Mark Curry learned to photograph the story while studying photojournalism in the U.S. military and at Indiana University's School of Journalism. Story-telling is his passion. He has a knack for capturing candids in diverse settings that connect the viewer to the moment. Mark has continued to develop his skills and technique to include portraiture and special events, and enjoys photographing while hiking, biking and camping. He is committed to applying his talent for good purpose.
Every photography job is a new adventure, an opportunity to connect with, and learn more about, the subject, places and events that shape our world. I enjoy the creative challenge to use my equipment and skills to produce images that properly tell the story.
What types of shoots have you done and how did you make them special?
Most recently I worked with an independent journalist to cover the Indiana political scene. My goal was to produce work that conveyed emotion and purpose through close-up and wide-angle photography. I have also contracted with several political campaigns to provide photographs for use in news and marketing materials, including mail and digital marketing media. I actively volunteer in the community. My portraiture and special events work supports a place of safety for victims of domestic abuse, and I also cover the annual walk to raise funds for causes for the blind.
