About Us

Philly Skyline

Imagic Digital is Mark Henninger and Danya Henninger, partners in work and in life.

Both of us now spend the majority of our time writing and doing photography. Danya writes mainly about food and beer, while Mark writes about home theater — i.e. TVs and stereos. We also shoot and produce video, and Mark is a music composer.

Over the years, our firm has evolved.

In 1997, we created Imagic Digital Darkrooms as a service bureau, offering the new world of digital creative services to photographers and advertising agencies. We moved into photography ourselves, and also web design and digital programming. Then we got into storytelling, producing videos and eventually launching freelance writing careers.

Bacon and Beer

We’re helping organize the first annual Philadelphia Bacon and Beer Festival, a fundraiser for MANNA. Held on December 8 at the Hotel Monaco, the festival sold out in a rather crazy 30 SECONDS.
