Meet Mark, Your Key West Photographer
Mark has combined his love of hiking, backpacking and other types of adventure travel with photography to capture photos of nature and all settings of outdoor scenes. While photographing family members for senior photos and family portraits, he discovered his passion for capturing photos of not just the people, but also their energy, mood, emotion and vibe. That passion led him on a photography journey to expand into photographing couples, engagements, weddings and events. He is a big supporter of Camp Ho Mita Koda, the world's first summer camp dedicated to serving diabetic children, volunteering during the camp sessions and independently organizing fundraisers to benefit the camp. In addition to portrait photography, he also manages Coast to Summit Images for his landscape photography and keeps his own artist website that showcases all his photography genres and projects.
Mark now spends the majority of his time in Key West, but also travels and is available for photography in other cities and states.
