Biography

Mark Robert Halper is passionate about everything he does. A commercial photographer for over fifteen years, Mark has built a successful career in a very competitive field by bringing a consistent vision to a very diverse client base. As a people, still life and architectural photographer, for clients that range from magazines to ad agencies, he thrives on the variety in the projects he tackles. “Every day is something different doing exactly what I love.” Mark says, and he wouldn’t have it any other way.

What stays the same is Mark’s approach. “I take out everything that isn’t absolutely necessary, until the only elements that remain are those which are entirely essential; the best photographs are usually the simplest.” “It’s about getting something honest out of who I’m shooting” and even the most challenging personalities come across as relaxed in his images. Not surprisingly, Mark has found himself with an ever increasing amount of celebrity work. “Sometimes you only have five or ten minutes for one setup, the idea is to turn that hurried energy into something dynamic that comes across on camera.”

Mark has a particular talent for arriving on location and making great images with what is on hand, based on what needs to be communicated. In fact, most of the images on this website were not planned out in advance.

Mark has his own perspective, both visually and philosophically. “When I’m setting up, people often don’t understand what I’m doing and that’s how I know I’m on the right track. When they see the test images they get this quizzical look on their face, as if they’ve never before seen that particular corner of their own office or home. Then they smile. They see something that can only be communicated visually. They see what I see; I’ve influenced the way they look at the world.”

Clients have often commented on Mark’s “boundless energy” and “enthusiasm”. Mark credits his success to an absolute passion for what he does and a highly proactive approach to every aspect of his work. “I’m always working to evolve, I’ve even let go of keeping up a conventional portfolio; my website, studiomark.com, can show a much greater variety of work and doesn’t need to be shipped. One of the best things about what I do is that there is always room to grow. I’m never going to retire, what would be the point?”

When not creating images of beautiful woman and titans of industry for some of the world's most respected business and publications, Los Angeles based Photographer Mark Robert Halper moonlights as an international jewel thief and a spy.
