One warms to Mark Leary's photographs almost instantly. They come out from the page to tell a story - be it about the person in the portrait, or the place in the location. With his unique colour palate and beautiful lighting, he creates a familiar, almost nostalgic feeling to his subject.
Mark has worked as a photographer for 12 years and bought his first camera aged 16. After studying maths he returned from 3 years in the USA working with children with cancer to try to become a photographer. He was given three book covers with Penguin, which led to his first advertising commission. Mark is about to publish his second and third books and has started shooting short films.
