Mark McCall is an award winning commercial & event photographer/speaker based in W. Texas. Mark's funny, whimsical approach when speaking to photography crowds is just as entertaining as it is informative. In business since 2016 McCall's, and later HallMark Professional Portraits, has become the most awarded studio in W. Texas. Mark received his first camera at the tender age of 8 years old, a gift from his grandmother for her purchase of mail order makeup. Formative years were spent riding his bike and horse through Horseshoe Canyon, just north of his hometown of Slaton, Tx, snapping photos of ranch life, wild horses, and native Americans. Farm neighbors began to ask Mark to photograph their families and as word grew, so did Mark's love of anything photographic. Besides photography, Mark enjoys tinkering in his garage, working on his electric '39 Ford pickup, fishing and yard work.
