His interest in fashion photography continued during his college years and he would frequently photograph fraternity parties and other events. After he graduated from college in 1989 he moved to the Skagit Valley where he started his teaching career as a plastics teacher and opened his photography business. The next year he started teaching all photography classes and photographed a few weddings during the summer. Throughout the mid nineties his wedding photography business grew into stable viable business while he continued to teach photography classes at Burlington Edison High School. In the late nineties he built a new house with an incorporated photography studio built into his basement. This allowed him to create other product lines and allow for his business to grow.
Mark continued to teach high school and run his photography business until he could no longer keep up with his photography business and his teaching career together. He resigned from teaching in June of 2005 and now runs his photography business full time.
