Mark Hanson is a 6’ 2” star outside hitter for the Myers Park Mustangs girls varsity volleyball team.

At least that’s how it feels, since he attends every game to watch his two daughters, Ashlyn and Alexa, play for the team.

But in reality, he is a commercial photographer with degrees in Media Advertising and Broadcast production (Motion) who loves to captures those in-between moments, the unscripted and fun moments that happen around the scripted shots. Mark focuses primarily on lifestyle and advertising campaigns. He has been taking pictures since he was in 7th grade, getting paid for it since he was 16, and it never gets old!

He is based out of Charlotte (home of the Mustangs. Go Mustangs!) New York and Los Angeles.  

One last thing:  Evel Knievel was one of the reasons Mark became a photographer. Ask him about it when you meet.
