“Until I took up photography it was almost as if I had been wearing blinkers all my life because now I see everything. Everywhere I go I am inspired by my new world and the life and energy that surround it.” – Mark Davis
Born and bred in Bradford, Mark Davis is committed to delivering the perfect image.
A fearless, versatile and passionate photographer, he is equally at home at great height or at ground level, always seeking to capture forever that fleeting moment in time.
Mark believes that the right image, born of perfection and creativity, can translate thoughts and mood into a photograph that needs no description. As the saying goes: a picture is worth a thousand words. It is a credo Mark believes in and adheres to.
A keen social historian focusing on the West Riding in particular, Mark has photographed Bradford from the core out for several years, recording the on-going evolution of this great northern city.
He has worked for the National Media Museum, Northern Life magazine, Ben Bailey Homes, Bmw, The Bbc, Bedlam, 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 give a voice to those that were without one in life.
Mark makes his home in Haworth amidst the landscape that inspired the Brontës and which continues to inspire him to deliver world-class photographs.
