meet mark parren taylor.
mark parren taylor is an award-winning editorial and commercial photographer who is turned to for his distinctive brand of travel, portrait, interior and food photography. His work features in a variety of magazines, books, guides and other media in the UK, US, Europe, east and southeast Asia, and Australia...​​​​​​​
mark trained as an illustrator, then found himself designing books before ending up back where he started as a teenager: behind the camera, looking at life through a lens.
mark is happiest working in a team or alone, close to home or far away, on a single shot or a whole story, to a focused brief or with a make-it-up-as-we-go-along approach ... in the end, he is there to create spot-on content.
mark loves heading on assignment for magazines, brochures and books—in between he's either in the heart of hometown London ... or shooting off somewhere under his own steam. Contact him to see what his plans are—he's always happy to integrate new projects into his trips.
He has extensive libraries full of unique, evocative, flavourful images waiting to be used. See if he's got what you need.
