Mark was drawn to the camera in high school where his father was an art teacher forcing him to steer clear of traditional art classes and take up photography instead. After winning the first photo contest at The Parish Art Museum in Southampton judged by Irving Penn and Roy Lichtenstein it was a life changing decision and the beginning of a long love affair with the camera.
