Mark A. Steele Photography Inc. is a Columbus, Ohio based, full-service retail interior/architecture photographer specializing in creating images for a variety of uses, including editorial, marketing, public relations and advertising. I collaborate with my clients to craft innovative and creative photography that will best represent their retail environments.

I photograph the design intent of retail and branded spaces. You can read about my views on this style of photography in this ARE's Retail Environments Magazine here.

Having spent nearly 12 years as an in-house photographer for the internationally recognized design firm Fitch, I know how to define (and re-define) visual documentation, as well as deliver high quality images in tight timeframes. I help you express your vision. My images help you get attention as my work has been featured on many covers and articles of the leading retail design trade publications. I also have helped my clients garner more than 140 awards within leading design competitions!

As you browse the images in my portfolio, please take notice of the way I show projects in their entirety. My varied clients have differing needs to show from design, architecture, lighting, fixturing, graphics and others. This approach to my portfolio allows the viewer to see how I address these requests through complete projects. Enjoy!

Beyond the architecture and interiors portfolio, my corporate or editorial work is both vibrant and compelling. The People section of the portfolio shows how I approach people on location, in the studio or at work. I provide imagery to agencies and companies in all sectors of today’s economy. Education, Healthcare and Fitness are featured, as well as traditional corporate and industrial photography.

I’m still rooted in landscape photography, my blog posts frequently feature landscapes from vacations. Though inspired by Edwin Weston and Ansel Adams, my days of hiking with a heavy tripod and view camera are over. The gear has changed, my love for being outside and capturing nature is stronger than ever. Recent trips to Yosemite, Monterrey, Santa Fe and the Badlands have provided me an amazing canvas. You can browse my past blog posts to view some of my landscape work.
