"Working with Mark Gideon as a photographer is a complete experience. He produces the most artistic compositions along with bright photos with rich color and deep contrast. I have had him photograph many of my stunningly beautiful listings and his photos seem to capture all of the essence and beauty of the home and setting. Mark is also a true joy to work with and makes the experience a fun and creative adventure. I will continue to work with Mark and I would recommend him to anyone wanting a beautiful and artistic outcome with their photos."

I recently engaged Mark Gideon to photograph the exterior of one of our recent commercial storefront projects for web and print. Mark was careful to shoot the store in the early morning hours so traffic and sun did not interfere with his work. He captured the unique design features of the project and was very timely with delivering the photographs to us. I’m extremely pleased with the photographs and I highly recommend Mark for architectural and real estate photography.

When I first engaged Mark’s services my reaction was “Wow!”  Mark’s years as a photographer and licensed broker give him a unique set of skills.  He can shoot a home without my presence – saving me time.  Mark has a quick turn around so I can get the pictures on the MLS immediately.  Having sold homes himself in the past, Mark has an eye for taking images that show the house at its best.  I recommend Mark for your next listing without hesitation.

You took that AWESOME portrait of me and my black and white pit bull Clover at Fleet Week. I hope you want to contact me because you want to enter it into a contest or something! Hopefully you don't mind (I gave you credit all over the place) but I made this my FB profile photo. Everyone LOVES it. I wish you'd digitally autograph it and send me a copy---I'll replace the one I used with one you signed...assuming you don't mind that I used it? I'm very sensitive about ripping off other artists, and that's the LAST thing I want to do.I actually got goosebumps when I saw your photo, as it just perfectly captures that relationship between us!

I have had the pleasure of working with Gideon Foto twice at events I participated in.  Both experiences were excellent.  As a K9 handler for State and County search and rescue organizations, I appreciated his professional manner and presence as I worked with my dog.  Truly, I hardly knew he was around getting his shots, only to be presented with beautiful photos afterward.   I saw a wonderful quality in the still shots of my dog and the actions photos were just terrific.  Thank you Mark  and Gideon Foto for capturing some great moments for me.
