About Mark Rego
Mark revels in the challenge of capturing the extraordinary in the ordinary. Marrying the art & science of photography, he creates images that evoke emotion through a memory - a story – a question and, accomplishes this across diverse themes.
Mark’s approach to light and color create scenic & nature images likened to paintings. Imagery focusing on elements found in an America all but disregarded, bring the past to life – portraits of forgotten treasures. His indoor and specialty collections generate images that celebrate the story.
Born in isolated moments of a hectic business & family life, mark’s work evolved from hobbyist. He began exhibiting in fine art shows & nature competitions in Chicago. After coming to Louisville, Mark's passion for photography deepened. He & wife Claudette developed Captured in Color, producing commissioned work, fine art prints & museum quality, frameable, gallery cards. Mark is a Kentucky Crafted Artist (Kentucky Arts Council), a member of the Louisville Artisan Guild, and was chosen as a 'Southern Artistry' artist.
