Your photos are beautiful, inspiring and thought-provoking and the new layout of your site, with tutorials, photo descriptions that are creatively worded, and this guestbook is also outstanding. It seems such a contrast that you are pursuing an engineering career when you have so much artistic, creative talent. I always think of engineers as uncreative blokes who interpret the world mathematically, not artistically. You are an exceptional exception that I'm glad my daughter, who is an exceptional person herself, found. Donna
I'm a high school student who just started learning about photography. This site is absolutely beautiful and the tutorials helped tons. Thanks for showing me another site of photography ;)
What a beautiful site! Wonderful photos Mark, the internet makes a great way to keep up with family friends you don't see in millions of years! Hope all is well, Pat
Came across this website when looking for more unusual photographs (I typed in "abstract photographers"). Love the photographs and found the info given and the tutorials useful. I would have liked to know more about you, the photographer and what lead you to this type of photography.
Your last photographs are so nice! I've already said it a few month ago: I really admire your work, I'm never tired of coming here and watch these amazing picture :) Best regards. Mylene.
Your website is full of instructions. I liked it very much. I am using Internet from 1999. It is the first time in my life that I am writing in the guest book. The feature I liked that you've also included PDFs in your website which I can read later. Thanks for all the tips. Regards, Naveed
Mark, really nice work and a really fine well set up website. Your work has an identifiable style to it: making clean compositions from undisturbed nature. Composing in color is difficult for most but you seem to see the world that way. Wishing you success and a long career, tomD
Amazing!! Your work is just the type of photography i love to look at and try to produce myself. Keep up the good work!!
I enjoyed viewing your work,..the colors are vibrant and crisp, your eye for texture is amazing and I just want to compliment your work as "one of a kind"....Keep on clicking and traveling.
Hey. Erm, I'm only 14, but really interested in Abstract Photography. I've took some pictures and showed people and they say that it looks really good. But I just wondered, what qualities you have to have to be a photographer?
Mark, we have been looking at your recent additions to your website, and we continue to marvel! Love the "Big Dunes, Snow" one, the description comparing the larger dunes and their "enormous static weight" with the smaller ones "fleeting, like choppy waves". The "Dunes, Sweeping shadows" one is striking, too, the "brutal march of the inevitable sand into the evolving landscape". As always, your descriptions are so inspiring, but the one with the "Berries, Branches" really struck us..."creativity and energy can be hidden anywhere and my job is to amplify it, to frame and interpret it, but never to capture it." Great work, Mark....and we are so proud of you! Love, Mum and Dad
Cool tips. Really appreciate it.
I haven't seen anyone else who comes as close to photo graphic. I love your work. Have you ever visited Texas?
I am so moved by your photography! I am currently attending Black Hills State University in Spearfish, SD. My professor gave us an assignment to find and present a photographer that inspires us. I will be presenting your work in my class and wanted to know how long you have been shooting photos and how you were able to do this for a living if you don't mind sharing this information. I love photography and would like to have photography as a self-supporting career! Thanks for sharing your work with the world!
