Welcome to my humble site. My name is Mark, and I run 9art. I love what I do. That passion and my desire to constantly improve my craft, makes me, hopefully, a pretty decent photographer. Which is good since I'm pretty sure I wouldn't be able to do anything else. :)
Me in a nutshell:: I have a beard, a wife, and two tiny human beings back at home. They're all pretty adorable (well, maybe not the beard). I love Jesus and enjoy people a lot. I also enjoy having a studio downtown in a little city named Joplin, MO that's starting to think about being a big city.
Not sure if you want me to be your photographer? Take a look around my site, my blog, my facebook page... get a feel for my photography. I'm an honest believer that your work should speak for itself. If my style- which I'd describe as quirky, fun, and vibrant- unquestionably speaks to you and you'd like to collaborate, then shoot me a line and we'll talk. Can't wait to meet you!
In the meanwhile, check out one of the links below that may give you a better idea of what a 9art session looks like and how I work as a photographer. Contact me if you have questions that you don't see answered here!
AFTER the session... (if your'e done a family, couples', or senior session w/ us, here's what to expect next!)
