“I was looking for some professional-quality portraits that I can use in my business literature when a contact recommended Mark. His site & other work all looked very high quality so I was excited to see what we could get from a shoot. It was a real pleasure working with him, the shoot was really easy and I’m thrilled with the results – one went straight onto my LinkedIn profile. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark to any of my contacts.” Nina Sochon, CEO Transformed Teams

 Jane Hyder, artist. 2014_09_19Mark has photographed a number of my artworks which have been reproduced as greeting cards, calendars and posters for my UK distributors. The work reproduces well and I am very happy with the results. It’s also good to have a high resolution file of the artworks when the originals sell and leave my studio.


Stacey Neale: Positively Wellington Venues. We needed to upgrade our imagery and hence established a great working partnership with Mark from 2011.  During this time he has taken images both externally and within our venues which sometimes isn’t easy due to the lighting and movement restrictions dependent on the event.  We’ve had a consistently high result from Mark and now have a great selection of shots highlighting our venues and experiences within them.  Mark has been easy to work with, brings ideas to the table and often fits around our schedule which sometimes is very short notice.  We look forward to this partnership continuing.


“Thank you for sending over the files, the photographs look fantastic. I must commend you on getting on top of this project so quickly with little notice, and battling the weather and stadium limitations to create such good results!

” just a quick email in regards to the fantastic job that you did for us at the photo shoot at  Te Papa for the  Game masters, I really appreciate all the hard work that you put into the event, your skill, and professionalism are legendary!”


Barbara and Ian, married December 31, 2012.

“The photos are really beautiful – thank you so much for your amazing approach to the day :) I really love the more “candid” shots – where everyone is cracking up laughing or something like that – it really makes me remember perfectly how it was on the day. You made Ian and I feel completely at ease in front of the camera and able to just be ourselves – with the result that the photos looked natural and seamless”
