Hello I’m Mark!
Whether you have dropped by to find your ideal Wedding Photographer or are looking for an intrepid documentary photographer or maybe you’re here to book a place on one of my Photography Workshops on the Isle of Man or Scottish Highlands. Whatever your reason you’ll no doubt want to know a little more about me.
Born in 1975 on the Isle of Man, a tiny 'rock' located in the middle of the Irish Sea 15 miles South West of the Southern most point of Scotland, 30 miles East of Ireland, 30 miles West of England's Lake District and about 40 miles North of Holyhead in Wales. In the middle of everywhere, in the middle of nowhere. Shaped by wilderness and my desire for the arts I soon found myself in pursuit of capturing light. University took me to Edinburgh after which I began writing and photographing for a handful of UK based magazines. Now I capture images for multi-national clients from all over the world. From huge companies to celebrities, from small local businesses to ‘family day out’ shoots. Sounds like fun? It is. But it’s even harder work!
My clients have a personal guarantee that their needs, expectations and overall vision for their wedding, event, commercial shoot, whatever project I have been commissioned for will be met and where possible exceeded.
