is unheard of in the photographic industry.
