Welcome to Santa Cruz Imagery !! My name is Mark Whitney and this is my awesome wife Lisa! I have 2 kids of my own living with me + 2 that we have basically adopted we care and love them dearly! I Have been shooting seriously since 1996. I started with sunrises, sunsets, Yosemite, and misc. Went back to Cabrillo College and received straight A's in Beginning Computer, all Photography Classes, Digital Photography, Graphic Design. I LOVED IT!! I hadn't been in a Photo Lab since High School... I always had it in the back of my head that I wanted more Photography Classes. To make a long story short I started shooting Pro Surfers in Santa Cruz and it wasn't long after that before I had all the right equipment that a Surf Photographer needs. I submitted to Surfing Magazine and they wanted me as one of there Photographer's, so I shot for them for about 7 years. I also did ads with my Surfing images from Oneil's, Billabong, Reef, Gotcha, Anarchy, and Misc. I also had my Photos in other Major Publications like Surfer, TransWorld Surf, and Surfing Magazine from overseas. After 7 years I started pointing my lenses in other directions Weddings, Family Portraits, Sports, Landscapes basically anything that interest me.
