What my clients say...

‘We have used Mark and his team for several years on mainly product-based photography for website, brochure, and press release production. They always completely understand our brief and their shots are always well taken, and have often included custom backgrounds to meet specific needs. The quality of their images definitely helps us to gain editorial coverage in some publications. They have always been able to work within our deadlines and I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Mark Swallow Photography to others as we will definitely continue to use them for future projects.’
