A little about me ... well, what can I say. I started photography back in 1979 when I was just 11 years old.

I was given a 35mm SLR Camera by my late Grandfather as a birthday present. The camera was a Russian built Zenit EM and built like a house brick. Many of my slides on here are taken with the very same camera.

My passion stemmed from my Grandfathers love of photography and in particular his fondness of the English Lake District. I will showcase his work on here in the coming months, but there are over 10,000 slides and I have quite a task ahead of me scanning them in.

In the late eighties and early nineties I moved on to autofocus SLR's and began to accumulate quite a stash of equipment. In between my full time employment and sleeping I started doing small photographic assignments for freinds, family and small businesses.

In the early 2000's I started using a digital camera and traed all my traditional film cameras in for more equipment.

I took an avid interest in aviation photography at the start of the 2000's when digital cameras became more accessible. My enjoyment was taken up a level when I discovered I could mix my love of light & colour with aviation photography by taking photographs like this

Having changed my approach in 2009 I decided to try many avenues that I havent covered before; see the examples below:




Photography is an art, and is very personal. There are no rights and wrongs in this profession. I learned that if you like something and are happy with it then thats where the book stops. This rule changes when you are doing something for a client of course.......

I hope you enjoy looking through my images. Please feel free to make comments or email me at

Thank you.

    CJS*64 A man with a camera says:

    "Anyone can press the shutter button on a camera & capture an image, this is the easy bit, for me the skill is what you actually see through the viewfinder & how you present the resulting photo. Marks works illustrates this to perfection. A contrasting mix of various styles & subjects makes his work a complete pleasure to browse through with a hope that one day i will achieve these high standards. Like a novel you don't want to put down Marks photostream is a novel you don't want to turn off. Excellent work Mark thanks for the inspiration long may it continue."

    Jimmy McIntyre - Editor HDR One Magazine says:

    "Mark has some beautifully balanced and sharp images, in both color and black and white. Rather than simply turning any image to monochrome, Mark chooses with skill which images should retain their colour and which would suit a monochromatic style.

    I'm particularly fond of the stunning golden hour shots he's published in the UK. He clearly knows his way around a camera. If only I could capture more of those elusive English sunsets. Keep up the great work Mark."
