“Mark is one of those special people who brings together the ability to capture the true essence of a story and combine it with his cinematic vision, making the ordinary, truly extraordinary.”
I’ve had the pleasure of working with Mark for a number of years and greatly appreciate the quality and professionalism he brings to set. Give him the right tools and he will make magic happen. Thank you Mark!
Lucy Rei - Producer
“Mark’s photography is stunning yet equally he is a very kind man with incredible insight.”
He’s great with actors and has genuine compassion for people - this shows in his work. Mark can work at any level without stress - huge budget productions to fast documentary style, regardless; he captures shots that are breathtaking with a smile on his face. A wonderfully talented cinematographer.
Jason Stutter - Director
“Mark always approaches his work with careful, undivided attention. He cares - treating each project with the respect it deserves, no matter what the budget or subject matter.”
Mark is someone who values people and tikanga (cultural protocol). We have filmed some very humbling, provocative, and challenging material. Mark is consistently respectful and considerate of others. As a director, I am always made to feel secure. I know he has my back, supporting me with the story when appropriate and enabling a good sense of wellbeing among our crew members.
Mark is always positive on set and generous with ideas. He can problem solve logistical and aesthetic challenges under pressure, and at the same time receive creative feedback in an open and humble way. That's a rare attribute.
Briar March - Director
“Mark is a perfectionist, no doubt about that. He always ensures his work is of the highest quality.”
He is very knowledgeable about his field and pulls out all the stops in the execution of each shot. You can be sure no corners are cut when Mark is on the job but at the same time, he is flexible and keenly aware of budget and time restrictions faced by all productions and can adapt accordingly.
