Mark offered the first nude & boudoir photography studio in Calgary and remains the best. His imaginative portraits expand beyond the typical “lingerie and satin sheets” boudoir. Mark’s creatively passionate presentation of women has earned him the honour of being the most awarded photographer in his niche in Canada. Possibly North America.


She is Making Me Laugh

She is Making Me Laugh

Really, my staff is looking at me like I have become unhinged. Let me explain.

Usually my nude or lingerie images are arty or sensual, fun with big grins, or dramatic. But today I am going through images from our  Wet ‘n’ Wild Water Set Session Some of these are hilarious! I came across a cache of images that caught the humorous moment.

For example, Ann Marie Hunter is sitting in this clear inflatable pool chair floating in our set. She is trying to arch just a little more for the effect and the chair starts to go over backwards. Her face becomes an expressive canvas of her thoughts. As she starts to roll over, you can see her realizing what is happening, trying to figure out how she can save herself. Then this huge grin as she decides to just go with it. That was the shot I got.

Early in our development of the water set we had not perfected things. One day the hot water feed to our water hose broke, so we had to revert to the cold outside water tap or stop for the day. Our bold clients decided to continue on with the very cold water. After all, they had the makeup, they were already wet, so heck yeah, go for it.
