English born, Mark Mawson had a camera in his hand from the age of 8. After leaving school he studied photojournalism at Richmond College in Sheffield as his dream was to become a Fleet Street photographer. Following this he worked for several national daily newspapers in London including The Times, The Daily Mail and The Sunday Times until 1995 when he decided he wanted to have more creative freedom and direction over his subjects. He then moved into shooting for magazines and advertising agencies becoming well known for his celebrity portraits. In 2001 he moved to Sydney where he specializes in shooting people and fashion underwater. He has exhibited at the Roal College of Art in London and The Blender Gallery in Sydney. This work is from his series, Aqueous.
