Mark studied engineering and has a PhD from the University of Cambridge. His interest in film and photography began in his late teens, working on short animations and mainly monochrome images.

Now based in South Buckinghamshire, UK, his practice is focussed in documentary photography, with his main   interests in Social Documentary and occasional Street Photography. 

Although largely self-taught, he has also attended a number of courses, to build specific skills. In June 2014 he gained his Associateship of the Royal Photographic Society (ARPS) and has completed a number of short courses including MoMA (Seeing Through Photographs), London Street Photography Symposium, Magnum Education on Photobooks and Publishing, Magnum Workshops and other documentary workshops.
