About Me

On hiatus for a bit... I just started school to become a Radiology Tech. See everyone around the holiday season.

My name is Mark A. Whitaker, I am a 2007 graduate of Brooks Institute of Photography. I specialize in portrait, event and sports photography. I am inspired by many different aspects of photography but would say most of my work is on the Glamour/Pin up side I am drawn to that style because of the creative freedom it allows me.

I am currently working on a project photographing heavily tattooed models for an upcoming gallery show. My goal is to capture the model's inner beauty as well as their fabulous ink work.

Limited TFP, my rates are reasonable just ask
Lastly if I send you a friend request it is because I am drawn to the beauty of your work and am inspired.

Looking for heavily tattooed models. No ankle fairy, or cutesy butterfly on your pinky toe.
Pin up models, I want to do more hotrod and chopper shoots for magazines so let me know if you are interested.
