Hi, I’m Mark, thanks for taking the time to have a look through our site. So a little about me………I’m a classically trained photographer, learning my trade long before the digital era came about, spending countless hours locked away in a darkroom, vast amounts of student loans being poured away on reel after reel of film and photographic paper, but one who ultimately developed his skills as a photographer who in the true sense of the word, “paints in light” and has an intrinsic understanding of capturing the perfect moment and creating timeless images.
Having perfected my trade and worked in various studios I realised that the only way to progress and forge a way forward was to head out on my own and develop my own, and what is now a quite unique and individual style of photography, and this is what you see today. So in 2009 Atlas Photography was born, and I haven’t looked back from there! Since starting out on my own, I’ve worked with many major clients, shooting events, product and virtually all genres of photography throughout the years, nothing is as rewarding, as fulfilling and satisfying to me in life as capturing the perfect moment in a photograph.
I opened my first studio in Salisbury in March 2017 – Studio 8, and have been immensely lucky in the new scope that Atlas has been given. This gave us the creative space we needed to focus even more so on our portrait and product photography as well as a permanent office and editing suite. Having the studio customised to meet our exact needs we now have the ability to push our creativity in so many different ways and on a totally different scale.
When it comes to wedding photography, I know that in fact I’m the luckiest person on earth. I get to spend my days working with couples in love, capturing breathtaking moments of their most important day. The reward of seeing the emotion and happiness my images bring is beyond riches. As clients first look through a wedding album, this is happiness that couples won’t just share for that moment, but will cherish for a lifetime, every time they see their images. This is my passion, this is my drug, the food that feeds my creativity and my soul. I am the luckiest man on earth!
So by now you may be wondering “who’s the girl in the picture”. Well this is my partner and the love of my life, Sara. Whilst I’m the photographer, the creative, Sara is the organiser, a second eye for detail and the other half of what makes us a perfect team. At any wedding day I shoot, Sara works with me and the wedding party to make sure that everything runs smoothly and seamlessly so our clients get the perfect wedding experience. I couldn’t imagine a more perfect partner.
This really means that what we bring to our clients is perfectly honed wedding day photography, capturing the magical essence of your day in our unique style, told with our fine art work, revealing your story to all that gaze upon your images.
