Frequently Asked Questions
Who are you
My name is Mark Del Mar and I'm a portrait photographer based in Miami Beach, Florida.
How did you start photography?
It started with a girl but doesn't it always? I moved to Alabama after serving in the military and fell in love. We were together for four years until we reached a fork in the road. I spent weeks brooding in a half-empty apartment. I needed something, anything to occupy my mind. I discovered Flickr and closely followed the lives of several conceptual photographers. A few months later I had saved up enough money to buy my very own camera. It was like falling in love all over again.

Are you a full-time photographer?
I've been a full-time photographer as of January 1, 2016. Three years after beginning. Thanks to amazing followers like you, I'm able to support myself and pursue my dream from purchases made on this website.
Where did the name 'Bleeblu' come from?
Several years before I bought my camera I was looking for a job. I had heard stories of employers tracking your Facebook down and find reasons not to hire you. I had plenty of drinking photos with my friends but didn't want to hide or delete them. So I ended up changing my last name to 'Bleeblu' instead. It kind of stuck ever since.
