Mark Liddell is a freelance photographer based in Glasgow, Scotland.
He graduated from the University of St Andrews with an MA in English Language and Literature, and was subsequently selected to participate as an English teacher in Japan’s largest cultural exchange programme. Mark bought his first “real” camera to document the journey, but – during his years as a teacher – was increasingly drawn to life behind the lens.
Now resident in the UK once again, Mark works as a photographer full time. Specialising in commercial photography, his work has been published internationally to market some of the world’s leading brands, from Japan Airlines to Virgin Active. His pictures have also been used in editorials worldwide, including Yahoo News, MSN, Men’s Health, and the Huffington Post, as well as on primetime television for the likes of CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert and British comedy/quiz show, QI. In addition, Mark is a contributor to Getty Images - the world’s largest stock photography agency; has exhibited across the UK; and regularly works with performers and talent to help promote their work.
In recent years, Mark has also turned his lens to wedding photography, using his eye for visual storytelling to help couples document their big day. His reportage-style photographs capture the authentic moments as they unfold; weaving raw emotion and technical artistry to sincerely reflect the spirit and occasion of the day.
He is available for commissions, all works considered. For information, plus prints and image licensing, please see the contact page.
