Born in New York City in 1971, Mark spent his childhood in Africa and Europe. He returned to the United States at age 9 to attend school, and later studied both traditional photography and computer graphics. In 1997, he founded the digital imaging firm Imagic Digital with his wife, Danya.

An accomplished technophile, Henninger adopted digital-photo technology in its infancy, and uses the latest techniques to create photos that go beyond traditional film capture. As display technologies matured, he tackled new media such as digital music and high-definition video production. Today, he lives in Philadelphia with Danya and his two pets, Kirk and Mikoto. Henninger's hobbies include cooking, writing, and just about anything computer-related.,
