Mark HalskiCreator / Director
Mark is a director, creative director, cinematographer, photographer, and an editor. He loves being involved throughout the creative process from start to finish, and enjoys collaborating with agency and client alike.
In his previous life Mark spent 17 years as an advertising agency art director where he created award-winning brand advertising for clients such as Jack Daniel’s, Klipsch, Anheuser-Busch, and the St. Louis Cardinals. His time as an agency creative gives him an innate understanding for the creative process between agency and client and he has an acute appreciation for the importance of branding and strategy and staying on target.
Mark is a passionate creative who has a talent for crafting emotive stories that exude authenticity. He is at his happiest and most effective when his time is split evenly between holding a camera on production and refining a cut or retouching an image at his edit suite.
Since founding Halski Studio, Mark has produced award winning work for clients such as AT&T, The Hartford, the St. Louis Cardinals, Klipsch, and Smoothie King to name a few.
I have worked with Mark over many years, while he was at Arnold Worldwide, Waylon and now Halski Studio. I’ve been happy to follow him as his results speak for themselves. He was instrumental in shaping the brand voice for Klipsch while I was there. I’ve also worked with Halski on projects for Gilchrist & Soames and CEDIA and they bring incredible enthusiasm and passion to every project. I could not recommend them more highly!Christine PyleVP, Director of Marketing, Klipsch, Gilchrist & Soames, CEDIA

After hiring countless agencies, Mark and Halski Studio rose to the occasion as a boutique agency that delivers on their commitments and works hard to exceed expectations. Mark’s personal talents as a photographer are iconic. I have now hired Mark at three different organizations, that’s how much I think of Mark and Halski Studio.Seth BurgettEntrepreneur and Board Member, yurbuds Sport Earphones
Halski Studio are gifted creative partners with a rare combination of vision, and know how. I hired Halski Studio to produce our Weissman showcase video in 2013 and have continued to do so every year since. Our work together elevated our brand to heights I never imagined we could attain… Their enthusiasm and willingness to take chances is not only seen in the final product but has a positive influence on our entire team. If you get the chance to work with Halski Studio jump on it. I can’t wait to work with them again!Michael GardnerCreative Director, Weissman Designs for Dance
I can’t express enough how happy we at CEDIA have been with the projects Halski Studio have done for us. Beautifully shot, brilliantly edited, and always completed on-time and well within budget, their work is second to none. There’s another element to what they do, though: The Halski crew has the unique talent to make subjects who aren’t used to on-camera appearances feel at ease. They are as kind and patient as they are professional. Simply put, the process is as stellar as the results when team Halski is involved.Ed WenckContent Director, CEDIA
