Mark grew up in Rayleigh and now lives in Leigh. He has loved photography for as long as he can remember. About 5 years ago he set himself a personal challenge to capture a different local scene every day and is never without his camera. His passion is telling Leigh's story through its people, places and wildlife. He wants to help people to see the town's familiar spots in a new light and takes huge inspiration from the French photo-journalist Henri Cartier-Bresson and his capturing of 'decisive moments' or split seconds of drama.
