Portrait and Family Photography in Cheat Lake & Morgantown, West Virginia

61 images Created 27 Mar 2023

Welcome, I'm Mark Shephard, a West Virginia photographer home-based in the Cheat Lake area of Morgantown, and I look forward to our collaboration.

When working as a family and wedding photographer I am privileged to be able to capture everlasting memories for my clients. I would consider myself to be a traditional photog who aims to document the "decisive moment," sees the big picture as well as the details, and seeks to be a visual storyteller.

I offer several options for family sessions. Location lights may be set up at one or two locations for more controlled lighting. And as a former photojournalist I can also present an on the move documentary perspective (for active families). When I photograph weddings, I combine the two.

I also continue to offer my services as a business photographer in Morgantown, West Virginia, Southwest Pennsylvania, and beyond. I've had a unique blend of business, commercial, and corporate clients since 2000.

I studied visual communication at Ohio University, served as a Photographer's Mate in the U.S. Navy, and worked as a newspaper photojournalist before starting my own business in the Michiana area around South Bend, Ind., which was home before my wife, Jennifer, and I moved to the Cheat Lake area of Morgantown in 2016.

My life as a Morgantown photographer began when I was taken on as a correspondent for the Dominion Post, the newspaper in Morgantown. It was a good transitional gig as it allowed me to become familiar with the area. I continue to wear the hat when called upon to be a freelance photojournalist in West Virginia.

I encourage you to look around my site to get a better feeling of who I am as a business & commercial photographer, family & wedding photographer, freelance photojournalist, landscape & nature photographer, and portrait photographer.

Thanks for visiting. I hope to work with you soon!
