What is it about photography that made you decide you’d like to do it as a business?
I was given a camera for my 10th birthday and from that moment on I was hooked and I carried that camera with me everywhere and was forever pestering everyone and anyone to let me photograph them.
Over the years as my photography developed I found that I was being asked to photograph friends and family events and then my first wedding and it got to the point that I thought perhaps we can make a living out of this and Mezzino Photography was born.
What’s the best part of capturing a special event?
The best part of capturing a special event is the fact that I am creating wonderful memories for people and recording moments in time that will never happen again, our clients will be able to look back over the years and remember that particular day with great fondness and those memories will come flooding back all over again.
What do you look forward to most when working with your clients?
We get to meet so many people from all different walks of life and it is always fun to get to know a little about our clients, everybody has different ideas about how they would like us to photograph their event and we are always learning something that perhaps we can incorporate into our next shoot.
Your wife Gina helps you out at times, some people say working with your partner is challenging, would you agree or has it bought you closer together?
We work together well on a shoot, it is always good to get a different perspective to what I am seeing and Gina brings ideas from a female point of view that I may not see.
Of course there are always challenges but overall it has bought us closer together.
What do you look forward to most as you grow this business?
I am always looking to improve how the business runs and to improve my skills as a photographer so I look forward to seeing how both of those aspects are going to change over the years.

As an interstate couple getting married (live in WA but getting married in SA) we put the shout out that we were looking for a photographer who could understand our situation, be great with communication and who could work without having a formal introduction.
From the very first interaction with Mark we were put at ease, he was one of the very few photographers who took the time to call us instead of just sending through a generic pricelist, which was huge for us.
He was very easy to work with and was able to adopt tactics into the day to help not only the kids focus on the camera but the groom also.
If your the type of person who just wants to relive the photo moments quickly then no need to worry, Mark had a selection of photos sent to us within a day and the entire package within the week. We can't fault his work or his efficiency and we are really happy with the results.
