Mark has a way with women that allows us to relax and fully experience our own beauty and strength.
I refer women to him so that they can experience their own courage and emerge confident.
Highly recommended!

I had the pleasure of working with Mark last week for our first collaboration work together and I was very impressed. You can tell he is passionate about bringing a women's inner spirit and beauty out and made all of our models feel comfortable and safe. I was in awe of how every woman felt like a goddess and came out of their shell! More...

Q&A

I love changing how women see themselves. In the course of their photography experience, we see women becoming infused with confidence. A realization of beautiful and sexy they look. They always start out nervous to some level, have concerns that just drift away. Creating art of who they are is so thrilling.

We have women coming in who have just left a partner, are on their own, feeling vulnerable, emotionally lost a bit, their confidence and self-esteem have been abused while they often question their own beauty and sex appeal. We show them how amazing they are and look.

On the other hand, I get to work with women who want to anchor this amazing place they are at, they have accomplished things, at a passage or pivotal moment. They want to glow in their moment, to enshrine so it will last longer, be a rich memory.

I loved photographing women, creating powerful boudoir and nude images that spoke to the spirit of the women. I was thrilled watching the change in women as they worked through the photography experience. This was back in the late 1970s. No one else was doing this as a sole focus back then. Naturally, demand became high as women found a place to express their multifaceted, sexy selves.

There are some powerful reasons to select our studio for such an intimately expressive photography experience. First, there are 40 years of experience, this translates to the client into a wider range of posing guidance, more refined experience, better light sculpting to capture their best features and diminish their concerns. A more enjoyable experience because of experience in delivering their experience. (that was fun to express!)

Second, our image finishing, we are old school in our skill set so their images are retouched first, then enhanced, most just enhance. Prints are archivally printed in house, our books are printed in an Italian Castle staffed by women.

Lastly, we are the only studio to give these in fine print guarantees, in the country I think, If our client is not thrilled with her experience, amazed with her images when she first sees them, we will fully refund her session fee or redo the experience. Once printed, if she finds anything of concern with the image, we will redo it until she is happy. When she buys a session, it does not expire, we will always owe her a session.
