"

THE WORLD IS MORE BEAUTIFUL THROUGH THE EYES OF A PHOTOGRAPHER"

” 

Mark Heathcote is a London and UK South East based documentary photographer using his experience shooting the streets to apply humour and a modern approach to his images. Mark's heart lies on the streets. There he capture life’s little moments, mostly missed by the unobservant, but always a treat for the viewer.
Mark's photographs have appeared in various publications and joint exhibitions, winning several awards and recognition. More recently Mark has been focussing on developing a number of photographic projects and developing educational content for his photography workshops.
"I take photographs that I like, and I like it when others enjoy my photographs. I try to be artistic and humorous to produce something unique. 
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 became fully aware of what is going on around me, the contrast, the light, life’s little moments. It really is a gift that anyone can acquire, but it takes a lot of work to get there. If I can pass this knowledge to others and relay messages through my projects then my work is done.
I really hope you enjoy looking at my photographs. If you see something deep in them, it is of course intentional."
