Mark had a camera in his hands from the early age of 8 years old. He became fascinated by the movement of the camera’s mechanism and he played around with lights noticing how light and shadows changed the appearance of an object. By the time he was in his early teens, he had decided that he was to be a photographer and was interested in a career in photojournalism.
After finishing school, he studied photojournalism and then worked for several national newspapers in London covering news and sports assignments. After a few years in newspapers he decided he needed a different challenge and moved over to shooting fashion and celebrity portraiture for magazines and advertising agencies. During this time Mark travelled extensively around the world shooting fashion stories and working with Hollywood celebrities and photographed several members of the British Royal family!
In 2004, Mark had an idea to shoot some liquid images of paints in water using high speed photography, his first test shoot worked very well and his ‘Aqueous’ series was born. Since then, Mark has developed the idea and has produced several ‘Aqueous’ series which have become collectable pieces of art. He now specializes in shooting liquids and underwater fashion.
In 2012 a video piece of Mark’s was projected onto the walls of Buckingham Palace as the backdrop to The Queen’s diamond jubilee celebrations.
