Fine Art Photography
Mark Brookes is a freelance photographer based in Somerset. Having been fascinated by photography since childhood Mark studied at Salisbury Collage of Art and set up his own studio in Devizes, Wiltshire. Working in photography for most of the 1990's Mark gained a reputation for producing fine art landscape and documentary work with clients including Friends of the Earth, tourist authorities and environmental campaign groups. His personal work was exhibited widely and centred on themes such as classical nude and dancers. With the 1990's drawing to a close Mark took on increasing amounts of commercial work which led to him becoming disillusioned with the industry, eventually Mark closed the studio and changed career. Now over twenty years later Mark has returned to photography, using both modern digital and traditional medium format film equipment, his new work has been termed as being more gritty, often quirky and is gaining increasing attention.
Mark lives in Frome with his partner the Musician and writer Vicki Burke along with his youngest daughter Connie. His work is available as a range of fine art prints either directly or from this website, selections of prints are also available at Kerry Chapman interiors in Frome and at various art fairs in the south west. Mark is open to discussing commissions and collaborations with models and artists although he no longer takes on day-to-day commercial work.
