If you invest time to work with me, you will meet a very laid back, honest and open-minded character that thrives to make the most of each and every day. My sole aim is to end each day with a smile on my face. I’ve travelled around to many countries and absolutely love finding new places to explore, searching for that perfect light to capture.
Well a little bit about me, My name is Ben Mark, I live in Crawley, West Sussex and have been taking photographs since 2005.
I grew up playing football most weekends, traveling around the south with my dad until my knee’s could no longer take the strain of running on wet mud. I started riding Mountain Bikes more often as it was easy on my joints and still got the same buzz. It was here that my eyes were opened into the world of photography!
I got a job working at a company called Upgrade Bikes and got involved in organising Big Dirt Jump events around the UK and also planning road trips for the team. I organised a road trip with a Spanish photographer called Sebas Romero, after watching him capture so many incredible images I was absolutely hooked. I decided there and then to invest my free time into learning/researching what it takes to take a good picture, 10 years on and I’m still learning!
All I knew was that I loved getting out with my camera and shooting pics as often as I could. The reason why I enjoy photography is that its an incredible feeling being able to capture a special moment for someone regardless of it being a wedding, sports event or portrait. Capturing a moment for someone to look at after its happened is an amazing feeling and I have just been fortunate enough that some of those moments have managed to make themselves into some magazines around the world.
I hope you like my work and feel free to get in touch.
