The studio has been established for over 25 years and is family run by Mark and his wife Tracy, along with a small dynamic team of 8 staff.

Mark’s work was selected to be displayed on the TV programme “One Born Every Minute” when it was filmed in Leeds, alongside many other local exhibitions. The well-equipped studios are air-conditioned and easy accessible via public transport and by car, with off street parking adjacent to the studio building.

Mark has been a photographer since leaving school. He started his career in Medical photography and also with one of the leading portrait and wedding photographers in the county, training and then moving onto being a fully qualified photographer. He now specializes in portrait photography after moving from the South of England to the North. Among Marks qualifications are 2 City & Guilds, qualified in the MPA, BIPP, SWPP & CrGoP, plus membership of two invite only exclusive groups of some of the best portrait photographers in the country.

Mark’s passion and commitment to his craft has enabled him to take the best from his classic training and blend it with the latest creative techniques, with the help of a young go-ahead team of staff around him who are always changing, re-inventing and keeping the studio style fresh and at the leading edge of photography.

“The Baby of the Month competition has been a perfect fit into our portfolio of sessions offered, which include Family Portraits, Boudoir and Makeover Photo-shoots, Business & Corporate photography plus the now popular themed sessions like Fairies & Frozen.”

Mark is so proud of winning the Baby of the Month award in May’s competition and being part of the nationwide programme. He is looking forward to being part of the competition for many months ahead and photographing many more babies and their families!
