I am a Connecticut based photographer. My passion for photography began 30 years ago and have been working in the industry since. I currently spend my time behind the camera creating Fashion & Beauty images for commercial clients as well as portrait commissions from individuals & families.

"When you meet a photographer that makes you smile--like a real smile--not a fake one to show how cool you are. Thank you @markjohnson.photo for being so sweet during #NYFW2016, and for sending me this pic. Instagram friends: if you're looking for a portrait #photographer that makes you feel like a million bucks, Mark is your guy!"

"When I wanted to start modeling, I had trouble figuring out where to start. I contacted some photographers with no luck until I met Mark Johnson, who helped me build my portfolio, launch a website, and even got me set up with my first modeling job. While I have had a lot of “highlights” from strutting the runway to seeing myself in calendars and magazines, I’d have to say meeting such a great photographer and friend was the best of them."

"Mark is the best"

"I️ got lucky to work with Mark Johnson! He is great. Amazingly professional and very talented photographer! He knows what he’s doing and he makes you feel so comfortable during photoshoots! He can get any emotion from you that he needs for the picture in a matter of seconds! Or maybe cos I’m very emotional too hahaha And he makes you look very good in pictures which is important cos I’ve worked with many photographers before and not all of them make you look good in the pictures haha He’s very passionate about what he’s doing and you can feel it! I️ hope to shoot with him more!"

"Mark, it truly was wonderful to meet you. I can see why you are such a great photographer...you are kind, patient, creative, funny, and so much more. Caelyn is my shyest child, but she was very comfortable with you. As soon as I got in the car when it was time to leave she said, "Mom, today was a great day, thank you so much."
