Mark is a specialist Equine Photographer with a genuine love of working with horses. Based in West Sussex, but will also take commissions from all over the UK.
Equine photography is his passion; creating beautiful timeless portraits of your horse in an original way using many years of photographic skill learnt on unforgiving film emulsions, long before the invention of digital photography and Photoshop. His horse portraits have been compared to paintings by the old Masters, with their majesty and formal poses whilst still retaining the personality of the Equus Genus.
His early fascination with light and its interaction with subjects led him to a path of using controlled daylight and crafted studio lighting techniques to achieve images that are powerful yet calming and that convey the grace and humility provided to us by our horses.
"Beauty and drama with powerful serenity"
Horse photography is a specialist art form, requiring inexhaustible patience and dedication to understanding the equine form. This is reflected by there being only a handful of equine photographers in the UK, specialising in this difficult field.
