Mark is a documentary photographer based in south Buckinghamshire, near London UK.  His practice is focussed on 'constructive' social documentary projects, with an interest in stories about people and groups taking action to build ecosystems that address social problems.

Mark originally 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 monochrome views of the urban environment.

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), Magnum Education on Photobooks and Publishing, Magnum Workshops and other documentary workshops.
