BIO

Mark caught the photography bug from his dad when he was ten but only made it his career choice when he dropped out of electronic engineering at university and signed up at Art School instead. From that moment on Mark never had any doubts about the path he was following.  Mark’s first commissions were from World of Interiors Magazine (UK), Elle Decoration (UK) and publishing companies in the UK, Europe and Thailand where he lived and worked for a year shooting books on Thai art & architecture. Returning to London, settling down and having two children meant concentrating on editorial for clients in the UK including Vanity Fair, Tatler, Homes & Gardens and House & Garden and advertising work for all the major retail brands including Harrods, Marks & Spencer, John Lewis, Libertys, Selfridges and The White Company. Further commissions in Europe, the US and Africa expanded Mark’s experience and interest, especially in Interiors, Décor and Architectural photography, and having spent many years shooting a mixture of fashion, interiors and lifestyle photographs Mark has built a worldwide reputation for high quality specialised advertising and editorial work.

As a photographer Mark now spends his time shooting in South Africa and overseas for many high-end Advertising clients and publications in SA and Europe. Mark’s love of travel has never diminished, leading him to become one of the leading hotel and lodge photographers in Africa. Mark also enjoys seeking out beautiful and interesting houses all over the world which he photographs for various international and local magazines, and for syndication worldwide.

Mark fell in love with South Africa & Cape Town while shooting advertising campaigns there, came back on holiday and bought a beautiful white wooden house on Noordhoek beach where he now lives with his children and his wife Nathalie, who is originally an interior designer from Belgium. Six years ago Mark started Beachhouse Productions, a successful international production company, which managed shoots in South Africa for many prestigious UK clients such as Marks & Spencers and She magazine. For Mark, photography has been, and always will be a passion that drives him to seek out memorable experiences, fresh challenges and new ways to create beautiful images.
