New Work 2014

I’ve been taking photos for as long as I can remember. I’ve been lucky enough to have always made my living in photography either working in the photo processing end of the business, as a professional photographer and now as a camera trainer for Panasonic. Thank you for looking and hopefully coming back for updates.

To see more photos check out my website at www.marktoalphotography.com or my Lumix image site at www.mtoallumiximages.wordpress.com

 Also check out our blog of Portland restaurants at http://alphabetofrestaurants.wordpress.com

My email address is: mtoal@earthlink.net

All but a few of the photos on this blog are taken with Panasonic Lumix cameras. The Panasonic Lumix GH3, GX1 and LX7  are my main cameras.
