Great working with such nice people...
"Mark is the best! Great Photographer and very easy to work with."
"Mark Swirsky is one of the most talented photographers I have ever met. I have used his expertise for over 30 years!"
"I found Mark from the a friend and he was amazing to work with; nice, friendly, and most of all captured great pictures. He was practically invisible during our wedding reception and got the best shot of guests and us. He was very prompt at getting our cd to us. We would definitely use his services again."
"I hired Mark for some photos of myself and my daughter. Each photo is breathtaking and I always receive comments when I have visitors in my home. As a single mom, my bond with my daughter is precious and Mark was able to capture that essence in each photo that I will cherish forever. He is a professional with an exceptional ability to put his subjects at ease so their personalities are captured in every shot. I loved his work so much that most of my favorite shots were blown up in poster size and framed and hang in many rooms in my home. Each image tells a story and I feel it takes a talented professional to capture the relationship within the photo. Great to work with, reasonably priced, A+ photography!"
"Mark is an experienced photographer with all around excellent service. He has a great eye for producing great shots."
"Mark is an amazing photographer. He's taken some fabulous pictures of my family. Over the years, he's developed our photos, restored our old family photos and transferred our old home movies onto DVDs. Mark is easy to work with and a true professional.
"Mark took my surprise engagement photos. He did an amazing job! His crowd control was phenomenal as my wife's parents and siblings were involved as well. Easy to talk to and very affordable! Definitely would hire again!!!"
"Mark was professional and personable. We loved our wedding pictures!"
"I know Mark for over 20 years and have been a steady customer. From film and slides, to now digital and web based, Mark has worked/collaborated with me on many projects. I could not have been more pleased at the ease of communication, his scope of knowledge and the perfection of finished work. In the past, he has photographed all my art work, and, built a wonderful website to showcase the work. Mark continues to photograph my work, and has also printed large...24"x16" copies of paintings, photos and collage with perfect color replication on beautiful paper. He also photographed my wedding and I have a wonderful variety of posed and candid shots. His easy smile, work ethic and attention to detail are immediately apparent. Mark is a true professional."
"Mark photographed our first reunion of 3 generations of family members, a total of 51 people from all over the world. Besides taking great candid and formal photos, Mark instantly became our 52nd member- he blended in so easily and was not at all intrusive. He thoroughly enjoyed himself and we all immensely enjoyed having him with us. Besides being a great photographer, he has a great personality."
"I have not hired Mark (yet) as a photographer, but I met him at a public event where he was taking photos. I ended up in one of them, and he graciously sent a copy to my email. That gesture prompted me to look him up and see some of his work. Very Impressive! One look at the samples on his profile will convince you. Needless to say, his gentlemanly attitude speaks very well of his character."
"Mark is an excellent photographer. He has a great eye and is great at family portraits."
"We have used Mark as our photographer on many occasions. He has always been very professional and extremely easy to work with. Our kids always have felt very at ease with him - even when they were young and could get a bit fussy, Mark always seemed to know how to reach them. I would highly recommend Mark!"
"Was our wedding photographer. Took the most beautiful candids, truly captured the most beautiful moments. Thank you Mark!"
"Mark has worked with our family for ten years, taking annual portraits since our daughters were toddlers. His eye for what makes the perfect shot is incredible. He has an obvious passion for what he does. He has chased our dogs and our children around streams, fields, barns etc, and everyone is having fun! This is how he captures the personality in each candid. So many people comment on my family pictures. They always say wow what beautiful photographs. And then they ask who took then. Thank you Mark!"
"I have used Mark on a couple of different occasions. We did a family portrait and also pictures for my daughter's graduation. He was very professional and timely. The pictures were ready when he said they would be. But most importantly he takes beautiful pictures. I am so grateful to him for the photos he took of my Mom especially. These pictures have become some of my most treasured pocesssions. I would definitely use him again and again."
"Mark has been our go to person for years ~ just for regular printing back in the day, and then a fantastic photo shoot. I just had some photo's from an a photo shoot enlarged for a gallery wall. The day I requested them, he had them ready. When I was too busy to pick them up, he delivered them! The quality of his work is exceptional and he is also fun to work with!"
"Mark did an outdoor family photograph for us with many moving parts, such as crying babies and a dog. He did it all with calm efficiency and got a lovely portrait with everyone looking good. We were very pleased."
"Mark has been our family photographer for over 40 years. His creativity, style and quality are the best. We wouldn't think of having anyone other than Mark take our special occasion and family photos."
"When someone loves his profession, and Mark truly does, he's the one for us! Nice young man with remarkable talents. We're very happy with everything he's ever done for us."
"We had Mark Swirsky Photography for our wedding two years ago and couldn't have been happier with the photographer (and the work she did) Mark had assigned to us on our very special day. Our pictures turned out beautifully!! I would highly recommend Mark Swirsky for any special event!"

"Mark was our wedding photographer, and we couldn't be happier with his work! We hardly knew he was there, and he took so many wonderful images. He was very easy to work with before, during and after the event. We enthusiastically recommend him!"
"Mark does a wonderful job of bringing the desired emotion to the moment and capturing it."
Just sent the proofs to my family and we all want giant poster-size copies of every shot! We'll try to narrow it down, though, and I'll loop back to you with a list. Thank you so much for capturing our wonderful family time together!
We just wanted to say thank you so much for capturing our special day, you did a wonderful job! Thank you for your time! You have an eye and a feel for people, and again thank you. We're going to try and make it down maybe today or this weekend for the picture discs..have a wonderful day :-)

My husband and I were married in December at an inn in Lenox. I was originally a little worried about the photos because of the intimate space and the lighting… a touch of the bridal jitters that completely subsided when I went to review my prints the very next day! Mark's keen lens captured the evening in remarkable style. On top of that, he was patient, easy to work with, and his attention to detail gave us just the shots we were looking for. My wedding album continues to come to life whenever I relive my special day.
Mark shot the concert event during which we recorded my fourth album, "Live at The Guthrie Center". The CD insert features his work exclusively. He is a man devoted to his work/love of photography, and it shows in the images he captures. Live performance photography is extremely challenging in many ways… there are no do-overs. Simply put, he takes the best performance shots I've seen…… all that, and we hardly even knew he was there.
Thank you SO much, Mark. The photos are beautiful - now we have to sit down and figure out what we're going to get and how many! You don't make it easy, as there are so many good ones!
The Photo Shop has developed pictures for our family for many years. Recently Mark came to our house to take pictures of our three young children. We wanted to capture the joy and delight of our children - alone, with each other, and with their grandmother. Mark was very good at getting them to cooperate and getting them to not "pose" for the camera. Mark exceeded our expectations in not only capturing the beauty in our children, but their expression of life. We highly recommend Mark without any reservation.
We love Mark's work. He's a consummate professional, very responsive and considerate. We go back to him every year. He puts out a great product and everybody has fun in the process. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to my friends and colleagues.
Hi Mark - You are Speedy Gonzalez… I appreciate it very much. Lots and lots of great shots, something for everyone!
Hey Mark, Joe shared your great photos with us the night after the Hinsdale gig at our "band party" … Terrific work, man! The photos put us right back into the night before.
Thank you so much for the wonderful photo shoot of my family for my parent's 50th wedding anniversary this past Friday. It was a fantastic experience for all of us. A true testament to you and your work.
Thank you so much for coming last weekend. We really enjoyed you and you were the perfect photographer for our wedding.
Thanks again for everything - we really, really appreciate all you've done. You really did an awesome job, especially capturing our guests, which as you know, were the shots we really wanted. Everyone especially likes the pic with the veil blowing all over my dad.
Janis and I would like to thank you for taking the photographs at our wedding; you certainly helped make it a lively and very special event. We hope that you enjoyed yourself, and we are looking forward to seeing the proofs.
"Mark Swirsky took some beautiful portraits of my family. He has a way of putting you at ease and getting very natural and beautiful photos that you will treasure forever."
Thank you for being the photographer at Clarissa and Brian's wedding. Then pictures came out great. It's hard to pick our favorites - they are all so good. I recommend you to all my friends for their special functions. Great job, well done.
Mark has a way of capturing the setting and the kids so that the memories of the places in the Berkshires and those teen years of the kids mesh into one! He was flexible in a meeting place and time, and coordinated things perfectly so that a great birthday gift was attained. Thanks, Mark!

Mark has a way of capturing the very essence of a live performance in his photography. I can almost hear our music emanating from each photograph. He even makes me look good these days in photos - now that's a testimony!

Just sent these to my family and we all want giant poster-sized copies of every shot! We'll try to narrow it down, though, and I'll loop back to you with a list. Thank you so much for capturing our wonderful family time together!
We were so pleased with Mark's photography at our wedding. He caught many wonderful moments and iterations on film, while remaining unobtrusive. He's responsive, easy to work with, and quick -- and his work is beautiful!
Mark is a true professional. His extensive knowledge of photography, both in the studio and out, makes for a perfect working relationship.
Mark Swirsky was the photographer at the release party of my most recent album. I couldn't believe how many great shots he got! He managed to capture all of the emotion of the fun, and also of the poignant moments of the evening. Not only am I impressed by the number of great photos he get at one event, but of the high quality. Top of the line. And it never felt like someone was sitting there taking pictures. Mark is a true pro, and a pleasure to work with!
Mark is so nice, I have so much fun when he takes my picture.

During the Highwaymen's first performance at The Guthrie Center a couple of years ago, we noticed a rather energetic audience member moving about the room and taking a serious number of photos of us. It was, of course Mark Swirsky, and we were so pleased with what he created that night that we asked him to come back the next year and do some more formal shots.. You can see the results on our website: www.originalhighwaymen.com
Great job. I was able to let everyone who attended my party view pictures of the memorable event. I think it worked very well. I highly recommend your services.
Mark took stunning pictures of my less-than-cooperative 2-year-old. He has a great eye in terms of color and backdrops and lots of patience.
