A Bit About Mark
Mark is Director/DP/Photographer based in Los Angeles, California. He works seamlessly between motion and stills, often switching fluidly between the various storytelling mediums while on set. This fluidity makes him the selection of many top agencies and creatives when shooting print campaigns on the back of broadcast spots.
Graduating from Stanford University with a degree in Economics, Mark worked as an international business consultant in Los Angeles, Sao Paulo, and Buenos Aires, before returning to the United States to begin his creative career. His work has won countless awards including Clios and multiple selections in the Communication Arts, American Photography and Advertising Photographers of America annual contests.
A few additional important facts: The most common receipt you find in Mark’s expense report is for Auntie Anne’s pretzels. With a mustache Mark may look like Sacha Baron Cohen. Many blackmail photos already exist of Mark so if you get one on your next shoot with him, you can be pretty sure that it will not help get rush charges waived. Mark is not related to Annie Leibovitz. Or is he?
