Mark Balman - Mark studied Graphic Design at Salisbury College of Art but is self taught in photography having learned to develop film and prints in a home garage darkroom. After 20 years away from photography working in wildlife conservation he had an overwhelming desire to reconnect with his creative side and purchased a Canon EOS 500D with a few lenses, filters and miscellany (he also has an ageing Mamiya 645 and is tempted to reuse at some point). He submitted some photos into the Landscape Photographer of the Year 2011 competition (his first ever competition), 2 were shortlisted and one of these receiving a "Commended" by the judging panel. He intends to keep taking photographs and is definitely entering next years competition.
