'After graduating from drama school in New York, I had headshots that I liked…but they felt a little too ‘American’ and they weren't really me…in other words, a little too glamorous/model like and not really true to how I am as an actor. Mark, on the other hand, has given me something I know shows me off in my best, most natural light. Our session was so easy, comfortable and enjoyable…I haven’t done photos in so long but Mark made me feel right at home and I left with not only an abundance of great snaps (seriously, what a good position for an actor to be in when you’re spoiled for choice in picking headshots!) but so much wonderful insight and knowledge into the industry. I cannot recommend him more highly – thank you so much again, Mark!!'
