The Faber Magicus pencil will mark even resin coated papers.  Make sure that you have the photograph on a hard surface, not a tablecloth, folder or magazine.  Christine's advice was correct.  The Magicus pencil is available from University Products.  Last time I looked, however, it was mislabeled as a Stabilo.  I have talked with them about it.
