I own and operate Mark Paulda & Co., an online photography gallery that offers images in custom sizes and mediums to the trade. My entire professional career has been dedicated to meeting and exceeding the needs (and wants) of a discerning clientele. Let's begin a conversation. I'd like to assist with your design project. All of my images are available for commercial licensing. If you have a feature, story or advertisement that needs images, please, let's work together. I also have collected great stories during my travels. Perhaps you or your readers might be interested. Let's work together. I love getting to know people around the world. Many of my best friends and even great loves are people whom I met when they emailed to introduce themselves. Yes, it's really me, not an assistant, and I reply to all.
