I have been dabbling in photography since my high school days borrowing my mother’s Olympus OM1 to photograph sports events. My first real camera, a Nikon F70 lead on to some freelance work in wedding photography. The digital transition took me on a new journey into the world of Photoshop. Since going digital, my work as a musician took me around the world to the Caribbean and beneath the sea to explore the world beneath the surface. From 2009, I launched my new business to enable me to cater for the needs of a client base that developed from my work with models and portfolio work.

Most recently, I have updated my equipment to include a Nikon D700, 50mm 1.4g, 24-70mm 2.8 and 105mm 2.8 Macro lenses, a Nikon D600 Speedlight and a Sigma Ring Flash. I invested in a complete studio rig allowing me to cater for all portraiture needs. This equipment upgrade has channeled my focus into work in the fashion industry. I continue to do freelance portrait and wedding photography in between portfolio shoots.

NEW Website just launched

For quite some time I have stared aimlessly at my rather ordinary website wondering what I can do to save it. Finally, I bit the bullet. 4 days of staring at a screen, messing with graphic designs in Photoshop and killing myself encoding it all by hand with html and I am left with the results of what I think is an improvement. Feel free to visit my site and let me know what you think! / mark e ph…
