Despite an idyllic rural upbringing, Mark has a 'trend' credibility second to none. He began his career expelled from St Martin's school of Art. His lack of college work opposes the result of his extra curricular activities: designing programmes for John Galliano's first shows, flyers for legendary 80's London warehouse parties, record sleeves, and stints at The Face Magazine. He was the director of Arena magazine, for which he was later titled Magazine Designer of the year in 1991. A long term contributor to Magazines such as UK Vogue, iD, Esquire, he has additionally worked regularly for countless more, from the Big Issue to American Vogue. Excited by the revolution he sees occurring right now in photography, and in an environment ripe for change, he has turned a lot of his attention to his own photo work and publishing.
