Mark has been taking photos since 8th grade. Back then, they actually used film! Since then, as the industry advanced, so did Mark's talent, experience and equipment. But no matter what equipment he uses, he still believes that there is no technology that can replace his keen eye and ability to "visualize" the most striking images and then bring them to life in his lens.

This passion and experience comes through clearly in everything he does from customer service to getting you to be "yourself" in front of his camera.

More about Illusionary P....

What do you love about your job?

"WOW! I could never get a picture like that with my iPhone." That quote was from one of my restaurant clients after looking at the images I captured of the restaurant's menu. You might think that with the improvement in smart phone cameras that pros like me would have less work--but the opposite is true. While smart phones are great for social media and selfies, in business, there's still no substitute for professionally taken photos. And I love being the one to show people a new perspective on what they (or their product) CAN BE!

What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?

I have shot over 300 restaurants over the past several years and every shoot is still different. And while this type of shoot is very technical in nature, it is still a challenge to find the right mix of technical expertise and artistry to make the shots stand out from the crowd.
