Mark McCall operates a boutique studio in the Historical District in downtown Lubbock Texas specializing in wedding, portrait and commercial photography. Mark's lifelong love affair with photography began in 1974 at the tender age of 8 when he spotted a calendar at the grocery store checkout. After begging for the calendar, full of beautifully captured landscapes, mountains and rivers, the die was cast. Mark’s Grandmother noticed his interest in photography almost immediately. She presented him with a plastic, 35mm camera that she’d received for a minimum purchase of mail order makeup. Opening its doors in July 1996, McCall's was one of the first fully digitally integrated studios in Texas and continues to be a leader in capture, digital file handing, file preparation and enhancement. Mark holds all three degrees offered by the Professional Photographers of America as well as six Photographic Fellowships. Mark was the 2014 President of the Texas Professional Photographers Assoc. and continues to serve the Association as Chairman of the TPPA Print Competition Committee and social media manager. Mark also served on PPA’s Certification Committee that wrote the test that all photographers must take to become Certified Professional Photographers. June 2017, Mark was awarded PPA’s National Award in Houston Tx., the highest honor a PPA Affiliate can bestow upon a member photographer. His client list includes Texas Tech University, Huggies, Bell Helicopter, Pioneer Audio Systems, Tama Drums, PETA, Ford, Sherwin Williams, Daktronics, Proctor and Gamble, Taco Villa, Wells Fargo and many more.
