    Mark was definitely the perfect choice. He took the time to explain the photoshoot process thoroughly without hesitation. Mark's patience and thoughtfulness are impeccable. Mark wear your 5 Stars proudly. Thank you for everything. Your the best!

  • Christina Hutson

    Mark has given me great customer service in the past 16 years. He’s provided ballroom dance competition photos with good composition, coloring, and promptness. His advantage is in knowing what the dancer’s next move will likely be and hitting the shot perfectly.

  • Charles Jackson

    He did an amazing job doing our family event! The videos and photos came out so perfect.

  • Jasmine Pelayo

    I needed some updated headshots for work and was recommended to Mark Mendez Photography by a close friend of mine. I must say I couldn’t be happier! He was very professional and fun to work with and my pictures came out beautiful. Whatever kind of photos you are looking for, he’s your guy!

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new customer?

Contact the client. Ask questions about the event or shoot. Get as much info as possible. Then suggest a method to proceed with the shoot, offering suggestions for location, date, style, look, feel and everything needed to have a great shoot. 


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Education - I have taken photography courses in college. I have been instructed/Supervised many people over the years in performances and photo/video shoots. I feel I can express my message and execute what needs to be done. 


Do you have a standard pricing system for your services? If so, please share the details here.

Too many to list here. There are so many variables. Location, hours, how many looks, MUA needed, wardrobe, shooting time, editing , etc 


How did you get started in this business?

My father was a photographer. I felt like photography was something I wanted to follow from him. Once I started taking classes in college and seeing the printed image I was hooked. I've enjoyed capturing images all sorts of images. 


What types of customers have you worked with?

I have worked with young actors/artists to older corporate business people. I have worked with fashion models to clothing brands. I have enjoyed all the clients I have met. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

One of my recent favorite events was shooting LA Fashion Week. I have shot the runway at Fashion week for several years now, but last season the producers of The largest show in Los Angeles invited me to setup a private photoshoot area and capture images of all the models. I felt very inspired to shoot so many designers and models. 


What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a pro in your area of expertise?

Shop around and ask lots of question. Don't settle for the least expensive photographer but you don't necessarily have to pay for the most expensive photographer either. Find a photographer that feels like a good fit for what you want. 


What questions should customers think through before talking to pros about their needs?

There are many considerations for different kinds of shoots. Some key factors would be - location, lighting, time of day, wardrobe, how many looks, how many people, etc. These details are a factor in the time and pricing of the shoot.
