MARK GILLIGAN FBIPP

An official Ambassador for LEE FILTERS, Mark is one of only a distinct few across the world to be awarded the status of ‘LEE Master' and he

is, rightly, very proud of that honour. He is also an accredited, award-winning member of the British Institute of Professional Photography and

was made a Fellow by them because of his specialist and original work in the Lake District and Snowdonia. He also won the prestigious

#OMGB award in The Sunday Times Landscape Photographer Of the Year. That particular image is now used by the British Government to promote the UK across the globe. He is a writer too for many magazines and a member of the 'Outdoor Writers and Photographers Guild’ who regularly commend his photographic work. For over 35 years he was the Director of the Home Office national Video and Photography course and lead trainer, running his professional landscape work alongside that. You can imagine my trepidation at meeting ha ha!

Since that initial meet, Mark has mentored me and my photography has come on in leaps and bounds. My confidence has grown and I have taken an increasing role in assisting on the workshops. I find it very rewarding working with his clients and delighting as their knowledge and abilities develop. 

Mark's bespoke Landscape Photography Workshops are in high demand and he regularly undertakes them for photographers from across the world. Always tailored to the needs of his clients these are usually 1-1 or very small groups and take place in the Lake District or in Snowdonia with myself often joining and assisting.

 

As well as the workshops, I arrange the PHOTOWALKS with Mark and occasionally accompany him to the talks that he gives. .

He is very proud to also be supported in his work by  LEE FILTERS, BILLINGHAM BAGS, BERGHAUS, PACER POLES and 

BLACK RAPID STRAPS.
