Capturing the moment

Careful, considered photography of business and private functions…

“… in recent years the demand for reportage wedding photography has significantly increased and I began to apply this more personal documentary style of coverage to corporate and social events.

I’m usually commissioned to produce an overview of the event that not only shows the success of the function, but also reveals the build-up and behind-the-scenes atmosphere. Providing a ‘full picture’ of the event is invaluable to clients who often use the images in both internal presentations and externally for marketing, publicity and press usage...”

The Approach...

Unobtrusive, reportage-style event coverage, ensuring genuine, high-end results. 

Venues and corporations across London, the UK and beyond commission Mark to cover their events, functions and important meetings because they love the stylish finished result and use it in a myriad of ways to boost market visibility.

Rich content...

Mark offers end-to-end documentary event coverage, capturing everything from the back-of-house preparations, the final build, to shooting the completed space before guests arrive. This coverage then continues with reportage portraiture of attendees, bringing real life to the work and a sense of completion to the event’s pictorial narrative.    

It is material that has significant PR value and a quality editorial feel. The final selection will often start to flow within 24 hours of a commission.

Headshots and corporate portraiture...

Traditionally, headshots and corporate portraits were done in a flash and the results showed. Today, companies and professionals require more.

With increasing emphasis on personal and corporate branding as well as online and social media profiles, many companies and professionals now demand a more high-end, editorial approach to their portraiture. 

With this in mind, Mark regularly constructs an in-house studio for firms both large and small, ensuring optimum quality lighting results can be achieved in conference or meeting rooms. With an accessible, high-end editorial feel to the results, employees can be photographed just minutes away from their desks. And since the shoot can be viewed live-proofed as the session progresses, they can be assured of a result with which they are happy.
