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.

My wife and I discovered Mark and Smarterpics through Groupon. We took the offered class and found the it to be just what we needed (we are new to digital but longtime film). We have since taken several other classes from Mark, including the 6hr basics class. We found something useful, helpful, and informative in each of them. Mark explains well and listens to your questions. If he does not answer your question to your satisfaction please tell him you still don't understand. We have found that he will take as much time as you need to understand.
We have recommended him to some friends and even taken some to class with us.
If you are not sure of digital photography give Smarterpics a try.

I really enjoyed the class. Mark did a wonderful job explaining the how's and why's of taking good photos and was very patient and flexable to respond to the needs of the group. The small class format allowed him to move the entire class along at the pace necessary and nobody was left behind. Mark is very passionate about teaching photography. Strongly recommended!!
