32169899_464832697268983_1145016419730063360_oMark is an artist, writer, graphic designer and photographer. His work is represented in photo agencies around the world, he has exhibited internationally, and is currently represented by Getty Images, and Trigger Image worldwide.

He has been photographing and developing his unique style and view of the world for more than 30 years. With a background in portrait and commercial photography, he has always enjoyed traveling and recording this world in images.

Having shot film for so many years, Mark has now embraced the technology of the twenty-first century: digital imaging. He has mastered the technology to the point of an art form. His passion is now digital manipulation of his images to evoke feeling and emotion in a form of ‘visual poetry’. He can take the ordinary and make it inexplicably extraordinary. His graphical visions take on a memorable and often moving dream-like feeling.

He believes that the true artist brings part of himself to the photograph and that the photograph should say something more than a pretty postcard.

Mark is also busy writing short stories and thinking about the nature of Reality – he has a deep interest in cosmology, metaphysics and philosophy.  He is working to bring awareness and change to the world in any way he can.

He lives with his 14 year-old son Jackson outside of Melbourne, Australia.

Mark has studied psychology, sociology, philosophy and social work. He has also worked in varied roles from factory worker to project management in the engineering industry.

 

[AKA – Mark writes his name in both the Anglicised form of ‘Mark James Gaylard’ / M James Gaylard, and also in the traditional French variant  of ‘Marcus Gaillard’]
