Mark DeLong: Master Of Perfection
Mark DeLong sees in still and in motion, and he is as meticulous as he is creative through all aspects of both
|This Article Features Photo Zoom|
DeLong is at the cutting edge of the transmedia world, providing multiple visual services. Not every still shooter can "see" in motion. DeLong can. At the core, he's an extremely solid photographer. This creates the foundation for powerful motion pictures. He uses gear as diverse as ultra-high-resolution Phase One still camera systems to RED EPIC and ARRI ALEXA motion outfits.
With bases in Nashville, Miami, Los Angeles and New York, DeLong is involved in every aspect of a shoot and makes each photograph personal by working on it from preproduction through to the creative retouching and compositing of the final still image or edit of the video project.
DPP: You're known for being very involved in a production from concept to conclusion. Why this approach?
DPP: How do you base yourself in four places at the same time?
DeLong: We're in the air a lot. We own a studio in Nashville, then rent ones in the other markets when needed. Nashville is a nice place to regroup and work on the pre- and postproduction of projects. My wife, Melissa, is involved in the sales and production. She's a go-getter. We both really put heart and soul into what we do. We really care about every client and everything that we do. I think that can come across in the end product.
DPP: How did you learn your craft?
