Mark Schwartzbard studied film at Ithaca College, then moved to New York and spent a decade working as a camera assistant on films including Woody Allen’s “Hollywood Ending,” and Martin Scorsese’s “The Departed,” as well as “Little Children,” “Rent,” “Hitch,” “Pollock,” and, the most fun of all, “Borat,” which led to work as a camera operator on director Larry Charles’ next few projects, including “Religulous” and “Brüno”.  He also went through a period of working, at one time or another, on many of the episodic TV shows filmed in New York, including “Now and Again,” “Ed,” “Sex In the City,” “Third Watch,” “The $treet,” “Hack,” “Philly,” and just about all of the Law & Order franchises.  He has a vague memory of working on a bunch of music videos for artists he can’t remember and on dozens and dozens of commercials he’d mostly rather forget.

As DP, Mark has shot fourteen narrative feature films including Sophia Takal's ALWAYS SHINE, Rick Alverson's THE COMEDY, Demetri Martin's feature directorial debut DEAN, Courteney Cox's feature directorial debut JUST BEFORE I GO, and Bryan Wizemann's ABOUT SUNNY. In TV, he shot both seasons of Aziz Ansari's Netflix series MASTER OF NONE, seasons 2 and 3 of Judd Apatow's series LOVE, and the Showtime series LA LA LAND. He's shot three documentary features, a healthy pile of shorts, and plenty of commercials. He now divides his time between New York, Los Angeles, and wherever the next job is.
