Mark is a professional photographer based in the seaside village of Strandhill in Ireland.

Mark used to be the only Irish Formula 1 photographer. Photographing F1 all over the world exposed him to the pressure of having to deliver required photos to major clients time and time again.

Mark covered the era of Michael Schumacher winning a record 7 world championships, and the era of Fernando Alonso taking over as double world champion.


He also had the experience of photographing future world champions Lewis Hamilton, Sebastian Vettel & Nico Rosberg battling it out in Formula 3 before they made their way to success in F1.


Since leaving F1 and setting up his own photography business in 2007, Mark has photographed almost 600 weddings all over Ireland.


Living by the sea with his wife Sarah, Mark is a surfer and prone paddleboarder. This had led to him photographing portraits of the diverse community of local surfers in and around his home village of Strandhill.


Mark's imagery is known for being clean, natural but vibrant without being heavily edited.
