Friends and family would say that if you sliced Mark in half he would have photographer written through him like a stick of rock. Since he first picked up a camera aged 8 it’s been a life long love of his. He was lucky enough to grow up in Cornwall and would spend his weekends photographing the landscapes & people of his home county. It also meant that he was close to the prestigious Falmouth College of Arts where he achieved a BA Hons inPhotography in 1999.
After graduating from Falmouth he moved ‘up country’ and worked within the influential family portrait brand Venture in one of their flagship studios in the picturesque market town of Marlow where he was Style Director. After leaving Venture he was approached to assist in the set up of the next generation of portrait studios Imagine which was in the beautiful Wiltshire countryside. Never one to turn down an opportunity Mark took to this task with great gusto whilst also launching Lord & Leverett as the ones to watch in the field of wedding photography. Lord & Leverett broke the mould of traditional wedding photography and offered a new and innovative approach producing natural and exciting images of the big day. Mark was thrilled when this approach afforded him the exalted award of Wedding Photographer of the Year for the UK 2005 amongst many others.
All good things must come to an end and it is with great sadness but some excitement for the future that Mark will be going solo again. He looks forward to continuing with his love affair with photography and from 2013 Mark will be shooting a select number of weddings for the discerning couple who have an eye for fine photography.
