About Mark Thau Photography
Working with people is the most rewarding part of our job. Many photographers are very focused on the technical side of the work. That is clearly important and I take great pride in doing that well, however, it is just as important to make sure you are comfortable with me. Let’s face it; most people don’t look forward to having their picture taken. Many people put it right next to having a cavity drilled. (No offense to the dentists.)
By creating images you are excited about and showing you the back of the camera as we go, I can help you enjoy the sitting regardless of your comfort level with photography.
I got into photography through my love of the outdoors. Many of us have seen amazing pictures of well-known places. While backpacking and hiking I worked to be able to capture stunning vistas and beautiful landscapes. It was only a matter of time until I wanted to apply this passion and knowledge to all areas of photography. Being self-taught in both photography and Photoshop gives me a different approach with my images. I feel it affords me more creativity.
