Photography Courses for Local Residents of the Isle of Man
Your Home Island is a Photographer’s Dream!
Crimson sunsets, sparkling sunrises, tranquil and tumultuous seascapes, deep green moss laden plantations, rolling heather covered hills, rippling streams, babbling brooks, atmospheric glens, old ruins and castles…. and that’s not to mention the bird life (choughs, auks, pergrine falcons and hen harriers) and sea life (grey seals, minke whales, porpoises, dolphins and basking sharks). You live here… You know what it’s like… But capturing can be difficult. The mood, the atmosphere the sense of the overall environment. It can be a challenge.
My name is Mark. I am a professional photographer. I was created, born and bred on this fair isle. It’s safe to say my geographical knowledge of this small Celtic gem ensures you will return home with a series of stunning landscapes, seascapes or wildlife images. Whatever the weather, from blazing sunshine to stormy seas there are breath taking images to be captured. My experience and understanding of when and where to be will assist you no end when it comes to achieving your photographic goals; with well over a decade of experience as a professional photographer, having worked alongside a plethora of lifestyle magazines and large and small business, along with a consistent series of accolades such as finalist in International Garden Photographer of the Year, and shortlistings on an almost annual basis in the prestigious Travel Photographer of the Year and Outdoor Photographer of the Year awards, you will have access to a wealth of understanding and experience when it comes down to capturing and ‘developing’ stunning land, seascape and wildlife images. What’s more you are going to have fun! As I share you will learn all that’s needed when it comes to the technicalities of photography, allowing you to capture the world in your very own style. From shutter speeds to focal lengths, ‘golden triangles’ to ‘sunny sixteens’ my teaching will make understanding simple and memorable.
