Mark usually enters each school early in the morning to set up his equipment and organize his team of photographers. Shortly after the rendition of Canada’s National Anthem, a stream of students flow into the gymnasium where smiles are met with strobes of lights. Then his shooting day begins.
”Throughout the day, I am required to photograph around 200 students," says Mark. "I get great satisfaction and a sense of accomplishment when I can get a genuine expression from the students that come to my camera. Because I am also a parent, I can relate to the excitement of the moms and the dads when they see their child’s well-photographed portrait.”
