I highly recommend Mark Laing for all your photography needs! Mark recently took pictures at an inaugural scripted reading event I hosted at the Writers Guild of America West on behalf of the Committee of Black Writers, and he did a fantastic job! He arrived in a timely manner and didn't waste any time getting started. I told him exactly what I wanted from him and he nailed it! His pictures were incredible and so creative. He took, literally, hundreds of photos and I (and everyone) was very pleased with them all. Everyone can't take good pictures of People of Color but Mark can and did. No matter the skin tone, he made sure to capture every person in the most beautiful way possible. He also got me sneak peek pics the very next day and worked very patiently with me to ensure I was 100% pleased before the pics went out. They say "A good snapshot keeps a moment from running away" and Mark made sure that this momentous event will be something we will always be able to look back on fondly. Hire him! You won't regret it.
