About the Photographer
Mark first picked up a camera as a ninth-grader in 1972 photographing sports and other events for the local newspaper. After college, he pursued a career in journalism working for several newspapers around Florida. He later ventured into wedding and portrait photography and ultimately fell in love with photographing landscapes and wildlife.
Mark and his wife, Cheri, moved from Vero Beach, Florida to Santa Fe, New Mexico in June of 2014 after years of visiting and admiring the southwestern landscapes, culture, and people. When he's not photographing, Mark is an active Rotarian and enjoys hiking through the landscape with his wife.
Mark is the proud father of two daughters: one is a chef in Portland, Maine and the other is a Creative Consultant in Chicago, Illinois. He is also the proud pawrent of four wonderful canines: a doberman, a doberman-boxer, a lab-chao, and a shitzu...all of whom also enjoy hiking.
