"He's the T-Rex of Event Photography..
gets in there and grabs the throat of
whatever needs to be taken and preserved
via digital imaging .. Jim Mark is the
only choice when it comes to capturing
an important event, function..

(continued op-page)


(Cont')  He (Jim
Mark) makes it happen.. and he'll never
embarrass or cause problems if by
chance he gets a 'shot' of something that
could compromise, discredit a person
or persons..
People trust Jim Mark and his artistic
photo essay abilities.."

~Robert 'Fish' Fisher_


"An 'artist beyond the call', he (Jim Mark) works an
EVENT the way General Patton worked his
magic on the heroic American soldiers of an era
long gone but not forgotten... not so much as 'Blood
and Guts' as: 'It's Now or Never to Participate in
your Life and show the World to Come - We Did
It with a Smile'. No, Artist Jim Mark is more like
Salvador Dali than any notable artist of the last
300 years" - John Knott, former CIA Officer,
 Motivational Speaker and lifelong friend
