“The spirit of adventure and exploration through a lens” – Mark Brion
A serious photographer for the past twenty years, Mark turned professional in 2013. He has since worked on numerous on-location shoots around the UK and internationally and his photography has been published on various websites and in hard copy publications.
He is passionate in the field of natural world photography and enriches the expedition and workshop experience through his presentations and informal discussions.
Mark has also recently become a Photography Mentor for the National Geographic.
“As a mentor, I will be providing assistance and tuition for junior photographers on a one-to-one basis to improve their standard of photography. I am really looking forward to the challenges that lay ahead”.
His passion for the natural world has seen Mark take an active interest in global conservation issues in the world today.
Where possible I will always adhere to the principles of Eco-Tourism.
“My primary conservation interest lies with the environment and endangered wildlife species and raising awareness through my photography” – Mark Brion
“I am now affiliated with several well-known international conservation organisations and getting involved with these great causes. Who wants to see a world without elephants, rhinos, pangolins, orangutans and more? It is just unthinkable. I am spending a lot of my spare time researching these causes and after covid restrictions are lifted, I intend to dedicate my spare time to help out. It’s the least I can do”.
I have recently written an article entitled – Eco Tourism – The Way Forward?. It explains how we may view tourism in the future and help to protect the environment, people and wildlife of popular destinations around the globe.
“I also hope to arrange some photography expeditions and workshops in the future and have produced a new conservation page on this website to raise awareness of these issues”.
“My passion is photographing the great outdoors through natural world photography. I developed my photography style several years ago, photographing a wide variety of landscapes and seascapes.
One of the most enjoyable aspect of my work is organising, drawing up an itinerary and leading photography expeditions and workshops both in the UK and internationally”.
The expeditions and workshops are set in some of the most scenic and often challenging locations around the globe.
“Every photography expedition or workshop is an adventure in itself. I also get to meet and teach some great like-minded people along the way”.
“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, Norway and Alaska.
During recent years, Mark has had many natural world photographs published in hard copy magazines and also several photo-journalist articles covered across various internet sites and on a number of social media platforms.
In addition to his “ground” photography, Mark also flies Drones and enjoys capturing spectacular aerial photographs and videos in stunning locations.
