Making a living one click of the shutter at a time.
Job Photographer / Mark Fleming Photography
Lives In The West End
I am a Portland-based editorial and commercial photographer. For nearly two decades, I have been making pictures for everyone from national publications to my next door neighbor. During that time, I have clicked the shutter at 5,000 feet, deep in the Maine the woods, inches from a speeding car, looking over the Shanghai skyline, in the snow, the sun, and the rain. I love my job!
I have called the Pine Tree State home for most of my life. However, despite my best efforts, I am not a true 'Mainer.' I was born in Hartford, Connecticut, the same city as the Colt revolver.
I have a passionate love affair with the outdoors and will do anything I can to indulge this tryst. I am an avid cyclist, runner, and will hike/climb anything that doesn't require an oxygen tank. I spend more time in my kitchen than any other room, I only read books I can't put down, and I have made a pact with my 2005 Nissan Xterra to rack up more miles on dirt than pavement.
Why did you choose Portland? No matter how far I travel, it's the only place that feels like home.
What do you like to do with out-of-towners? Eat. Portland is home to some of the best food on the East Coast. From food trucks to fine dining we are known as the foodiest little city around!
I'm a freelance writer, specializing in social satire and outrageous observations.
