Mark Leary

Director | Photographer | Friend

“With his unique colour palette and beautiful lighting, Mark Leary creates a familiar, almost nostalgic feeling to his subject.”
Aine Donovan – Associate Producer, BBH London

“Mark’s imagery is dreamlike. Whether it’s magnificent snow-capped mountains or surfers at sunset, everything he shoots has a magical quality. His images convey universal concepts of wonder, adventure, exploration, living in the moment and mindfulness.”
Guy Merrill – Global Head of Art, Getty

With over thirteen years of stills & film expertise, Mark has created award winning fine art images, films, advertising campaigns, design & editorial works and published three books.
