Photographer/ Illustrator Mark D’Harlingue (de har ling) www.modgrafx.com My 20 years experience in commercial photography and high-level experience in photo editing, coupled with my graphic design background will make me an excellent source for all of your photographic needs. My extensive experience in shooting both studio and location productions for marketing applications will fill the needs of your projects. My retouching and manipulating skills are outstanding, as are my strong customer service and organizational skills. I have a BFA in Illustration and Graphic Design. I spent my early professional career coming up through the photographic ranks. Starting out as a darkroom technician, printing for commercial photographers and working as an assistant to a number of photographers in a variety of specialties. The Digital revolution sent me back to school to upgrade my skills both as a photographer and illustrator. Not only re-learning the craft of photography but finally getting to blend my skills as a designer, painter and draftsman together. My post-production experience in Photoshop gives me unprecedented control of the new photographic medium. Over my 30 years of experience I have worn many hats in the commercial imaging field, photographer, illustrator, graphic designer, color/image specialist for catalog production, and quality assurance for the printing industry. These all give me insight into the abilities and limitations of the medium. I’m a team player with the ability to take the vision of others and make it a reality; the flexibility to make changes on the fly; and the experience to put more options on the table. In 2016 I decided to open my own imaging studio to provide commercial imaging for small to mid sized businesses in the St. Louis region.
