Eric Marks combines two great qualities that are sometimes hard to find together in commercial photography – dependability and creativity. If Eric says he is going to be there to shoot your project – he is on-time, prepared, and the consummate professional. And creativity? Eric is a gifted storyteller and has an amazing eye for crafting and creating imaginative images that emotionally connect with the viewer. Proud to have worked with Eric and hope to do so again very soon.

"We hired Eric to examine nearly 200 old photos that had been in a storage unit. He painstakingly removed photos from frames, inspected each to determine its authenticity, researched to find where originals may exist, and categorized and inventoried each piece. It was clear Eric had done this work before - his expertise was evident. A consummate professional! We will be bringing him back for another phase of work."

"The photos you took of my rarest three guitars in the Vault were amazing. They are amongst the top 20 rarest electric guitars in the world. The extensive photos taken were truly amazing and in fact the best guitar photos I have ever seen. Thanks again for the expert photography!!!"

Owner, Bizarre Guitar Inc. 


“We worked with Eric on an organ and tissue donation education campaign featuring Reno Mayor Hillary Schieve. Eric was a pleasure before, during, and after the shoot. The photos were excellent; they were exactly what our creative team needed. I’d definitely recommend Eric’s services. He’s timely and talented.”

"Eric Marks is a great photographer. I've been glad to have him shooting for the Reno News & Review and FatalEncounters.org. He achieves at anything to which he sets his mind." 

- D. Brian Burghart 

Executive Editor "Reno News and Review" & Executive Director at Fatal Encounters  


"Eric Marks has a remarkable photographic range fueled by an acute sense of curiosity. Requisite qualities for the narrative images he renders. His street photographs reveal an artist with the heart of a storyteller and the grit of a detective. His lens digs for the truths we want to look away from, while discovering beauty we too often miss. His surveys of Reno have captured something we'd lost along the way in our pages: the soul of the city and its invisible shapes and citizenry."

"This man gave 1000%" - a comment from my Officiator. When even the man marrying us says that, you can only imagine the impact Eric Marks' made on the rest of the guests. Eric was indeed capturing the most magnificent event of my life, but not only with his brilliant view, but with his charisma, his leadership, his kindness, and frankly his willingness to stop at NOTHING to create the artistry I had envisioned. Yes, he surpassed my expectations (as an artist myself, that is a challenge alone) but more significantly, he allowed my favorite people in the world to become part of history in our beloved city. And then he became one of us.

"As an adjunct professor at the University of Nevada, Reno Reynolds School of Journalism, I have had the opportunity to work with hundreds of students over the years. Eric Marks is one of my most memorable. Typically, English students in journalism classes take a little time to adjust. Eric jumped in with both feet and embraced the class with enthusiasm. His extensive background (in education and life experiences) caused him to challenge me constantly, which is something I appreciate very much. He had the maturity to ask good, insightful questions, but always in a respectful manner. His papers, along with the questions he asked in class, helped me to see issues (and the world) in different ways. I always learned from him, as I’m sure my other students did as well. Since the completion of the class, I’ve had the opportunity to work with him in a professional environment, as photographer and a photographer’s assistant to one of the top talents in Northern Nevada. I’ve always been impressed with his professionalism, talent and respect for his environment. He knows how to adapt to wherever he is, while still maintaining his individuality – that is a rare combination in the world today. I believe students would be lucky to have Eric Marks guiding them into the professional world. And I’d be happy to discuss him, and his qualifications, further."

"Eric Marks captured our Steampunk group's/sub-culture's eclectic & difficult to describe style in excellently composed close up & action/posed shots. Eric is highly accommodating & a pleasure to be around, he works fast staying in the moment with his excellent energy & vibe. Highly recommended!"  

- Dusty Bacon 

High Desert Steam Punk Association.  


"Eric was absolutely amazing! He got to the venue shortly after I did (I got there at 11. He was there around noon. My wedding started at 5). He stayed until we left. He was so professional and constantly made us laugh. He is incredibly accommodating to what sort of pictures the bride and groom want. He was very well organized. Incredibly respectful to everyone. Great with kids and their missed nap time mood swings. We highly recommend Eric Marks Photography!"  

- Mollie Simi 


"My introduction to Eric Marks was in 2011 as my student at the University of Nevada, Reno, in my Art 235, Photographic Lighting. He volunteered as lab assistant for that class, and was a great asset in that role. Eric excelled in photographic lighting and exhibited passion and commitment to photography. His work has evolved and matured, and I am very pleased to have Eric as a valued employee in my studio for the last four years. As photography instructor Eric Marks will bring creativity and dedication to his students. I highly recommend him."

"My wife and I found out very quickly that there is a HUGE difference between amateur vs. professional photography. From the quality of the photos to the quality of the service, Eric Marks Photography exceeded all of our expectations. Want a personalized experience? How about a special sunset shoot just hours after the ceremony. Those memories alone will be treasured for the rest of our lives, but the pics....priceless!!! Thank you Eric Marks Photography, we could not have asked for a better experience on our special day!" 

- Josh Peterson 


We had an idea in mind for what we wanted our first professional family photoshoot to look like, and working with Eric completely surpassed my expectations. We were blown away with the photos. Not only did we get some beautiful shots of the family, we also got some amazing individual portraits of our two year old son. Eric worked with each of us and coached us through how to pose in each shot while still taking into consideration the style of photos we wanted. We are so happy to have found a photographer who really captured our family in the most beautiful way."

"I had a great experience working with Eric Marks. He was punctual, provided all of the equipment, and took great photos. I have used the head-shots that he took for a number of auditions and productions, with great success! I would recommend Eric to anyone who is looking to have professional photos done."  

- Dominique Kent 



"I can't say thank you enough to Eric for our amazing photos! Eric listened to what we envisioned, and went above and beyond to make sure we had beautiful pictures as well as a stressfree wedding. He is very professional, talented, and HIGHLY recommended!" 

- Theresa Norris 


"Eric is a very easy guy to work with. Knowledgeable about his field and took a lot of great photos for our band! Would love to work with him again in the future."
