"Although involved in event, artwork and other commercial photography, Mark's heart lies on the streets. There he capture life’s little moments, mostly missed by the unobservant, but always a treat for a street photographer."
I take photographs that I like. I like to continually get better, and I like it when others enjoy my photographs. Art doesn’t have to be described using inaccessible vocabularies or by seeking deep meaning. Most artists produce work they enjoy. I explore my art for its beauty and to improve.
 
For me personally, I have discovered (unexpectedly), that the world actually is a more beautiful place than I realised. It is only by learning to ‘see’ that I am now fully aware of what is going on around me, the contrast, the light, life’s little moments. It really is a joy, but it takes a lot of work to get there. If I can also inspire others then my work is done.
The amazing and inspirational Saul Leiter summed it up – ‘I don’t have a philosophy, I have a camera’. I really hope you enjoy looking at my photographs. If you see something deep in them, it is of course intentional.
For some background into my process and some of my photographs, check out my blog articles.
