Mark has had a camera in his hands since he was 8 years old. After leaving school at 18, he studied photojournalism in Sheffield, England, and then went on to work for many of the national daily newspapers in London including The Times and The Sunday Times. After a few years he began to look for something that gave him more directorial control over his subject matter.
Mark found his calling while creating Aqueous, a series he’s been working on since 2005. Aqueous is a journey into an undiscovered underwater world using a combination of colored liquids & photography. The colors swirl and blend resulting in beautiful creations. Mark jokes that he was first inspired to shoot the series by watching milk being poured into the numerous cups of coffee he drinks daily.
Aqueous is in many private collections and has won several awards and press. In 2009, he was a finalist in the Sovereign Asian Art Awards. In 2010, he was awarded a Gold and Platinum Award in the Dabomba Creative Awards and a Silver in the 2010 International Aperture Awards.
