“Prior to taking up photography, it was almost as though I had been wearing blinkers all my life, because as I explored my creativity through photography I began to see everything in such astounding detail. Now everywhere I go I am inspired by my new world, and by the life and energy that animate it.” – Mark Davis

Born and bred in Bradford, Mark Davis is committed to delivering the perfect photographic image.

A fearless, versatile, and passionate photographer, Mark is equally at home whether at great height or at ground level, and is always seeking to capture and preserve that fleeting moment in time.

Mark believes that the right photograph, born of inspiration, creativity, and artistry, can translate thoughts and mood into a permanent image that is beyond the need of any additional description. As the saying goes, a picture is worth a thousand words… And a superb photograph is worth many thousands. This is a credo Mark believes in and always adheres to.

As a keen social historian focusing on the West Riding in particular, Mark has photographed Bradford from the core out for several years, recording the ongoing evolution of this great northern city.

Mark has worked for the National Media Museum, ‘Northern Life’ magazine, Ben Bailey Homes, BMW Automobiles, The BBC, Bedlam, The Imperial War Museum, Eddisons (Leeds), and Cedar Court Hotels. His work has also been exhibited in Menston under the banner “Reflecting On High Royds – A Haunting Portrait of the Former Psychiatric Hospital”.

He is also closely involved with High Royds Memorial Garden as a campaigner dedicated to giving a voice to those that were sadly without voices in life.

Mark makes his home in Haworth amidst the rugged landscape that inspired the Brontës and which continues to inspire him to deliver world-class photographs.

    Hello, I wonder if you can help. I am looking for a photograph of the Bradford Pals from 1914 and I have found one on your site. Is it possible to purchase a copy to make into a momento for my own use.

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Dear Mr Davis, I’ve sent you an e-mail but I don’t know if it’s gone (I’m not very technical). In it I asked about being able to use a copy of one of your Dalton Lane Mill photo’s. I worked briefly at the mill when I was a youth. I mention that fact in a book I’m writing. I’m not as professional writer and in essence I’m really writing the book for my daughter as a form of ‘historical record,’ although I will try and get a publisher if the finished product borders on readable. If so, would you allow me to use a copy of your photo in the book? I would give all the necessary acknowledgements etc. The photo concerned is the one one the page where you have about twenty or so. It’s on the second line from the bottom and the second photo in – the mill yard, where there are two vehicles parked – a Land Rover and a red car.

    Kindest regards, Terry Cavender

    Hi Mark,
    Can I first start by saying what wonderful photos you’ve captured of Bradford and the surrounding areas. Myself being a proud Bradfordian have seen the city in a different light through your photography. In the last 6 months I’ve bought myself a camera and started taking photos at every opportunity I get. In the last month I’ve been trying to get into more urban photography instead of taking loads of sunrise/sunset photos.
    I’ve browsed through your explore section and you have some amazing photos of abandoned hospitals, mills, cinemas etc. I want to try get better in urban photography and if possible could you give me some pointers, advice and maybe some locations to try out.
    If you get chance to take a look I’ve got a Facebook page under Chris Hardaker or CDHardaker photography. Hope to hear from you.

    Hello Mark, I was wondering if you would be so kind as to allow my classmates and I to use your photographs of Top Withens in a class presentation? The presentation will be at a public school for about 20 high school students and our Advanced Placement English Literature and Composition course.

    Thanks for your time,
    Areli V.
