About Mark


Mark Behrens has been shooting high-quality photographs for over twenty years. Always interested in teaching others the art of good photography, he began conducting workshops emphasizing the various aspects of photography. These workshops have now been attended by thousands of amateur and professional photographers from around the world. As well, he reaches thousands of photographers through his website, www.Lightingasylum.com.

Whether in a college classroom or at his latest workshop, Mark relies on a down-to-earth style to teach basic and advanced photographic techniques. He can never be found without a camera, believing that every good photographer’s camera should become an extension of themselves.


On any given day he may be found working with a fashion designer shooting their latest creations, photographing commercially for the automotive and other industries, or taking contemporary family portraits. Mark’s recent work has included working with a number of musicians, A-list celebrities and professional athletes.

When not working in his studio or conducting workshops, Mark spends most of his free time with his wife and their four children. Together, they enjoy boating, camping, hiking and riding quads in the mountains near their home in Redding, California.


As always, feel free to contact me with any questions,
