Ifa Brand said...

Had a great shoot with Mark @Studio CC.
The  great thing about Mark was he already had the ideas in mind he wanted  to shoot, knowing the studio, having a clear plan of what he wanted to  do with lighting... so for me the job was easy. Not to mention he also  brought some lovely styling with him for me to shoot.
We  did several sets and of course it was clear Mark knows his craft. Bam,  lights this way. Boom, lights that way. Once again making my life very  easy.
Now, about the person Mark...
We had several  great talks together in between sets and it became clear our minds are  alike on various subjects. Mark made me feel relaxed and ready for the  day and for that I am thankful!

BexWhite said...

I have been terribly remiss in failing to leave a reference for Mark before now - I am so sorry Mark! This is absolutely no reflection on how much I enjoyed the shoot - I genuinely loved every moment. Mark has a great skill in recognising a model's strengths and playing to them - which is a lovely way to work. Mark is wholly respectful, and made sure I was comfortable at all times. He is also very laid back and relaxed - an absolute delight to work with

Thank you Mark!


Ari Adne said...


Having already met Mark before the shoot, I had no reservations regarding his sociable and affable nature - and as a photographer these attributes were consistent as anticipated. Faultlessly accommodating and professional with a insatiable flare for experimentation and real-time development; more than happy to facilitate ideas and suggestions I had with the creativity to integrate them with his own to establish an effective final product as a collective.

The entire shoot was an inarguable pleasure from start to finish and I cannot recommend Mark highly enough. I look forward to working with him again!


kim brown said...

Mark was quick with communication, making for an easy booking. He was professional throughout the shoot and had a clear idea of what he wanted, giving good, clear direction.

Mark looks after his models well and treats them with respect, giving a relaxed and enjoyable atmosphere for all

I had the pleasure of working with Mark for the first time yesterday. He creates a very warm and welcoming environment and is highly professional. He edited some of the shots he had taken between model changes which was great to see the images so quickly. I would be happy to work with Mark again.


Claire Gasking


I had the pleasure of working with Mark today. He is a very friendly and welcoming person. He picked us up from the train station and we worked in his amazing studio. He has many creative ideas and allowed me to use my own aswell. He gave positive feedback throughout the shoot and was very patient when it came to the hair and make up.

Marks editing made the photo 100% better. He takes into account every inch of detail in the photo with very quick results. Would love to work with him again!
