Mark R Coons - Music Man5 Photos
Event Photography & More!
Music Man5 Photos provides expressive, artistic photographic services, tailored to each client, for those with a discerning taste for quality photography. We believe in creating dynamic, comfortable photography sessions (whether it be at an event or a personal portrait session) that allow the client to relax and reveal his or her true personality.
Music Man5 Photos is a small, family owned and operated business. Due to our small size, we are able to offer imaging services that can be tailored and personalized to meet the clients' needs.
EventsWe cover personal events (parties, reunions, informal get together's, gatherings - Sorry, no weddings!) and events for non-profit organizations. At this time we only do events held in the Bloomington/Normal area.
We have 2 levels of coverage [ 2 hours coverage ($350) & 1 hour coverage ($290)] and a 50% retainer fee is required.

We specialize in photographing those treasured events that occur in your life. This includes the areas of:
* Theatrical Performances
* Musical Performances
* A Family or Organizational Gathering
* Charity Events
It is our goal to capture not only the individual images but to preserve the feelings and emotions of the entire event.
We would meet prior to your event so that I can determine what your needs are, what level of coverage is needed, if a second photographer is needed, if you have a 'wish' list of shots you like, to scout the location where your event will be held, to discuss our product catalog and to take care of any needed paperwork. (To view our catalog just click click here.) We would set the date/time of your event and when our coverage would start/stop.
At your event, we will roam and capture candid shots in an unobtrusive way, recording the moments as they unfold. I will also take any group or portrait shots that we discussed in our first meeting.
Once the remaining portion of you bill has been resolved we will place your photos on this website in a personal gallery for you and your friends and family to view and order. The prints/products you order will come directly to you through the mail!
Why should you use my print service, you may be asking yourself. The answer to this is that my print service is through Smugmug and they guarantee their work. Their guarantee: "If you are unhappy with your prints or gifts, Smugmug will reprint or refund your order, whichever you prefer. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org within 30 days of receiving your order."

Does your non-profit or charitable organization need money? Then selling photographs of your event is one way to get it.
If you are producing a play or having a concert what better way to raise money than to sell photos of the event. For non-profit organizations we will photograph your event and provide you with your photos on CD or DVD. You can then sell prints from the CD/DVD or make buttons or sell the whole thing. That is up to you.
Here is what we will need to cover your event:
After the shoot is over we estimate that it will take me two days to process the photos and burn them to a thumb drive for you. They will then be given to the liaison. If you need a waiver form from us in order to produce your projects just let us know.
In return for these services:
1) I will have placed one image on the thumb drive that is an ad for Music Man5 Photos, please leave it there.
2) In your program could you say “Photography by Mark R Coons / Music Man5 Photos” and list my website address (http://www.musicman5photos.com/). Or I can provide your publicity person with a formal ad for your program.
3) My 'event fee' (listed above) maybe charged depending upon the organization or may be donated back to the group or reduced. We can discuss this as it is negotiable.
My website will have an album containing all your photos but they will not be for sale while your event is going on. Only after your event has completed will these photos be made available for sale. If you’d like I can list your sale information in the album telling your patrons how they can purchase your products during your event.
