Mark’s love of photography began when gifted with a camera at the age of six years old. It has been his greatest passion in life ever since. Mark read and studied everything he could get his hands on related to photography from that early age and continues to do so every day. As a portrait photographer in the late 90s, Mark was one of the first in that field in the New England area to embrace digital imaging and incorporate it into his business. By 2001 Mark started shooting with digital cameras and has never looked back.
As a well accomplished portrait photographer, Mark loved making people feel great about themselves by bringing out the best image of which they perceived or desired themselves to be. Though portraiture was the primary focus of his studio, Mark was very much a general practitioner serving whatever photography need was required for clients in the commercial market place as well. With the rapid advances of the digital imaging evolution, Mark was in a unique position to help other studios convert their film based businesses to the new world of digital photography. He worked closely with professional portrait labs and studios alike to help map the workflow for this new revolution in photography
Mark served on the board of directors of the Maine Professional Photographers Association and as its president in 2000. The relationships developed through the MPPA and other professional photography associations, enabled him to not only hone his own skills but those of others as well. By organizing and conducting seminars with the help of Fujifilm USA and other industry partners, Mark continued to share and promote the benefits of digital photography. Within a few years, Mark had closed his studio in Portland, ME and continued working with other studios in New England as a digital photography consultant.
Mark Myhaver relocated to Arizona in 2010 and refocused his photography to create fine art images with his love of landscape, nature, wildlife, scenic and a range of photography that serves to satisfy his passion and hopefully bring joy and happiness to others.
In Mark’s own words, 'It has been a blessing to me, to be able to see beauty in the natural world we live in and to be gifted with a way to present that beauty to others. If I can put a smile on your face, elicit feelings of peace, happiness, joy, kindness, awe or otherwise move you in some positive way through my photography, I have served my divinely gifted talent and passion well. It is my desire that others may enjoy my images as much as I do in creating them.”
So Mark’s life work continues with the support of those patrons who purchase his photos. Though Mark creates photography for the love of it, he is ever grateful for your support, as it is only through the sales of his work that he is able to continue producing the photos he shares with you.
