About Mark

Mark Fearnley is a UK-based fine art street photographer.

A painter by profession, I first got into photography as I wanted to widen my creativity, so I decided to put down my brush and pick up my camera. Both are art forms that share so many similarities, like composition, focal point and use of light. I started to shoot and experiment by using puddles and glass for reflections, and later I added layers. I also loved the deep blacks of high contrast and found myself more drawn to black and white images. When shooting, I don’t look for people, I look for scenes. Graphical, geometrical forms and minimal scenes draw me in. It may be the light, the lines, the shapes, the repetition or simply the patterns: anything to add mood and significance to a solitary figure being dwarfed by the architecture in this vast world in which we live.
