Hi there! I’m Mark Beahm, a food photographer with a passion for blending rustic charm with elegant aesthetics. Based in the beautiful cities of Barcelona, Spain, and Portland, Maine, I am always eager to travel for exciting new projects.

I believe in putting food in the best light, literally and figuratively. My approach goes beyond props; I meticulously use light to highlight the natural beauty and craftsmanship of the dishes I photograph. I enjoy collaborating with artisan brands to showcase the artistry behind every meal.

I have loved baking since I can remember and learned to bake from my mother and grandmother. I began working in restaurants at the age of 15, progressing from bussing tables and dishwashing to prep cook and eventually becoming a head baker. My professional baking experience and time in kitchens in both Portland, Maine, and London cemented my deep appreciation for the culinary arts.

Like baking, my photography journey started at a young age with my dad and his trusty (read: indestructible) Pentax K1000 from his college days—a camera I still cherish and use. This early exposure ignited a lifelong love for photography, but things really clicked when I combined it with my passion for food.

Travel is another of my great passions, having lived in 3 countries and speaking four languages. I use food as a window to learn about and connect with new cultures and friends wherever I go.

Let’s create something beautiful together. Whether you’re an artisan brand looking to showcase your products or a restaurant wanting to capture the craftsmanship of your dishes, I’m here to bring your vision to life. Feel free to reach out—I can’t wait to work with you!

My work has appeared in Simply Recipes, The Mediterranean Dish, Mashed, Bake Eat Love, as well as my blog, the Sunday Baker.
