Mark is an 'old-style' photographer, where the eye is everything.
Using a 35mm Film SLR camera, self-taught, he progressed into the commercial markets, passing the LBIPP photographic qualification in 1999; via the stills inspection and examination method.
Having moved into the DSLR world, he lags behind with some of the computerised software knowledge; so most of what you see here is either unadulterated, cropped or had its exposure adjusted.....little else.
The BIPP process likes theme; so combining this with his best loved bird; A Robin Home Page.
Mark has spent much of his life on the sea engaged in, rescue and teaching; sea kayaking, coastal power boating, living on an island and studied a degree in Marine Science.
Mark was injured while on duty in the police and has lived on Scotland's west coast ever since.
Mark has always had an interest in nature, animals and conservation, from ancient woodland to marine ecosystems; he calls himself a science-based environmentalist. Recently, feeding into the activities of others and supporting individuals and NGOs.
