I came across SmarterPics while searching for photography classes as my community education class was canceled. What a blessing that my community education was canceled! I called and spoke to Mark and after talking for a few minutes, sharing my goals and what I was looking for, I registered for the the Intro class and the weekly 3 part Basics Class.
In each class, I found Mark to be very knowledgeable and informative. I walked away after each class, excited to practice what I had learned, and happy to see my pictures improve (amazing how holding the camera correctly will help in that).
I appreciated Mark's smaller classes, the pace of the class and the willingness to come in a few minutes early or stay a few minutes late to answer any questions or in my case took a few moments to check a an issue I had with my camera or helping me with settings on my new camera.
I enjoyed the opportunities to practice what I was learning by going to Old Town and shooting. This type of hands on teaching is priceless and I will definitely be taking more classes.
Thank you Mark for your time and expertise, it is much appreciated by this student.

Greatly enjoyed the small class and personal attention. I feel a lot more in control of what I am doing now and can get out of "Auto" mode.

My husband and I knew Mark because he photographed our wedding. We liked him so much that we went to him for lessons! He taught us a ton about my camera and how to shoot. I would definitely recommend SmarterPics if you're interested in photography!

My wife and I attended one of the Saturday workshops, as a birthday gift for her. We purchased an entry level DSLR a few years ago, and while I knew much of the technical details, neither of us had really learned how to translate that into taking great pictures.
This class was a great introduction, we went over all the important features of our camera, and got some time to use what we had learned taking photos in Old Town. We had such a fun time, and Mark even offered us a discounted maternity shoot with him.
The next week we went to Mark's studio for some maternity photos. He spent a very long time with us, going through a variety of poses and styles, and took some beautiful photos.
We would definitely recommend Mark to anyone looking to learn more about their camera, or looking for a good photographer. We had a lot of fun both taking the class, and doing a photo shoot with him.
