Mark Zaig Photography
Photography of people, products, property & events
Welcome to markzaigphotography.co.uk. This is a temporary/work-in-progess site, so please check back soon to see the finished site. In the meantime, here is a sample gallery of photographs I have taken covering a range of subjects, and a brief outline of the types of photography I cover.
Headshot & portrait photography
People need decent headshots for all sorts of reasons. Actors and musicians need them for profiles and publicity, business people for CVs, company websites and PR purposes. Individuals use them for social media and dating websites. Headshots can be taken indoors or outdoors at a location that suits you (or I can suggest good locations) or in the studio if that's the look you want. Portraits can be anything from head and shoulders to full length depending on your requirement. I also shoot "Polaroids/Digitals" for models.
Live performance musician portraits
One of the areas I have done a lot of work in is live performance musician portraits. For these I will come to one (or more if you require it) of your gigs and take pictures. Ideally, the venue should have good stage lighting, but I am experienced in working in "poor-light" situations.
The food photography I do is primarily for restaurant advertising, reviews and websites, but also produce work for editorial or book purposes. For restaurant work I usually work on location at the restaurant with a portable studio set-up and often combine these shoots with interior and exterior photography of the restaurant itself.
Interior & exterior property photography
I photograph both commercial interiors such as offices, factories, nightclubs, hotels, shops and restaurants, and residential property interiors for editorial and advertising purposes.
Live music is one of my main areas of event photography, but I also work at PR events, conferences, corporate entertainment, trade shows, seminars, night clubs, parties etc.

Mark Zaig is a freelance commercial photographer based in Truro, TR1, Cornwall, UK.
I have had a life-long passion for photography since being a teenager, processing and printing my own black & white photographs in a "darkroom in the bathroom", and I still keep a camera with me almost all the time.
Having subsequently been through art school, Foundation in Art & Design at Kingston, Graphic Design at LCP (now London College of Communication) and working for many years as a graphic and website designer, often art directing photo shoots and manipulating photographs in Photoshop, I have worked with and around photography most of my working life to some degree.
My increasing involvement with the photographic content of my design work became a natural progression to taking the photographs myself, with photography now being the major part of my work (I still do some design work).
This experience has made me a photographer that has an excellent understanding of the purpose of the image required and the use of images both on the page (print or digital), in relation to layout, style, colour and typography, and in branding.
