Mark is one of those people who seems to be good at most things. Rarely have I worked with someone who has oodles of creativity, a sound strategic and logical brain, with technical skills to boot. As an award-winning photographer, Mark has naturally provided breath-taking photography for my brand but has also designed and built our website, produced, filmed, scripted and directed brand films for us
, and has been an invaluable strategic sound-board for our marketing activity. He doesn't seem to sleep, manages to deliver high-quality work on time and on budget. What's more, his creative work is insightful, nuanced and beautifully crafted. I can't recommend Mark enough.

I have worked with Mark on several creative projects so as to refresh and update my website together with the production of a promotional video that highlights the services I offer
. With each of the briefs, he has quickly grasped my vision and understood exactly what is required, through detailed research and meticulous planning.
At all times he has put me at ease, with his personable manner and willingness to go that extra mile and beyond. I would highly recommend Mark for his creative services and depth of knowledge.

Mark Esper's team were fantastic. They showed up with a concept and a mastery of process which allowed me to focus on my ideas, needs and performance and also find both my voice and smile whilst in the spotlight. Throughout the shoot, they were professional, focused, creative and so much more. Always supportive and patient, they reassured me and let me be in the moment when I needed to be. For a video to be shot in both in English and in German, this was quite a feat, all to be done in one day.
I was more than satisfied with the experience and when I saw the final videos I was blown away. They were even better than I could have hoped for. Definitely my choice for future video projects, hands down.

As the CEO of leading German cigar retailer Noblego, I first had the pleasure of working with Mark on a full-page advertisement for renowned Cigar Journal Magazine. Given that this was our first appearance in print media, we had yet to develop how we should approach their readers, what message to convey and what the potential of our advert could be.
However, by asking all the right questions, Mark quickly developed a vision of how our advertisement could look. Working together with his crew, they diligently planned a shoot, and with his tremendous guidance, it quickly resulted in some astonishing results. Within half a day, not only had we produced the necessary photographs for the ad, but we had also shot a short, brand identity video(which Mark suggested, as the synergies of doing both at the same time seemed to be too good an opportunity to miss).
Meeting for the final review, I was shocked. With only very little input regarding either the advert or video's content, their arrangement and what copy should be used, Mark had created something that far exceeded my expectations. Not only was this a beautiful campaign with beautiful imagery, but also one that was full of well-thought-out details.
Mark’s vast experience in this field, his sense for beauty and detail, together with all the diligent research he did and all the ideas he contributed, leave me no doubt that we'll be happily working with him again in the future.

I have worked with Mark Esper on countless projects over the years, and each and every one has been an absolute pleasure as a result. Whatever the project, Mark’s meticulous preparation, eye for detail, and work ethic, are second to none. Combined with his innate talent for photographic composition and an unselfish generous nature, he’s also the ideal person from whom to learn from. I cannot recommend him highly enough.

Mark Esper is a huge talent. From approaching the script work to the final colour grade, he is heavily involved with good idea after great idea. He listens, responds and directs with clarity and collaborative intent. I was pleasantly surprised how detailed and thought through his vision was right up until “that’s a wrap”.

Mark is an amazing, creative image-maker full stop. What’s better is that he’s a proper pleasure to work with, dedicated, reliable and quick. A real professional and a real gent to boot. Highly recommended.

I have known and worked with Mark for a while now and I always admire how he always manages the team. He makes sure everything is clear beforehand, that everyone knows the terms, conditions, artistic brief and constraint of a project, and that everyone has what they need to work properly. For me it's great as I can prep accordingly, share any concerns and know that the project will unfold smoothly. Mark has a great artistic sense, linked to a great business sense. This is a really powerful and winning combination for any client.

I was Mark's editor on his photo book project: "Conflicted: London's Faces of Protest
". Over a period of several months, we sorted through hundreds of photos to create a powerful narrative for the demonstrations he'd shot. Each photo had to stand on its own and also contribute to a chaptered story. Mark never settles for second best. He's an extraordinary person with many talents who achieves excellence in any project he undertakes. Expect great work from a smart man.
