International Photographer, Speaker, Writer
Hi, I’m Mark, and I am thrilled to meet you! I will learn more about you during our planning chat, then our photography session. Let me share a bit about me with you.
My clients describe me as an intuitive master photographer they feel disarmingly safe and creative with. I do seem to sense what a woman wants, along with how bold is comfortable for her. I have won many awards perfecting the quality of my images. Yet my natural talent is bringing out each woman’s essence of beauty, even when they can’t see it.
From the beginning, I noticed I could facilitate transformations and self-discoveries in my clients. It’s a talent I enjoy expanding. Women tell me how much their experience with my studio changed their lives; building confidence, body embracing or giving her a boldness. It is an intentional, seamless aspect I weave into every session. To see a woman transform during a session is so gratifying!
Here is a quick background glimpse of me since I started in 1980. Let’s see; I have photographs in outer space, I was the first studio in western Canada to specialize in photography of women, nudes and lingerie. I am an international judge, photography reality show winner, have photographed women in 16 countries and I’ve taught around the world! I have 6 books out there, including a poetry book and Revelations, a book of client’s stories. Won 5 photographer of the year awards, hold Master, Craftsman, fellowship, and 37 accreditation awards. Plus, lots of trophies! There is more, but that touches the highlights.
Oh and I love to tell stories that my clients share with me; you might become one. I see such beauty and character in my clients. It is an honor and thrill for my photographs to show that to them as well.
My studio is pretty eclectic, with imaginative flairs happening all the time! I love pushing creative boundaries, staying ahead of the curve in my niche of photographing women.
I am looking forward to learning more about you, to create images that resonate deeply with you that are breathtakingly beautiful!
I live for this; it’s my passion.
Meet our Sprite!
You’ll see her flying out of the Inner Spirit name in our logo. She represents confidence, freedom, beauty, fun and playfulness but she has been known to be a bit mischievous at times!
We love the myths and legends of Sprites. They are described as ethereal, lively, vivacious and witty. Sprites are considered to be beautiful, ageless fairies who are very protective. They will whisk women away to safe places, defending them from evil creatures.
Our Sprite is imbued with all of these mythical traits. Watch for her, she is looking after you!
