Mark Bothwell has been a professional photographer for over 20 years and during that period has established a reputation for producing simple, striking work.
Demand for Mark’s portraiture and bespoke wedding photography means leading magazines, publishers, PR agencies, major corporations and private clients commission Mark to produce his relaxed, classic photography on an ever-growing basis.
A great believer in the fact that variety breeds creativity, Mark has worked commercially in over 50 cities around the world since he started working as a photographer aged just 21. During that time he has shot in locations as varied as the Sahara Desert and Western Africa to more glamorous locations in Europe, the USA, The Far East and Australia.
Recent UK wedding commissions have taken him to renowned locations including Westminster Abbey, The Houses of Parliament, Claridge's, Greenwich Naval College, The Ivy, One Marylebone, Ely Cathedral, Norwich Cathedral, Woburn Abbey, The Dorchester, The Reform Club and The Savoy. A particularly happy traveller, in recent months he has covered destination weddings in Paphos, Lisbon, Paris and Sydney.
Many established venues around the country now recommend Mark as a 'preferred photographer' to their wedding and event clients. These include London’s St Pancras Renaissance Hotel, Royal Hospital Chelsea, The Mandarin Oriental, Kew Gardens, Banking Hall, The Lanesborough, Fulham Palace, Somerset House, Institute of Contemporary Arts (ICA), The Lansdowne Club, Cowley Manor and the spectacular Shangri-La Hotel at The Shard.
With significant experience in studio photography, past and present commercial clients include: Mercedes, Aston Martin, Jaguar, Volvo, VW Group, Peugeot, Harper's Bazaar, the NHS, Castrol Oil, Royal London Asset Management, The National Bank of Abu Dahbi and the Tower of London, plus many other UK and international corporations.
Mark lives in Suffolk with his (always wonderful) wife, writer and journalist, Ruth Elkins - and (nearly always wonderful) son, Hugo.
