He is the ideal tutor to help develop you photography.
“All our photography expeditions and workshops are based centrally within scenic locations. We provide the very best in accommodation, food, travel to locations and of course, high quality photography tuition. In addition, Mark will provide instruction, tips and techniques in post production to get the most from editing your images.
“Every photography expedition and workshop is an adventure in itself and I get to meet and teach some great like-minded enthusiasts along the way”.
Mark believes there is no greater travel experience than exploring fantastic locations and subjects with a small group of like-minded people.
Mark offers a variety of ways to improve your photography skills and his photography programs which are designed for amateur photographers of all levels, interested in improving their skills whilst exploring memorable and picturesque locations.
Since 2018, Mark has successfully led twenty-one photography tours and workshops to the following destinations including Iceland, Lofoten Islands, Norway, Scotland (Torridon & Glencoe), Faroe Islands, Isle of Harris & Lewis, Alaska, Isle of Skye, Svalbard, Lake District, Snowdonia and other locations in the UK.
Mark also leads small tours and workshops, specifically designed for photographing wildlife in their natural habitat both in the UK and internationally. These include Puffins, Otters, Seals, Penguins, Kingfishers, Polar Bears, Deer, Whales, Dolphins to name a few.
As a wildlife conservationist, Mark always adheres to the principles of eco-tourism on all his tours and workshops.
The workshops are suitable for any level of photographer, but we do recommend a basic kit list. Generally, this means a camera with the ability to work in manual settings and ideally a tripod and a selection of filters.
As a general rule we will normally have between 4-6 photographers on our group workshops. This allows Mark to provide the very best tuition to all photographers, whatever their level of skills and knowledge.
