portrait photography at its best



Located in the Washington Metropolitan Area, YIP Photography was founded by photographer, Mark Joyeux. A former freelance artist, Mr. Joyeux’s passion quickly shifted towards photography. What started out as a mere pastime soon evolved into a professional endeavor. In his eyes a picture was more than a quick snapshot, it was a piece of art. From composition, lighting to post editing....Mr. Joyeux would not consider a photo perfect until he believed it to be flawless finished work.
**His work has earned top photographic awards by the industry in addition to several pageants organizations, including National American Miss and International Jr. Miss. In addition, his work has appeared in numerous magazines including cover page model, brochures, websites, and talent search organizations. His headshots have
been instrumental in assisting clients secure major contracts with top agencies such as Wilhelmina Models, Click Models, & Abrams New York among others. Present as well as former clients have landed national print ads, commercials, movie and TV roles, for the likes of, Discovery ID Channel, TV One, HBO, ABC, BET, NetFlix, appearances on NBC Ellen Show, Steve Harvey's Little Big Shots, Saturday Night live,
