Louisiana Legend

 Mark Lagrange




Through the years I have photographed with many, many nature photographers.  Of all them, Mark is the one who surprises me the most.  Just when I think he has produced the greatest possible image of all time, he always seems to reach into his bag and find another one that is even better.  His talent seems to only be limited by the time he spends behind the lens.  He is truly one of the greats in the making.  LANPA wishes him much success in his shooting career.

Mark Lagrange, a northshore native, is an award winning photographer who has taught, lectured, and led photo shoots throughout Southeast Louisiana.  As style goes, the challenge that Mark places on himself is to go beyond the scenic or wildlife documentary.  His photographs emphasize composition, lighting and sense of motion that brings his art to life.
