Who Is Mark Chamberlin?

Mark has had a camera in his hand since he was a little kid in Portland, Oregon. He completed a B.A. in Communications (public relations) and a M.A. Degree in Counseling Psychology. He has mentored with a number of highly successful photographers and attended numerous seminars and workshops all over the US. He has won numerous awards over his career. But none of that matters. What matters is his ability to work with people and create a comfortable, genuine expression.
Mark’s personality is very friendly, fun and relaxed. People get over their photo phobias, relax and have a great time while he does his magic. Mark’s best skill is his ability to get to know people, businesses and events very quickly. A Masters in Counseling trained him to ask questions and assimilate situations and relationships. He asks questions, listens carefully and exceeds at meeting and exceeding his client’s expectations.  .


While a native Oregonian, he and his wife Michele moved to Lansing, MI in 2010 and have enjoyed the wonders of this state. He has traveled extensively to Europe, Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean and of course most of the United States.


When he isn’t photographing a client, he is teaching photographers of all levels how to “Take a great photo intentionally!”  He is the owner and lead instructor at Smarter Pics Photography School.
