Born in the UK, Mark immigrated to Canada with his family in 1991 primarily for the greater opportunities Canada provides for his family and his love of outdoor pursuits. More recently Mark and his wife accepted an opportunity and moved to Dubai in the UAE where he is using it as a base for future photography travel destinations.
As a keen outdoorsman and having always had an interest in photography, for which he is self taught, Mark rekindled his passion for photography during his primary outdoor activity as a licensed falconer and the desire to capture some of the sights and scenes of the natural dramas he witnesses each day. Although always having been an ethical hunter and conservationist, in recent years Mark has taken to carrying his camera instead of his bow or rifle into the field. Mark realized that for the most dynamic experiences in experiencing what goes on in the wild could be found through photography. Those skills learned as a hunter now serves to help him when out with his camera and he is motivated by that fact that one single moment, that may never be repeated, can be captured and frozen in time for us all to explore and uncover in detail again and again. However Mark takes a holistic approach to photography and he recognize the fine balance between wanting to get that perfect image and a sincere desire to not impact negatively upon the subject he is attempting to capture.
