A serious photographer for the past twenty years, Mark turned professional in 2013.
Based in Oxfordshire, Mark is an award-winning natural world photographer and photography instructor.
A popular workshop leader, Mark has eight years’ experience working within the industry as a photography instructor and he also leads photography workshops throughout the UK and internationally. (Photography Workshops)
As a passionate enthusiast of the great outdoors; photographing landscapes, seascapes, wildlife and natural world images are Mark’s favoured genres.
“I am inspired by remote locations such as coasts, mountains, lakes and forests; where untamed land is sculpted by natural elements. In effect, the great outdoors is my office space!”
A new project – “Masterclass Photography 2022” will increase the number of Mark’s video tutorials and more written articles being published. This is Mark’s primary goal for the foreseeable future.
“The spirit of adventure and exploration through a lens” – Mark Brion
The past year has seen Mark conduct more “field tests” and the opportunity to write in-depth reviews on new cameras and other photography equipment. This is an aspect of Mark’s work that he particularly relishes as it fully tests his photographic expertise and knowledge.
Throughout his working life, Mark has been particularly adept at public speaking and he regularly presents talks to photo enthusiasts and camera clubs around the UK. This also provides the opportunity to meet like-minded photographers and talk “all things photography”, which he enjoys immensely.
During his photographic career, Mark is proud to have achieved several awards for his work, particularly in the field of the natural world. He is currently undertaking an ARPS distinction with the Royal Photographic Society.
“When not working, I love to travel both in the UK and internationally and experience new destinations and cultures. Of course, I will always have my camera close to hand!”
Mark’s love of travelling and photography has seen him explore six continents and over 80 countries.
“Many of the destinations I have visited have been very beautiful in their own rights, but near to the top of list of my favourites has to be Iceland and Norway”.
In addition to his “ground” photography, Mark also flies Drones and enjoys capturing spectacular aerial photographs and videos in stunning locations. He has produced several videos which can be viewed on his YouTube Channel.
